Zac Brown Band & Jake Owen Join Super Bowl XLVIII Performances
They won’t be taking the 50-yard line at the MetLife Stadium on February 2, 2014 but Jake Owen and Zac Brown Band will be featured in two different wild parties in New Jersey before the two undecided NFL teams take the field.
The Bud Light Hotel, a brand new cruise ship docked on the Hudson River, will be back in business this Super Bowl season as they prepare for four days of mind-blowing musical performances from a slew of music formats. The party starts January 30 when Jimmy Fallon’s house band The Roots will perform an ode to the history of hip hop. January 31 will get radioactive as Imagine Dragons headlines that night’s VIP concert.
But it’s February 1 and 2 that country fans needs to jot down in their calendars as Zac Brown Band and Jake Owen perform. Zac Brown will team up with Foo Fighters on February 1, which isn’t a huge surprise as Dave Grohl recently teamed up with Zac Brown Band to produce their latest venture, The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1.
On February 2, Jake Owen will host a pre-game concert on the ship alongside pop punk rockers Fall Out Boy to kick off the start of Super Bowl XLVIII.
“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 of Bud Light in 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.”
Since tailgating is banned from MetLife Stadium for Super Bowl XLVIII, this may be a country fan’s best bet.
