Future will perform at Atlanta Hawks game against the Dallas Mavericks

Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum-selling, hip-hop superstar Future will be the first musical act to play halftime at an Atlanta Hawks game in the all-new State Farm Arena on Wed. Oct. 24.  It was announced on V-103’s The Big Tigger Show, that Future will take the court both mid- and postgame at the Hawks home opener, which is presented by State Farm.  Known for hits like “Jumpman”, “Same Damn Time” and “Mask Off”, the Atlanta-born performer will also join the Hawks in hosting 100 guests from his Freewishes Foundation for the nationally-televised game versus the Dallas Mavericks.

“It’s exciting to be part of the launching of the new season and new home of The Atlanta Hawks, the State Farm Arena,” said Future. “It makes me proud to see the cultural growth happening in the ATL.”

As a part of the historic night, the franchise is also hosting 100 guests from Future’s Freewishes Foundation, whose “mission is to deliver a message of hope, perseverance, and resilience to [the] community by lending support and making dreams come alive.”  The Hawks will recognize the non-profit for the important work that it is doing in the Atlanta community to make a difference in the lives of others since it was co-founded by Future, his mother Stephanie Jester and sister Tia Wilburn-Anderson.
