Dodger fans attending Saturday’s game are in for a treat.
Soul and R&B singer and songwriter Robin Thicke will be performing at Dodger Stadium as he helps fans and the team celebrate their 2014-2015 Opening Weekend at home.
Thicke will perform three songs including his record-breaking hit “Blurred Lines” right before the Dodgers take on the San Francisco Giants in the second game of a three-game series.
Pero, not only that, the 37-year-old superstar will also throw the ceremonial first pitch right before the game.
“We are very excited to welcome mega-artist Robin Thicke to Dodger Stadium and partner with Interscope in presenting this very special pre-game performance as part of the Dodgers’ Opening Weekend,” said Lon Rosen, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of the Dodgers in a press release. “Robin is a magnificent, iconic performer, who is perfect to help our club launch the start of another thrilling year of Dodger baseball. We look forward to continuing to offer our fans exceptional entertainment at Dodger Stadium that complements our dynamic play on the field.”
The L.A. native is a Dodgers fan himself. He is often seen at games and put on the jumbrotron, to which the crows goes wild.
This is first time Thicke will be performing at a Major League Baseball game.
The Dodgers partnership with Interscope will also bring recording artist Lupe Fiasco to perform at the historic stadium. Fiasco’s performance is scheduled for Sunday right before the 5:00 p.m. game.
On Wednesday, the team announced via social media that more tickets to both games have become available. Check dodgers.com for more info.
With all these performances, large crowds are expected at Chavez Ravine this weekend. Therefore, it is advised to get there early if you have a ticket.
The Dodgers opened up their season last week in Australia. They are currently 3-1.
