Broadway Musical Rock of Ages to headline New Era Pinstripe Bowl halftime show

Cast members from the five-time Tony-nominated Broadway musical Rock of Ages will perform on the field at Yankee Stadium during halftime of the inaugural New Era Pinstripe Bowl on Thursday, December 30.

The cast of 'Broadway's Best Party' will sing three classic rock songs -- "Here I Go Again," "Wanted (Dead or Alive)" and "Don't Stop Believin'."

Debuting in Los Angeles in 2006 before moving to New York City in 2008, Rock of Ages has garnered mainstream attention for its unique and hilarious take on the feel-good, sing-out-loud, rock hits from the 1980's.

Prior to the 3:22 p.m. kickoff, cast member Mitchell Jarvis will perform the national anthem. Additionally, the Kansas State Wildcats and Syracuse Orange marching bands will each perform on the field prior to the game.

Following the third quarter, Michael Minarik, also of Rock of Ages, will perform "God Bless America."

Gates will open to fans with valid tickets beginning at 1:30 p.m. The New Era Pinstripe Bowl asks their fans to please budget ample time when planning their trip to the Stadium and to consider using public transportation.
