Creed's Thanksgiving Halftime Show is a memorable performance by the rock band Creed during a football game in Dallas, Texas on Thanksgiving day 2001. The performance, particularly of their song "Higher," has gone viral several times in the decades since the performance, thanks in large part to the aerialists gliding around Creed on the football field as they performed. The performance has been the subject of both ironic and sincere appreciation over the years since.
On November 22nd, 2001, Creed performed the halftime show at the Dallas Cowboys' annual football game on Thanksgiving. They performed a medley of "Higher," "My Sacrifice," and "Don't Stop Dancing" (shown below).
In particular, the opening of Creed's performance in which they perform "Higher" while surrounded by flying aerialists has been reposted numerous times on social media in the years since the performance (2022 repost by Barstool shown below).
