Other entertainment includes singer-actress Michelle Williams, the cast of Jersey Boys, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, the FDNY Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, actor Marin Mazzie, Beatles tribute band Strawberry Fields and the NYPD Pipes and Drums.

The NHL takes over Yankee Stadium starting Jan. 26 when the Devils will host the Rangers, and three days later when the Islanders face the Rangers.

Green, who stars on NBC's "The Voice" and is a five-time Grammy Award winner, will perform on Jan. 29 before the game and during the first intermission. Williams will sing the National Anthem that night and Strawberry Fields will perform during the second intermission. The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Sunday, Jersey Boys will perform pregame, and the FDNY Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, and the NYPD Pipes and Drums will play as the Rangers and Devils are introduced. Mazzie will perform the National Anthem, and Southside Johnny and Asbury Jukes is the first intermission entertainment.

These are the first hockey games Yankee Stadium will host.

"Our goal with the NHL Stadium Series games is to give our fans an unforgettable experience," NHL Executive VP of Events Don Renzulli said in a release. "We’re very excited about the entertainment line-up for our twin bill at Yankee Stadium, which celebrates the City of New York and the entire Metropolitan area, and pays homage to the teams, the venue, and our fans.”
