The NFL is making a very big deal of the season opener between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle on September 4th. And that they should! We’re the freakin’ champs, man!
The NFL kicks off its 95th season with a huge preshow at 4:30 PM our time on that Thursday with Grammy Award-winning singer, song-writer and producer Pharrell Williams (‘Happy’). Seattle-natives and Grammy Award-winning band Soundgarden open for him and both will perform live outside of CenturyLink Field in Seattle before the game.
Simulcast coverage of the 60-minute pregame show from Seattle will air from 4:30 – 5:30 PM PT on NBC and NFL Network. The live pregame broadcast also will be available via NFL Mobile from Verizon.
This is the 13th consecutive Kickoff celebration to start the season and the 10th time the NFL has saluted the Super Bowl champions with the opening game in their stadium on a Thursday in primetime.
We will have more details on exact location and how to see this free show (and get on TV) before the Hawks kick the Packers butts, shortly!
