Reformed rockers Huey Lewis + THE NEWS, PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and Slash are kicking off the new baseball season in style by performing pre-game anthems at their favourite stadiums.

Lewis' group played live just before the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS' home opener against California rivals the LOS ANGELES DODGERS on Tuesday (05APR05) and the Presidents performed before the SEATTLE MARINERS' first game on Monday (04APR05).

But former GUNS 'N' ROSES star SLASH is sure to make baseball's rock highlights reel when he performs both the STAR SPANGLED BANNER and Canada's national anthem O CANADA when the TORONTO BLUE JAYS kick off their season at home today (08APR05).
