Soundgarden to play free show before Seahawks opener

121106-soundgarden-20Odds are you were already ecstatic about the Seattle Seahawks’ 2014 regular season opener against the Green Bay Packers but this should make it 100 times better.

During the first quarter of Sunday’s Pro Football Hall of Fame game between the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio, the NFL announced a couple more reasons for the loudest fans in the league to be even louder!

Seattle’s own Grammy Award-winning rock band Soundgarden are set to kick off a free event with simulcast coverage of the 60-minute pregame show airing from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. PT on NBC and NFL Network.

Grammy Award-winning singer, song-writer, rapper, and record producer Pharrell Williams will perform after Soundgarden live outside Seattle’s CenturyLink Field on Thursday, Sept. 4 to help kick off the NFL’s 95th season. The celebration marks the 10th ceremony honoring the defending Super Bowl champions with the League’s opening game in their stadium on primetime.

Doors to CenturyLink Field’s North Plaza open at 2:30 p.m. PT with the performance to take place prior to the matchup between the Seahawks and Packers.

Then, inside the loudest venue in sports, award-winning vocalist Ariana Grande will sing the National Anthem before the two teams take the field for a 5:30 p.m. PT kickoff in front of a national television audience on NBC.
