DETROIT (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Fox Theatre is paying tribute to the Detroit Red Wings, who are appearing in their 17th consecutive Stanley Cup playoff appearance by switching their 75- foot illuminated tower sign on top of the Fox Theatre building from its standard multi-color display to all red on Thursday, April 10, when the Detroit Red Wings take on the Nashville Predators at Joe Louis Arena.
"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 â€˜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 Theatre 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 75-foot sign will run completely in the color red in support of it's 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. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
