Die hard Oakland Raiders fan, Ice Cube, will entertain fans pregame inside O.co Coliseum. Ice Cube's performance will include the anthem he wrote for the Raiders, as part of the Pepsi NFL Anthems* program which launched earlier this month to energize fans for the 2012 season.
Gene Simmons, of the legendary rock band KISS, will perform the National Anthem before the Raiders host the Chargers on September 10.
In addition to these exhilarating pregame moments, fans entering the stadium at least an hour before kickoff will have the opportunity to win some unique, exclusive prizes such as field passes, locker room tours, memorabilia autographed by Hall of Famers, Raider Legends and current players, the latest in merchandise, Raider Image gift cards, and more.
