Ice Installed At Little Caesars Arena

Ice is now in place at the new Little Caesars Arena in downtown Detroit.  

The Detroit Red Wings posted photos of the ice on social media, showing the Hockeytown logo will remain at center ice as it was at Joe Louis Arena.  The first preseason game at the new stadium for the Red Wings is set for September 23 against the Boston Bruins, with the regular season opener on October 5 against the Minnesota Wild.

A series of events will be held to mark the opening of Little Caesars Arena in Detroit next month.

Olympia Entertainment announced they will have public tours and other programs the week of September 5th through the 10th.

Planned events include the ribbon cutting ceremony on September 5th and the Charity Premiere on Friday September 8th that will raise money for Ilitch Charities which is a non-profit organization.  

The free tour for the public is on September 9th and venue will officially open on September 12th when Kid Rock plays the first of six shows.
