Kid Rock, Maroon 5 Among Bands Performing at NFL’s Season-Opening Concert Before Packers-Saints Game

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum and Maroon 5 will play the "NFL Kickoff 2011" concert outside Lambeau Field before the Green Bay Packers' Sept. 8 opener against the New Orleans Saints.

The concert will take place on a stage adjacent to Lambeau Field, continuing the NFL's recent tradition of big-name musical acts playing before the first game of the season. Dave Matthews Band, Taylor Swift and Harry Connick Jr. performed in New Orleans last year.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. EDT, an hour before kickoff, and will be shown on NBC's pregame show and on the NFL Network.
