For before or after the events you're there to watch. It should probably include at least a few of the following:

• "We Are The Champions" by Queen

• "World's Greatest" by R. Kelly

• "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns N Roses

• "London Bridge" by Fergie

• "Lose Yourself" by Eminem

• "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor

• "Bugler's Dream" by Leo Arnaud

• "One Shining Moment" by Luther Vandross

• The Jock Jams Megamix

...you're welcome.
