LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Allegiant Stadium will host some of the top names in the music industry as well as the NFL when the Las Vegas Raiders (5-3) take on the Kansas City Chiefs (5-4) at home on Sunday.
Multi-platinum singer Tinashe will perform the national anthem to open the game, which will feature a halftime performance by electronic music producer and DJ Marshmello. Tinashe is a "lifelong fan of the Silver and Black," according to the Raiders, and is gearing up to release a new multi-track compilation later this month. Marshmello is one of the top streamed artists in the world with more than 45 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Las Vegans may also know him from his recent summer residency at the Wynn.
Sunday's game will be the first at home for the Raiders after several weeks of turmoil with the arrest of now-former wide receiver Henry Ruggs III for felony DUI resulting in death and the dismissal of cornerback Damon Arnette after video posted online showed him making threats with a gun.
In the meantime, the Raiders signed veteran NFL wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who'll make his debut with the team on Sunday.
