ST. LOUIS - Five-time Grammy award-winning rock band Green Day will perform live at the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Game in St. Louis on Jan. 25.
The NHL and Green Day announced a two-year, cross-platform and promotional partnership on Monday, which included news of their headline performance in St. Louis during All-Star Weekend.
"Green Day is the perfect band for the NHL," said Steve Mayer, the NHL's Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President. "Their music fits so perfectly with the energy, speed and power that we witness on the ice each and every night."
To kick off the partnership, fans will get a preview of Green Day's song "Fire, Ready, Aim" that will serve as NBC Sports Network's Wednesday Night Hockey theme song for the 2019-20 season.
Green Day started in 1986 in Berkeley, CA and since has been one of the world's best-selling bands of all time. In 1994, the band's debut album "Dookie" sold over 10 million units. Since then, the band has had a career-long run of #1 hit singles.
Green Day's thirteenth studio album, "Father Of All..." is set to be released on Feb. 20, 2020.
