Grammy winners OneRepublic to open BC Lions home opener

The Lions will be taking on the Elks.
OneRepublic will play a set at the BC Lions' home opener.

The BC Lions will be launching their 2022 campaign with a big-name musical act this June.

OneRepublic, who's 2007 megahit won them accolades around the world, will be the opening act for the Lions' game against the Edmonton Elks when the team returns to BC Place June 11.

“They have so many different great hits, and we were very fortunate to get them," says team owner Amar Doman in a press release. “We didn’t want to go too hard rock or too rappy. We just want to be something that everybody knows. It won’t be painful for everybody. It’s gonna be very enjoyable.”

Along with the opening show, which will start at 6:30 p.m., before kickoff at 7 p.m., there'll be a pregame party on Robson Street. 

TIckets are on sale for all Lions' games now.
