Performance is part of a two year pact between the band and the National Hockey League

The outdoor performance is free to the public and will begin at 5 pm CT on 14th an Market Streets. The indoor performance will be televised as part of the All-Star game broadcast on NBC in the US and CBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers’ appearance is part of a two-year, cross-platform marketing and promotional partnership between the band and the National Hockey League. Songs from Green Day’s Father Of All… are featured in NHL game highlights, broadcast bumpers, tune-in campaigns, and in-arena jumbotron content created and distributed by the NHL, its teams and television partners NBC Sports Group, Sportsnet and TVA Sports across their respective broadcast, digital and social platforms throughout the 2019/2020 season.
“Green Day is the perfect band for the NHL. Their music fits so perfectly with the energy, speed and power that we witness on the ice and each and every night,” states NHL Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President Steve Mayer on the band’s two-year pact. “We are so excited to start this partnership with the NBC Sports open. It was so much fun to shoot and we think our fans will love it.”
“This NHL season is hereby known as LOUD season…where the toughest athletes to ever lace up a pair of skates meet the baddest rock band on the planet,” shares the band. “So turn up the volume on your TV sets, fire, ready, aim and enjoy the ride.”
Green Day will embark on a global stadium tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer. The Hella Mega Tour presented by Harley-Davidson kicks off June 13th in Paris and will visit cities throughout Europe, the U.K. and North America.
