Nelly will headline Winter Classic’s pregame entertainment

XM All-Star Futures Game

The entertainment at the 2017 Winter Classic at Busch Stadium will have some recognizable local flavor. Nelly is scheduled to headline the entertainment on Monday, January 2nd heading into the St. Louis Blues’ outdoor game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The NHL recently released information regarding all of the weekend’s activities.

Nelly will headline The PreGame entertainment on Monday, Jan. 2 at 10:30 a.m. CT with a performance of his hit songs. Fellow St. Louis natives, Legends Undercover – an all American cover band covering rock-infused top 40 music with a touch of Midwest charm – will perform three sets on Sunday, Dec. 31 starting at 10:00 a.m.

The NHL has been widely criticized for their taste in music, but choosing Nelly seems like a perfect fit. Nelly has personally described himself as a St. Louis sports “homer” and has popped up at multiple Blues games over the years.

Let’s end this post with some classic Nelly.
