Announcing the November 17 Smashville Express to Knoxville

CLICK HERE to buy tickets!

In December 2010, we invaded Atlanta with 70 Predator fans. In April 2011, we took St. Louis with 65 citizens of Smashville. Last October, we took the entire Midwest.

This time, we’re tackling Rocky Top.

On November 17th, it’s Nashville Predators Night in Knoxville, Tennessee, as the Knoxville Ice Bears host the Mississippi RiverKings, and you can be there! The Ice Bears will be wearing Predators-themed jerseys and there will be other familiar Predators-themed happenings around the Knoxville Coliseum.

We know life has been hard without professional hockey in Nashville…and that’s why we decided to do something about it!

Cellblock 303, along with and Penalty Box Radio, has teamed up with the Nashville Predators to present the Smashville Express.

For the total sum of $25 you will receive:

– Round trip transportation from Bridgestone Arena to Knoxville and back.
– One (1) ticket to the November 17th Ice Bears vs. RiverKings game.
– Parking in the Bridgestone Arena garage.
– Giveaways!
– Hockey!

      If we do, it starts a slippery slope of exceptions. Due to the strict schedule, we’re sticking with what’s announced.

    I wanted to thank all the Pred’s fans who made the trip to Knoxville to watch their Ice Bears overcome an early deficit to arise victorious in the end. We enjoyed hearing Cellblock 303’s contributions. Glad to hear a few of you got a jersey out of it as well. We look forward to seeing you again at another hockey matchup soon.
