Sam Hunt Will Headline The NHL Winter Classic PreGame Show At FENWAY And It’s FREE
Happy New Year, Boston!
This is how we are kicking off 2023 in our beautiful city…with country superstar Sam Hunt and hockey! Sam will headline the 2023 Discover NHL Winter Classic in Boston on January 2nd. Hunt tweeted about his free pre-game show saying, “We’ll be kicking off the @NHL_On_TNT Winter Classic with a free show, open to the public, at the NHL @BR_OpenIce ‘Breakaway’ pregame in Boston on Jan 2nd. See you there.”
Sam Hunt. Fenway Park. Free concert. Boston Bruins. Are we dreaming? Here’s the tweet that made the dream come true:
Ok, so technically, Sam’s show will be at the Brookline Lot next to Fenway Park, but still…
This fan experience will be the first of it’s kind for NHL fans. The festival leading up to the game will kick-off this Friday, December 30th at the NHL Winter Classic Plaza. This year will be very special as the game at Frozen Fenway Park will star our own Boston Bruins vs. the Pittsburg Penguins. This year’s NHL Winter Classic is the fifth NHL regular season outdoor game for the Bs, and the second time the game has been hosted at Fenway. (FYI: Boston beat the Philadelphia Flyers in OT back in the 2010 Winter Classic).
The National Hocky League has been presenting a regular season outdoor game in the new year since 2008. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the first Winter Classic in Buffalo.
