Final Headlining Artist, Major Lazer Soundsystem, Announced for Super Bowl Experience at Hance Park

PHOENIX (February 3, 2023) — The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee today announced Major Lazer Soundsystem as the final headlining act to take the Verizon Stage on Saturday, February 11, at the free Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at Hance Park.

The other previously announced headliners, Arizona-grown rock band Jimmy Eat World and award-winning country music artist Lee Brice will perform the evening of Thursday, February 9, and Friday, February 10, respectively.

Major Lazer is the global dance trio of DiploWalshy Fire and Ape Drums. Named for the group’s fictional figurehead, a one-armed Jamaican Zombie War commando, Major Lazer’s mission is to free the universe with music. The band has released four acclaimed albums, 2009’s Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do, 2013’s Free The Universe, 2015’s Peace Is The Mission, featuring the Diamond-certified “Lean On” with DJ Snake and MØ—one of the most successful songs of all time—and 2020’s Music Is The Weapon, which features songs in five languages and collaborations with Nicki Minaj, J Balvin, Marcus Mumford, Khalid, Alessia Cara, Anitta, Paloma Mami, Busy Signal, BEAM, Shenseea, Nucleya and more.

“The accomplished musicians performing free shows on the Verizon Stage at Hance Park are not-to-be-missed,” said Jay Parry, president & chief executive officer of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. “There will be entertainment for every genre throughout the four-day festival, and we welcome everyone to downtown Phoenix to make their special Super Bowl memories.”

Opening for Major Lazer Soundsystem is A R I Z O N A, the rock and electropop band trio from New Jersey. The band is kicking off 2023 with new music just in time for their performance.

Additionally, the Gin Blossoms, an alternative rock band formed in Tempe, Arizona, will open for Jimmy Eat World on Thursday, February 9. The band has multiple chart-topping hits, including “Hey Jealousy” and “As Long as It Matter.”

About the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee

The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee is an Arizona nonprofit responsible for planning and executing a successful Super Bowl LVII in 2023. The goal of the Host Committee is to galvanize local stakeholders in a united approach to hosting the largest single-day sporting event in the world by maximizing positive media exposure, fueling the economic engine of Arizona, and leaving a lasting legacy. The Host Committee serves as liaison between the NFL and all regional efforts, culminating with the game in 2023 at State Farm Stadium, home to the Arizona Cardinals. This is the fourth time Arizona is hosting the Super Bowl, following 1996, 2008 and 2015. Only four other sites (South Florida, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Tampa Bay) hold this distinction.
