Green Day to Play New York Jets Opening Game
Mon, 16 Aug 2010 13:22:27
The New York Jets are known as Gang Green and they will get a little greener when they play their regular-season home opener on September 13. That's because Green Day are set to perform at the even that night. The Jets are set to face the Baltimore Ravens in the Monday night game at New Meadowlands Stadium. This brand new facility is right around the corner from my house, but I am not a fan of the Jets or the Giants, because I am from Philly, but I still think it's cool that Green Day will christen the stadium with their punk rock anthem.
Green Day will perform "Last of the American Girls" with the Broadway cast of the Tony Award-winning rock musical American Idiot. The halftime show will finish with fireworks.
Guitarist Slash and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger will play during a tailgate concert outside the stadium. Scherzinger will sing the national anthem.
What band would you love to see play at your favorite football team's opening home game?
