TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Larry Fitzgerald, world traveler and star wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, is adding an unusual line to his resume.

Next Thursday, he will be the conductor for the performance of the national anthem on opening night for the Phoenix Symphony.

Fitzgerald tweeted on Thursday that he was going to be conducting the symphony and asked "Anybody have any tips for me?"

Fitzgerald, who holds virtually every Cardinals franchise receiving record, has traveled to more than 75 countries, many of them to promote charities. His team plays at New England on Sunday.
