The Canadian Football League has announced that Imagine Dragons will rock the half-time show of the 102nd Grey Cup this November 30th at B.C. Place in Vancouver.
“This is a dynamic young band that reflects today’s CFL and the excitement that has always surrounded our biggest game and Canada’s biggest party, the Grey Cup,” says Sara Moore, the CFL’s Vice-President of Marketing and Events. “The millions who saw Imagine Dragons steal the show at this year’s Grammy Awards, where they won a Grammy for best rock performance, will know how exciting it is that they will command Canada’s biggest stage.
“We’re thrilled to be coming to the Grey Cup to entertain CFL fans in Vancouver and right across Canada,” says Imagine Dragons vocalist Dan Reynolds. “Canada has supported us from the beginning so it’s always exciting to go back.”
The Grey Cup is often the most watched television event of any kind in Canada. It will be broadcast live this year at 6 p.m. ET on TSN and RDS in Canada, and ESPN2 in the U.S.
