GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum and Maroon 5 will play the NFL Kickoff 2011 concert outside Lambeau Field before the Green Bay Packers Sept. 8 opener against the New Orleans Saints.

The concert will take place on a stage adjacent to Lambeau Field, continuing the NFLs recent tradition of big-name musical acts playing before the first game of the season. The Dave Matthews Band, Taylor Swift and Harry Connick Jr. performed in New Orleans last year.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. EDT, an hour before kickoff, and will be shown on NBCs pregame show and on the NFL Network.
