NEW YORK - The National Hockey League (NHL®) and GRAMMY Award-winning rock band Green Day will build on its multiyear partnership with the band's headlining performance at the 2020 Honda NHL® All-Star Game on Saturday, Jan. 25, in St. Louis. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will perform outside Enterprise Center shortly before they take the stage inside during the second intermission presented by Ticketmaster. The performance will be televised as part of the live All-Star Game broadcast on NBC in the U.S. and on CBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT.
The excitement outside Enterprise Center begins at 5 p.m. CT on 14th and Market Streets. Green Day's set will be free and open to the public.
Earlier this season, the NHL and Green Day announced a two-year, cross-platform partnership in which songs from the band's forthcoming thirteenth studio album, "Father Of All…" (Reprise/Warner Records), are featured in game highlights, tune-in campaigns and across the broadcast, digital and social platforms of the NHL and its television partners. The band's song, "Fire, Ready, Aim," has been featured on NHL on NBC broadcasts throughout the season. The new album will be released on February 7.
"Our partnership with Green Day goes to a whole new level with this performance," said Steve Mayer, NHL Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President. "This one will be unlike anything we have ever done at the League as we are featuring the band as they perform both inside and outside Enterprise Center. Throw in a few fireworks over the St. Louis Arch and we hope to put together a memorable production for hockey fans and fans of Green Day."
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 13 in Paris and will visit cities throughout Europe, the U.K. and North America. Additionally, the rock icons will perform a series of solo dates throughout Europe and Asia in support of their album, "Father Of All…" Tour dates are available here.
Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, Calif., Green Day is one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, with more than 70 million records sold worldwide and 10 billion cumulative audio/visual streams. Their 1994 breakout album Dookie, which sold over 10 million and achieved diamond status, is widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, catapulting a career-long run of #1 hit singles.
In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera American Idiot which captured the nation's attention, selling more than 7 million copies in the U.S. alone and taking home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Mojo declared "It's exhilarating stuff, the kind of record that sets new parameters as to what is possible from a punk rock'n'roll band in the 21st century." In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway to critical and commercial acclaim.
All fans attending the performance will be required to go through metal detectors upon entry into the event area starting at 3 p.m. CT, and all bags will be subject to search.
