I’m pretty sure you haven’t forgotten, but if you’re on the fence about heading down to Cesar Chavez Park in Downtown Sacramento tonight for the Long Live the Kings rally, don’t be. This is something you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Seriously, so many people have worked so hard to put this together in such a quick amount of time – if you have the ability to be there, do so.
Many current and former Sacramento King players are expected to attend, a short list which includes Chris Webber, Mitch Richmond, Scott Pollard, Bobby Jackson, Tyreke Evans, Isaiah Thomas and there might be a few other surprises who show up as well.
The party (gates open at 5PM tonight) will be complete with musical acts and entertainment as well:
Acclaimed father-son pair Chord and Paul Overstreet will headline the celebration’s musical acts, as the star of the hit TV series “Glee” and the renowned country singer/songwriter perform a memorable music set, including the Grammy-winning single “Forever and Ever, Amen”.
“When my friends from the Kings called and told me about the Long Live The Kings Rally, I couldn’t say no,” said NSAI Hall of Famer Paul Overstreet. “I have a great history in Sacramento, and it’s one of my favorite cities to perform. Great fans and, considering the theme of ‘1985-Forever’, I can’t wait to play ‘Forever and Ever, Amen’. It’s going to be an amazing night. Long live the Sacramento Kings!”
The evening will also feature local rapper Alex Johnson’s anthem “NBA” and Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon performing “Love Song.”
Nationally-recognized performance painter and the River City’s own David Garibaldi will be accompanied by Kings Breakers in another epic fusion of music and art.
Seriously, don’t hesitate – get down to Cesar Chavez Park and enjoy the spectacle that will be the Long Live the Kings rally.
Celebrate your city, your team, your fellow fans.
If you can’t be there, you’ll be able to check out the festivities from afar as Kings.com is streaming the event but I HIGHLY suggest being in attendance if you can – it’ll be a once in a lifetime event.
