Taylor Swift Kicks Off NFL With Dave Matthews Band


Taylor Swift Kicks Off NFL With Dave Matthews Band


There were also Harry Connick Jr. singing 'When the Saints Come Marching In' and Colbie Caillat belting out the national anthem.

The Dave Matthews Band turned up the heat at their televised National Football League (NFL) pre-game warm-up concert in New Orleans, Louisiana on Thursday night, September 9 when they performed a rendition of "Talking Heads' Burning Down the House".

The group was joined onstage by local dancers dressed up as Mardi Gras carnival characters at the big show, which also featured a two-song performance from Taylor Swift. Local hero Harry Connick Jr. then sang an off-key rendition of "When the Saints Come Marching In" on a parade float carried into the city's Superdome stadium and introduced the unveiling of the New Orleans Saints championship banner, which was hung from the rafters.

The Saints kicked off their 2010/2011 season against the Minnesota Vikings after Colbie Caillat's nervous rendition of the U.S. National Anthem.
