DJ Khaled and The Kid LAROI are headed to the NHL Stanley Cup Final — but the duo won’t be lacing up their skates (although we would love to see Khaled on the ice).

The NHL tapped Miami resident DJ Khaled and the “Stay” hitmaker to headline the Stanley Cup Concert Series presented by BODYARMOR heading into games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Florida Panthers and Edmonton Oilers.

The Kid LAROI will break the ice with a performance prior to game 1 on Saturday night (June 8), while the We the Best mogul is set to helm Monday night’s outing in Sunrise, Florida.


Both concerts will be open to the public with no game ticket required for attendees. The shows will kick off at 6 p.m. ET in Lot C2 outside Amerant Bank Arena before the 8 p.m. ET puck drop inside.

Portions of both performances from Khaled and LAROI will be utilized as part of the Stanley Cup Final game broadcasts. In addition to the concert series, fans should be on the lookout for more artist performances and special guests.

Next week will be a busy one for Khaled. In addition to performing at the Stanley Cup, he’s hosting his second annual We The Best Foundation Jordan Golf Classic on June 13, which will feature professional golfers like Bubba Watson and athletes such as Odell Beckham Jr. playing in Miami.

As for The Kid LAROI, he’s currently on the road for his The First Time Tour, which hits Atlanta on Friday (June 7) before the Aussie takes over the Stanley Cup Concert Series on Saturday. The grind doesn’t stop, as he’ll stay in Florida for a pair of shows in Tampa Bay and Miami.
