Arkells named halftime performers for this year's Grey Cup in Hamilton

The Canadian rock band was announced as the halftime performers for this year's Grey Cup on Friday night. Lead singer Max Kerman said that he and his bandmates have been preparing for the intermission show on Dec. 12 by watching game tape.

It will be the first Grey Cup in two years as the COVID-19 pandemic forced the CFL to skip the 2020 season. It's also the first time the championship game has been held in Hamilton in 25 years. The southern Ontario city last hosted the Grey Cup in 1996 at Ivor Wynne Stadium.
