Exploria Stadium was both rocking and rolling Wednesday night ahead of Orlando City's MLS match against the struggling Sporting Kansas City.
Between Orlando, New England revolution, Montreal Impact and Toronto FC, the eighth spot in the East seems to be a complete toss-up. With the Lions in the middle of the pack for the hunt for the coveted final spot in the Eastern Conference MLS Playoffs, every game throughout the second half of the season will be a must-win.
To the delight of the packed Exploria Stadium, Wednesday's match did in fact end in a win. Thanks to a Tesho Akindele goal in the first half, the Lions defeated Sporting KC 1-0.
While the crowd was pleased with the Lions' performance on the field, plenty of attention was drawn to another group off the field Wednesday night.
Check out who was in the house to cheer on Orlando City.

The world-famous Blue Man Group showed up for Orlando City SC's first-ever Neon Night. According to the club, Neon Night is inspired by "Our Purple DNA and by our iconic, black-lit players' tunnel..."
Kudos to Orlando City for this awesome idea to sue the iconic trio for the special occasion. If anyone knows how to use crazy lights to enhance even crazier sounds, it's the Blue Man Group.
Here is the group's performance within Orlando City's black-lit tunnel.
