Static has performed at the annual Suns & Stars Gala, headlined the NBA All-Star Block Party, the Waste Management Open’s Bird’s Nest and the W Hotel grand opening. The band’s image, soul, excitement and synergy define entertainment as one of the hottest high-energy dance bands in Arizona.

Fans attending the game are encouraged to join the Suns for a pre-game party in the APS Gorilla’s Greenhouse upon arena doors opening at 5:30 p.m. The Gorilla, along with members of the Suns Dancers and APS Solar Squad will be on hand to distribute New Year’s Eve party hats and noise makers to the first 500 fans in attendance.

The APS Gorilla’s Greenhouse is 6,400 square feet of interactive fun for kids and families located on the west side of the 200 Level concourse. This family themed area includes two slides, a 25-foot long zip line, basketball hoops set at various heights, a playground and 30 arcade games.

All ticket holders are invited to continue the party on the Suns main court for one hour following the game. In-arena food and beverage concessions will remain open through the New Year’s Eve celebration.

This program allows consumers who purchase a ticket to an event at US Airways Center to ride METRO light rail at no additional cost, on the day of the event for four hours prior to the start of the event, through the end of the transit day.
