The intermission entertainment for the Sharks-Kings Stadium Series game on Saturday at Levi’s Stadium has been revealed.
The NHL announced that Bay Area native John Fogerty will perform in the first intermission, while country star Melissa Etheridge will be the second intermission act. Prior to the game, Symphony Silicon Valley and former American Idol winner Kris Allen will perform, including Allen singing the National Anthem.
Also before the game, there will be a tribute to California hockey and a number of former Sharks players will be recognized, including fan favorites such as Owen Nolan, Jamie Baker, Mike Ricci, Igor Larionov, Bryan Marchment and Mike Rathje.
Born in Berkeley, Fogerty, a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, was the leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival, which penned such hits as “Fortunate Son,” “Proud Mary,” and “Bad Moon Rising.” His solo hits include “Centerfield,” a staple at baseball parks across the country.
Etheridge’s career spans almost 30 years, and she is known for such hits as “Come To My Window,” and “I’m the Only One.”
During the pregame show and at the intermissions, fans will be asked to use their mobile phones to access the Levi’s Stadium app and “blanket the stadium with a synchronized, multi-colored visualization of the live musical entertainment on the field,” according to the press release.
