Biz3Mayer Hawthorne will perform a halftime show on Rolling Stone’s website.If you’re one of the 55,000 discerning music fans who signed the petition to recall Nickelback from playing tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Day halftime show at Ford Field, Mayer Hawthorne is set to perform a special online gig just for you.
The R&B singer will perform the Hawthorne Halftime basement jam featuring his dad on bass and some Detroit friends in tow. Tune into rollingstone.com after the second quarter to check him out.
Nov. 23, Rolling Stone: “I’m gonna play a
short medley of favorites and some songs especially for Detroit,” says
Hawthorne. “The band will be all local musicians from Detroit. We’ll be
watching the game upstairs!”
For a self-confessed foodie like Hawthorne, quitting the kitchen on Turkey Day is quite a sacrifice. On behalf of Dennis Guttman, indignant Detroiters and music fans everywhere, we’d just like to say thanks. We’re hoping the show is as great as his recent jam session at Daryl Hall’s house (check it out below).
