On Sunday (November 23), Gun N’ Roses’ ridiculously long-awaited album will be featured throughout the Grey Cup broadcast, with several tracks being televised nationally on TSN and RDS. Also, since Sunday marks Chinese Democracy’s official release day, football fans will be able to buy the record during the game at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, making the album the first to be available for sale at a Grey Cup venue.
The press release was unclear, however, on how the sales will occur, but we can only hope that the vendors roaming the stands will be selling copies right alongside the usual beer, hot dogs and savoury snacks.
It’s also unclear whether Via Rail will try to capitalize on the promotion and test-launch its proposed download service so that fans can blast Chinese Democracy on the way to the big game.
To get you pumped, here’s a little help from the press release: "Now the enormously influential GN’R is ready to rock once again” — at the Grey Cup!
