Shaquille O’Neal to Appear as a Guest Conductor During the Boston Pops’ Holiday Concert


Shaquille O'Neal is truly embracing the life of a Bostonian.

One of the most revered holiday traditions in the city is attending a performance of the Holiday Pops, led by the Boston Pops' longtime conductor Keith Lockhart.

On Monday, however, the audience will see a special appearance by a guest conductor, according to The Associated Press. Shaq will climb the podium in a tailcoat and a white tie and lead the orchestra in one of the Pops' most popular renditions, Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride."

The Celtics' center has truly immersed himself in the city culture since his arrival this summer. From posing as a statue in Harvard Square, to handing out toys as Shaq-a-Claus, you never quite know what O'Neal will come up with next.
