Alt-pop trio AJR will be going from the arena stage to the ice rink in February. The platinum-selling band will be playing live at the NHL Stadium Series at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, February 18. The performance will take place at intermission of the divisional game between in-state rivals the New York Rangers and the New York Islanders.

AJR, born and raised New Yorkers who recently released their fifth studio album, The Maybe Man, are set to headline NYC’s iconic Madison Square Garden on the The Maybe Man Tour this summer.

“Having grown up in New York City, it’s a huge honor to play at the iconic MetLife Stadium for Rangers and Islanders fans,” said AJR. “As hockey fans, we know how special outdoor games are and we can’t wait to be part of one!”

The game will be broadcast live at 3pm ET on ABC and ESPN+ in the U.S. and on SN and TVAS in Canada. AJR’s performance will be featured in the broadcast.

AJR make the kind of music that encourages you to keep going. For as much as their multi-dimensional soundscapes, theatrical delivery, and big screen-worthy vision provide an escape, the multi-platinum, chart-topping trio of brothers—Adam (vocals/bass), Jack (vocals/guitar), and Ryan Met (guitar/piano/vocals)—also manage to intimately empathize with listeners everywhere. The band constructed an inimitable and immersive world soundtracked by a truly alternative vision for pop. Beyond 5 billion streams and counting, the group notched a string of seismic smashes, including “Bang!” (3x-platinum) and “Weak” (3x-platinum), “Burn The House Down” (2x-platinum), and “100 Bad Days” (platinum), “Sober Up” (platinum), and “I’m Ready” (platinum).

Following their platinum breakout album The Click (2017), the boys consecutively crashed the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 with Neotheater (2019) and OK Orchestra (2021). Traveling around the globe with their own version of the Greatest Show on Earth, they’ve packed arenas on multiple continents, selling nearly 1 million tickets thus far. In addition to earning widespread acclaim, they’ve ignited late-night television and are composing the score for Harold & the Purple Crayon on Broadway.

Their first release through Mercury Records/Republic Records, The Maybe Man, might just be their most identifiable body of work yet. In true AJR fashion, they came up with a larger-than-life way to explain the existential crisis of growing up and also process and deal with their father’s passing.
