PHOENIX (December 20, 2022) — The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee today announced two musical acts headlining the Verizon Stage at the free Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at Hance Park. 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.
“We are thrilled to bring free concerts featuring world-class talent to locals and visitors at the opening of Super Bowl festivities,” said Jay Parry, president & chief executive officer of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. “Jimmy Eat World and Lee Brice bring showstopping performances and will create the ultimate party atmosphere in the heart of downtown Phoenix.”
Alternative rock band Jimmy Eat World enters 2023 celebrating three decades of success. The born and raised Arizonans shot to fame with their iconic/anthemic single “The Middle” and continue to be pioneers of the genre with recent releases “Something Loud” and “Place Your Debts.”
Lee Brice is an American country music artist. Brice attended Clemson University on a football scholarship, and after an arm injury, he focused on his country music career. He has taken nine radio singles to number one on the Billboard country charts, including “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” a duet with Carly Pearce that won Single of the Year at the American Country Music Awards in 2021.
The Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at Hance Park is a free outdoor festival for all ages open day to night. Viewing space for the concerts is based on availability on a first come, first served basis. Along with live entertainment and games, fans can enjoy local cuisine catering to every palette and local and domestic beer from Hensley Beverage Company.
The first-ever official Super Bowl Watch Party takes place Sunday at Hance Park. The game, broadcast on FOX, will be shown on the largest LED screens in Arizona. Gates open at 11 AM for the ultimate tailgate experience before the free watch party. A full list of Super Bowl events is available at azsuperbowl.com.
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.
