Detroit Pistons Bring Star Wars Night to The Palace Friday, Jan. 4

“Star Wars Night” is back at The Palace of Auburn Hills this Friday, Jan. 4 when the Detroit Pistons play the Atlanta Hawks at 7:30 p.m.!

Billy Dee Williams – or Lando Calrissian to fans of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi – will sign autographs during “Pistons Power Hour” from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Palace North Pavilion as part of “Friday Night Out,” presented by Buffalo Wild Wings.

Lando will be joined by Chewbacca, R2-D2, Boba Fett, Jedi Knights and – from the dark side, Darth Vader and his Storm Troopers – throughout the evening. The Pistons’ Star Wars-themed halftime show will also feature Star Wars video footage courtesy of Lucasfilm and a performance from our Pistons Entertainment teams.

Star Wars-themed food and cocktails, like the Darth Burger and the Yodatini (Hint: It’s green!), will be available for purchase in the North Pavilion throughout the game.

The Pistons Locker Room Store is also offering 30% off all Adidas jerseys and Court apparel.

Fans should be sure pick up the free Pistons’ interactive Action Guide game program that includes a souvenir Pistons poster, chances to win prizes each quarter and discounts on concessions and merchandise throughout the game.
