Hundreds of people in blue and gold, reminiscent of the Golden State Warriors’ last championship parade, started lining up outside Steph Curry’s pop-up store in Old Oakland at 4 a.m. on Thursday. 

But this was for a different kind of celebration. Those waiting on Broadway hoped for a chance to score free tickets to a concert celebrating the Warriors’ time in Oakland. The show also heralds the introduction of the Curry 6 signature shoe made by Under Armour.

The shoe will be the athlete’s first to come in girls’ sizes.

The Friday night concert at Oakland’s historic Fox Theater features Bay Area acts like E-40, P-Lo, Mistah FAB and Sweety. But not just anyone can attend: you have to show I.D. proving you’re a high school or college student, and only the first 225 people in line today get in for free.

Curry announced the concert as an appreciation for the team’s years in Oakland, before they move from Oracle Arena to the new Chase Center in San Francisco, which is currently under construction, for the 2019-20 season.

The fans are clinging to every last minute of claiming the Warriors as Oakland’s own, but many said that they’re grateful for one last chance to party. “You know, Oracle brings with it so many memories… and all the championships they’ve won here,” said one fan. “It’s definitely a reason to celebrate, and it is a little bit bittersweet.”

This isn’t Curry’s first foray into entertainment. He’s currently executive producing a faith-based drama that hits theaters this April.
