The excitement of the new baseball season always starts to build this time of year. But when I saw the theme nights that the St. Louis Cardinals have planned for 2019, my excitement grew even more.

Hot dogs, beer, and baseball are all great. But the theme nights--especially at Busch Stadium--add so much to the game atmosphere. I love the theme nights. And there is one that I will definitely not be missing in 2019: Boy Band Night!

Boy Band Night is scheduled for Friday, April 19 against the Mets. They way the marketing department describe the night is unique.

Calling all Summer Girls and Boyz (or) Men!  The offseason was Tearin’ Up Our Hearts, but the Birds are back, alright!  MMMbop to a special pregame performance by The Boy Band Night on the Altec Lansing Stage in Budweiser Terrace—and since we know you want it All or Nothing at all, make sure to buy a special Theme Ticket to receive an exclusive Cardinals Boy Band t-shirt.  There’s only One Direction to go—straight to the ballpark for Boy Band Night!

I'm gonna have to get me one of those N*SYNC-inspired t-shirts. I count seven boy band songs or names of groups in this promo (very clever). Other theme nights this year include Game of Thrones (also in April), Elvis, Star Wars, and Margaritaville Night ( wonder if there is a limit). Theme tickets are on sale now!
