As football fans gas up their grills and apply warrior-style face paint in anticipation of the 2017-2018 NFL season, music fans also have a reason to join the huddle. 

As the culminating event of the NFL's "Random Acts of Kickoff" series, Billboard can exclusively reveal that Grammy-winning R&B crooner Miguel is set to perform live at a musical pop-up event in Boston this Thursday (Sep. 7) in honor of the New England Patriots' fifth Super Bowl victory over the Atlanta Falcons back in February.

According to a NFL spokesperson, the event will also include appearances from past championship legends of the Patriots franchise. 

The event precedes Thursday night's season opener between the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium with kickoff time set for 8:30 p.m. ET. Attendees will have the chance to win tickets to the kickoff game later that night by registering on the NFL's Website and checking in at the concert.

Prior to the start of the performance, guests in Columbus Park will also enjoy a special viewing of America’s Game: The Super Bowl Champions, an NFL Films documentary narrated by Chris Evans that chronicles the team's road to championship glory. 

The free event, a part of 2017 NFL Kickoff driven by Hyundai, is open to the public at Boston's Christopher Columbus Park on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 12 p.m. ET.
