FRISCO, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the hockey club has secured several popular musical acts to perform during the Western Conference Finals while the series is in Dallas for Games Three and Four. The music will be featured at both the Pre-Game Parties on the Plaza and during Intermissions of the games. The Stars will host the Detroit Red Wings for Games Three and Four on Monday, May 12, and Wednesday, May 14 (both 7:00 pm start times).

Monday May 12 – Game Three of the Western Conference Finals

Pre-game PARTY ON THE PLAZA LIVE PERFORMANCE by Grammy-nominated artist Bowling for Soup. These hometown heroes (Denton) are best known for singles Girl All the Bad Guys Want, 1985, Ohio (Come Back to Texas) and High School Never Ends. They’ve sold over a million albums and their intense live show is the perfect complement to an already exciting event, Stars playoff hockey.

Between Periods LIVE ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE from the Stars’ player bench by Vaden Todd Lewis of legendary DFW-based bands The Toadies and Burden Brothers. Vaden is no stranger to Stars games and his song Beautiful Night has become an anthem with the lyric “a perfect time to watch The Stars.” There’s a rumor he may be joined by “special guests” during his intermission performance.

Wednesday May 14 – Game Four of the Western Conference Finals

Pre-game PARTY ON THE PLAZA LIVE PERFORMANCE AND Between Periods LIVE ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE from the Stars' player bench by The Old 97’s. Fresh off their performance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno these former Dallas Stars season ticket holders couldn’t wait to return home to support their favorite NHL team. The Old 97’s have always “BELIEVED” in the Stars and they were the first band to ever perform from the Players’ bench during the 2007 Playoffs. The Old 97’s are best known for songs Murder (Or A Heart Attack) and Timebomb (they performed the latter in the 2006 Jennifer Aniston / Vince Vaughn movie The Break-Up). The Old 97’s new album Blame It On Gravity is available everywhere May 13th.
