The Canadian Football League (CFL) has confirmed that Green Day, one of the pillars of modern punk rock, will be the centerpiece of the Twisted Tea Grey Cup Halftime Show. The event will occur during the 110th Grey Cup game at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton on November 19, with a kickoff time of 6 p.m. ET.
Green Day themselves have signaled their enthusiasm, promising to make it an unforgettable night in the history of the CFL. Known for their groundbreaking 1994 album ‘Dookie,’ Green Day has remained a potent force in the punk rock genre. Their credentials include over 75 million records sold, 5 GRAMMY Awards, and an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The association between Twisted Tea and the Grey Cup extends into its third year, an alliance that has garnered positive reactions from CFL fans across Canada. Mike Masters of Moosehead Breweries LTD, which handles Twisted Tea’s marketing and distribution in Canada, expressed eagerness to witness what Green Day will bring to the Halftime Show.
The 110th Grey Cup event goes beyond the gridiron. It serves as the cornerstone of a larger Grey Cup Festival, which is set to offer over 40 different events aimed at a broad audience that includes football aficionados, music enthusiasts, athletes, and families. Community organizations like Sonic Unyon, Around the Bay, and Hamilton Santa Claus Parade are on board to contribute.
Titled the ‘Built in the Hammer Grey Cup Music Festival,’ the four-day festivity will kick off on November 16. The lineup includes various free and ticketed events, such as Thursday night at OLG Stage in Niagara Falls and Friday night featuring Carrie Underwood at FirstOntario Centre. The festival grounds will also host Fan Central on James St., spotlighting an array of live music curated by ‘SuperCrawl,’ Hamilton’s renowned arts and indie music event.
The festival is centralized in Downtown Hamilton, ensuring that all venues and events are within walking distance. Two of the scheduled events will even take place in Niagara Falls, making this Grey Cup the first to embrace a regional approach.
Those interested in attending the 110th Grey Cup can purchase tickets via Ticketmaster. For viewers unable to attend in person, the game and Green Day’s Halftime Show will be broadcast live on TSN and RDS, Canada’s home for CFL content. An international stream is also available through CFL+.
