The American alt rock band will play the mid-championship set at BC Place on November 30, 2014.

American rock band Imagine Dragons will play the Grey Cup halftime show this November, when Canada’s footballing championship takes place at Vancouver’s BC Place.

The Grey Cup will be held on November 30.

“We’re thrilled to be coming to the Grey Cup to entertain CFL fans in Vancouver and right across Canada,” said Dan Reynolds, lead singer of Imagine Dragons (Canadian Press/Surrey Leader).

“Canada has supported us from the beginning so it’s always exciting to go back.”

Last year, Hedley and The Sheepdogs played the halftime show for the Grey Cup in Regina, Saskatchewan. The last time the Grey Cup was held in Vancouver (in 2011) the show was hosted Nickelback.

Halftime shows have been going on at the Cup since 1992, when it was held in Toronto’s SkyDome and the mid-game set was performed by Dan Hill and Celine Dion.
