Michaels performance will include a special medley of some of his biggest hits including Nothing but a Good Time, Unskinny Bop, and Talk Dirty To Me, which is guaranteed to keep the party moving and the energy at an all-time high. The game will start at 1:25 pacific time with the halftime party begins at approximately at 2:40pm.
Bret will then make an attempt to fly all the way back to the east coast for a late night after party performance following the Pittsburgh Steelers/ New England Patriots game if time allows. Michaels can also be seen in the 100 years of Football documentary airing on the NFL network and on October 22nd as a special guest on the Big Interview with Dan Rather on AXS TV.
Michaels is known to be a sports fanatic who truly loves football. He played quarterback and linebacker positions for both his junior high and high school football teams; and continues to play to this day. Since the beginning of his touring days he is infamously known to hold band verse crew football games in arena and truck stop parking lots across the country. This tradition continues while on his record breaking “UNBROKEN” world tour.
Bret Michaels states, “I love football, it was one of the biggest bonds between me and my father that we shared together right up to my dad’s recent passing. My father was a veteran and a die-hard Steelers fan.” Michaels continues, “The start of every season still gets me fired up, it’s a new beginning for every team. I am honored that I have been asked by both the Vikings and the Cardinals to perform at their opening games. Whether I’m watching or playing football with family and friends, tailgating, or performing at a game, I love the energy, competitiveness, and everything about it. All I know is a good game of football is great for the soul.”
