Beatlemania swept the nation. The Sound of Music broke records in movie theaters. The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson revolutionized the late night talk show scene. The 60s was a unique decade for American popular culture, politics and fashion, in many respects shaping the nation for the remainder of the 20th century. The 60s was one of the most influential decades in American history, and this weekend at the Comcast Arena will be a blast from the past.
February 12 is “60s Night” at the Comcast Arena, as the Washington Stealth take on the Edmonton Rush. The evening will feature music of the 60s all night long and great prizes, including top 60s music, movies, Beatles Rockband and more, awarded to the fans dressed up in their “groovy” 60s costumes. Following the game, fans of all ages are invited to join Stealth players and staff in the Ice Box for a performance by The Pop Offs, a local band covering songs from the 60s.
The event will also feature the premiere of “Club 67”, a nightclub in the Comcast Arena inspired by the Stealth’s #67, Jeff Zywciki. For just $20, fans will receive a unique game experience, including two hours of open bar prior to the game and a chance to meet Zywicki in person.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner as well. It’s only fitting that on a night centered around a decade when “free love” reigned supreme, there will be an opportunity for fans to show their love for that special someone. Fans will be able to purchase roses for their loved ones for a special price during the game. Roses can be presented by the Stealth’s loveable mascot, Bomber, along with the Bombshells during the game.
