The Canadian Football League kicked off Grey Cup month by announcing Tuesday that multi-platinum rockers Fall Out Boy will headline the Nissan Titan Halftime Show at the 103rd Grey Cup Presented by Shaw, airing Sunday, Nov. 29 on TSN and RDS, live from Investors Group Field in Winnipeg.
Fall Out Boy features Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums). The band released their sixth studio album, American Beauty/American Psycho, in January 2015 to instant acclaim. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums Chart, and features lead single “Centuries,” which has been certified four times platinum by the RIAA.
“We’re honoured the CFL invited us to perform during one of the country’s most monumental events,” said Pete Wentz, bassist, Fall Out Boy. “Plus it’s pretty rad we get to watch the game in person.”
The Sirius XM Kickoff Show is highlighted by Canadian country music star Dean Brody. A 2014 Juno Award winner and 10-time CCMA Award-winning recording artist, Brody’s most recent album Gypsy Road has earned him his second platinum single, “Bring Down The House.”
Prior to kickoff at the 103rd GREY CUP Presented by Shaw, the Canadian national anthem will be performed by Canadian singer-songwriter Bobby Bazini. The two-time Juno Award nominee will perform the anthems in both French and English.
