It’s time to get Back To Football as the NFL begins its 93rd season with a rocking celebration in its special pregame show, "NFL KICKOFF 2012 PRESENTED BY BUD LIGHT” – 7:30 PM ET Wednesday, September 5. Multi-platinum global stars MARIAH CAREY and NO DOUBT are scheduled to perform in the 10th anniversary of NFL Kickoff.

The musical performances are part of the celebration to kick off the 2012 season and to honor the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. The Rockefeller Center show is the third Kickoff set at an iconic New York City landmark, following shows live from Times Square (2002) and Columbus Circle (2008). This is the 10th anniversary of NFL Kickoff continuing the tradition of saluting the Super Bowl champions with the opening game in their stadium in primetime.
The show leads into the season opener between the Giants and the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium (NBC, NBCSports.com, Westwood One Radio Sports, 8:30 PM ET).
The NBC show will feature performances by Grammy Award-winning artists Mariah Carey and No Doubt from a specially-constructed stage in front of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, above the iconic statue of Prometheus facing toward Fifth Avenue. Mariah Carey, who leads all solo artists with an unprecedented 18 #1 Hot 100 singles, recently released her new single “Triumphant (Get ’Em).” No Doubt’s new album 'Push And Shove" will be released September 25 and their chart-topping single "Settle Down' is out now. More information on how fans can watch the free concert will be announced shortly.
