Detroit's Fox Theatre Tower to Shine Red Throughout Red Wings Playoff Run PDF Print E-mail

Fox Tower in RedThe Detroit Red Wings are entering their 17th consecutive Stanley Cup playoff appearance, and to help cheer the team to victory, the Fabulous Fox Theatre tower sign will shine red during the entire playoff run, which begins Thursday, April 10 when the Red Wings take on the Nashville Predators. The tower has switched from its standard multi-color display to all red.

"No other team in major professional sports has a longer playoff streak," said Christopher Ilitch, president and CEO of Ilitch Holdings, Inc. "With such an amazing track record, we really have something to be proud about and we want to show that 'we are in!' The Red Wings need all fans to show their colors to give the team an edge in this year's playoffs."

The Fox tower sign, originally restored and unveiled in January 2006 in anticipation of Super Bowl XL, can be computer programmed to perform over a million different color and light variations. The 18-foot sign will run completely in the color red in support of its hometown Red Wings team. The LED light tubes used to light the tower use less than half the power of an incandescent bulb and can last 10 years.

The Detroit Red Wings will take on the Nashville Predators on Thursday, April 10 at a special start time of 7 p.m. at Joe Louis Arena in the Opening Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Game 2 will be held at the Joe at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 12.
