DETROIT -

Grab your light sabers! It’s Star Wars Night Friday at the Palace as the Detroit Pistons take on the Atlanta Hawks.

Billy Dee Williams -- or Lando Calrissian to fans of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi -- will sign autographs during “Pistons Power Hour” from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Palace North Pavilion as part of “Friday Night Out,” presented by Buffalo Wild Wings.

Lando will be joined by Chewbacca, R2D2, Boba Fett, Jedi Knights and -- from the dark side, Darth Vader and his Storm Troopers – throughout the evening.

The Pistons’ Star Wars-themed halftime show will also feature never before seen Star Wars video footage courtesy of Lucas Films and a performance from our Pistons Entertainment teams.

Star Wars-themed food and cocktails, like the Darth Burger and the Yodatini (Hint: It’s green!), will be available for purchase in the North Pavilion throughout the game.

Tickets for the “Star Wars Night” Pistons game are available at The Palace Ticket Store (248-377-0100), online at www.pistons.com and at all Ticketmaster Outlets or by calling 800-745-3000.
