The Detroit Red Wings have announced details for the team’s first-ever home opener at the new Little Caesars Arena.

Tomorrow, the Red Wings will hold a Red Carpet Walk through the Chevrolet Plaza for fans to cheer on current players and alumni as they enter Little Caesars Arena. That will begin at 4 p.m.

Before, during and after the Red Carpet Walk, the Chevrolet Plaza will hold a pregame party with games, live music, food and drinks for both ticketed and non-ticketed guests.

Fans in attendance will be treated to a “breathtaking” Opening Show with the full visual and audio capabilities of Little Caesars Arena on display for the first time.

“We have been eagerly anticipating the Home Opener and we’re looking forward to welcoming fans into Little Caesars Arena for the first regular-season Red Wings game,” said Tom Wilson, President & CEO of Olympia Entertainment. “We have numerous initiatives and events planned for those who will be in attendance, along with those who may not have a ticket but are looking to be a part of the celebration of the ‘Inaugural Season at Little Caesars Arena.’ Starting with the pregame party in Chevrolet Plaza, to the Red Carpet Walk and leading to the in-game viewing experience, we’re excited to build on the momentum from the preseason and take it a step further to show fans the capabilities and experiences possible at Little Caesars Arena – as we continue to make lasting memories on and off the ice within The District Detroit.”
