The Dodgers are partnering with Interscope Records to present this special pre-game concert. This marks Thicke's first and, to date, only performance at a Major League Baseball stadium. He is a longtime Dodger fan and supporter, having attended games as recently as last season. Thicke's mega-hit "Blurred Lines" was a favorite in the Dodgers' clubhouse last season.
"Born and raised in Los Angeles, I have been a Dodger fan my whole life," said Robin Thicke. "Very excited to help bring in what we all hope will be a championship season."
"Robin and the Dodgers are a perfect combination," commented Steve Berman, Vice Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M. "A quintessentially LA musician meets a quintessentially LA team. We're thrilled to have this opportunity, and Robin is going to light up Chavez Ravine. Live. Breathe. Blu-rred Lines!!"
Robin Thicke will kick off his highly anticipated Spring 2014 North American tour on Friday, February 21 in Atlanta, Georgia at the Fox Theatre. For more information go to http://www.robinthicke.com/blurred-lines-tour.
