Two worlds are colliding once again and we're loving it. The Nick Nurse & Arkells bromance lives on as the band gets pointers from the Raptors' head coach for their upcoming concert in a hilarious video. This familiar pairing is so wholesome and we hope it never ends.

On February 28, the band announced that they would be coming back to Hamilton for their summer concert, The Rally, and shared an amazing video to go with it.

Of course, no concert announcement from the band would be truly complete without an assist from the Raptors' head coach after their whirlwind friendship.

In the video, Nurse gave the band some pre-show pointers to get them ready for their big concert on June 20.

"I know a thing or two about delivering on the big stage," Nurse said while showing off his championship ring. "This is a whole other arena."

However, it's actually a stadium, as frontman Max Kerman pointed out.

While in front of a whiteboard with a drawing of the stage on it, Nurse even told the band what song they should play during their set.

"Did you stay up till three a.m. making laminated, water-proof setlists?"

Of course, nobody did. Who would?

"Well I did, I've got them for everybody," Nurse said.

The video ends with the band and Nurse putting their fists up in the air together and the championship ring makes yet another appearance.

The band is bringing back The Rally to Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton on June 20 and it'll be a starstudded event.

The concert will have special guests Bleachers, K.Flay and Haviah Mighty but there's one name, in particular, that was missing.

While Nurse has taken to the stage with the band before, he's not on the setlist, so we can only hope that he makes another surprise appearance with them during the show. 

The band's announcement video comes just a day after the coach told reporters that he would be in the studio with the band for rehearsals. 

"I'm working on four songs right now, I'm getting ready to have a little performance actually. March 11, I'm having a kick-off for my foundation, the Nick Nurse foundation, in support of music programs for kids around the Toronto area," he told CityNews.

He's working on those four songs with Arkells.

Back in June 2019, Nurse joined Arkells at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto for a special performance where he played guitar during a Stevie Wonder song.

The crowd understandably went nuts when the head coach appeared on stage.

From there, the bromance was truly born.

Here's hoping this amazing friendship never ends and we continue to get more hilarious moments from these guys!
