Milwaukee, WI—More promos are here! We are excited to reveal the second phase of our 2022-23 promotional schedule today which features many of the team’s signature events like the Admirals Concert Series, unique bobbleheads and fun giveaways.
As in most seasons, the team’s promotional schedule is highlighted by the Admirals Concert Series, presented by Toyota, Coors Light, Landmark Credit Union, and Lee Jeans, where national recording acts perform LIVE after the team’s game. Best of all, the concerts are free with a game ticket.
This year’s Concert Series kicks off on Saturday, January 28th when Country Music Star Scotty McCreery will hit the stage after the Ads battle the Grand Rapids Griffins. Then in March the Ads will host shows on consecutive nights beginning with Russell Dickerson on March 10th and the very next night, March 11th, Dropkick Murphys return for their first gig at an Ads game in 10 years. The final show in the 2023 Admirals Concert Series will be Stone Temple Pilots, who hit the stage after the Ads game against Chicago on April 14th.
In addition, for as little as $25 fans can purchase an on-ice pass which allows them exclusive access to watch the concert from ice-level directly in front of the stage. These are on-sale now for shows in the Admirals Concert Series.
The University of Wisconsin Marching Band will also put on a post-game performance, a Fourth Period if you will, when they make their annual visit to Panther Arena on Friday, January 27th, courtesy of Pegasus Partners. Before hitting the ice for the Fourth Period, the world renowned band will play from the stands before and during the game as well.
In addition, Wisconsin Legend Pat McCurdy will perform in the Jägermeister Shot and a Goal Bar before and after the game on Tuesday, December 27th.
The team also has a pair of unique bobblehead giveaways on tap this season beginning March 17th with one of Admirals Captain Cole Schneider and it commemorates his 500th career AHL point, an accomplishment he achieved earlier this season.
