Las Vegas has been the most exciting hockey destination in North America during the 2017-2018 season, and the National Hockey League is seizing on that excitement heading into the postseason.

The NHL will open the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs with a free concert headlined by Grammy-nominated rapper Logic at Toshiba Plaza on April 11 at 5 p.m., right before the Vegas Golden Knights play the first playoff game in franchise history against the Los Angeles Kings at T-Mobile Arena at 7 p.m. Portions of the concert will air during the Pittsburgh-Philadelphia and Minnesota-Winnipeg game broadcasts.

Logic, who performed at the Hard Rock Hotel last summer as part of his Everybody’s Tour and just released his Bobby Tarantino II EP last month, scored a breakthrough with last year’s track “1-800-273-8255,” named after the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number. It received nominations for Song of the Year and Best Music Video at the 60th annual Grammy Awards, where Logic performed the song with Alessia Cara and Khalid. He’s preparing a new summer tour to launch in June and will perform at the Park Theater—which is also right next to T-Mobile Arena—on July 21.

The Wednesday concert at Toshiba Plaza will be free and open to the public with no ticket required.
