Green Day are set to headline the 10th NFL Honors, an annual awards ceremony that honors the biggest stars of the NFL season and held the night before the Super Bowl.
“Fired up to finally be back on stage!” the band tweeted.
The event will air on Saturday, February 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS with Steve Harvey hosting.
“With the unprecedented nature of this year, we are excited to bring the 10th annual NFL Honors show to life in a unique format,” Mark Quenzel, NFL Senior Vice President of Programming and Production, said via the press release.
He added, “We look forward to producing an unforgettable show that will celebrate the game and its brightest stars in an entertaining fashion.”
Green Day released their most recent album Father of All… on February 7, 2020, through Reprise Records.
The band were set to embark on on the Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer to promote the album. Initially planned for March 2020, the tour was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Recently, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo confirmed that the Hella Mega tour is still on. Green Day’s website still lists dates with Weezer and Fall Out Boy beginning this June.
“My manager just told me yesterday that the U.S. promoter is still saying it’s gonna happen,” Cuomo recently told NME. “That could change, but I’m not making any other plans for the summer.”
Meanwhile, The Weeknd is set to perform at this year’s Super Bowl halftime ceremony. Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will sing the National Anthem, while H.E.R. will perform “America the Beautiful.”
