We’ve brought together a world-class lineup of concerts that features some of the biggest names in the industry – including Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons and The Roots – and pays tribute to New York City’s impact on music and culture,” said Rob McCarthy, vice president, Bud Light via a press release. “With the help of our amazing partners, EA SPORTS, Pandora and Pepsi, this year’s Bud Light Hotel will stand apart as one of the premier destinations for Super Bowl week entertainment.
REVOLT TV (Diddy’s network) will be having a show as well with Drake headlining. Of course Diddy will be performing as well. That show will be at NYCs Highline Stages.
Bruno Mars will take the stage at halftime and although people are worrisome about him performing in the cold, he doesn’t seem to be.
I know it’s going to be cold and I just got to face it. I’m going to wear a beekeeper suit…even if I have to build a chimney onstage, perform around a fire, I’ll do it.
