W. Scott Bailey
In addition to a spectacular theatrical opening inside the new SBC Center Nov. 1, Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SS&E) officials say there will be plenty of opening night festivities outside the new home of the Spurs.
According to SS&E officials, a parade of Hollywood stars will walk the red carpet on their way to the Spurs' regular season home opener against the Toronto Raptors.
The list of entertainers expected to attend the Spurs' 30th-anniversary debut and the grand opening of Bexar County's new 18,500-seat arena includes George Lopez of the "George Lopez Show," Esai Morales of NYPD Blue," Dana Devon of "Extra," Jesse Borego of "Fame" and "Con-Air" and "Dawson's Creek" star Jensen Ackles. Other stars expected to attend the SBC Center opening and the Spurs' regular season debut are John Salley of Fox Sports Net's "Best Damn Sports Show Period" and Melissa Joan Hart from "Sabrina the Teenage Witch."
These and other actors from Los Angeles and New York are scheduled to appear on the red carpet at the East entrance to SBC Center beginning at 6:30 p.m. The parade of stars will be preceded by an elaborate fireworks show set to begin approximately 15 minutes prior.
