CFL press release

Since the meteoric success of their 1994 album Dookie, Green Day have claimed their place as the indisputable trailblazers of punk rock. With more than 75 million records sold, 5 GRAMMY Awards, and a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Green Day have remained at the forefront of the punk rock scene and inspired countless new artists. From the genre-defining American Idiot to selling out stadiums around the Globe, Green Day sole-handedly keeps punk rock alive while providing razor-sharp social commentary.

The 110th Grey Cup marks the third year in which Twisted Tea – the Official ‘Ready-to-drink’ beverage of the CFL and Grey Cup – has perfectly paired music and sport at the Grey Cup to the delight of Canadian football fans from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

“Like so many Canadians, we have the Grey Cup circled in our calendars every year,” said Mike Masters of Moosehead Breweries LTD, which markets and distributes Twisted Tea in Canada. “Presenting the Twisted Tea Grey Cup Halftime Show and playing a part in entertaining and exciting so many people is a dream come true. We can’t wait to see what Green Day has in-store for Hamilton.”

The 110th Grey Cup will be played in Hamilton at Tim Hortons Field on Sunday, November 19 with kickoff slated for 6 p.m. ET. The nation’s largest single-day sporting event and Green Day’s performance for the Twisted Tea Grey Cup Halftime Show will be broadcast live across the nation on TSN and RDS – Canada’s home of the CFL. The Grey Cup will also be available live for viewers outside of Canada through CFL+. A limited number of tickets for the 110th Grey Cup game are available at Ticketmaster.
