Green Day + Machine Gun Kelly to Play Pre-Super Bowl Festival
For the third year in a row, the three-night Music Fest will precede the Super Bowl with Green Day and Machine Gun Kelly representing rock as two of six big feature acts set to take the stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles between Feb. 10 and 12.
This year's Super Bowl will be held at the multi-billion dollar SoFi Stadium, the joint home of the NFL's Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers and, 15 miles away at the Staples Center, three nights of music will take place before two yet-to-be-determined teams will face off for their shot to hoist the coveted Lombardi Trophy.
The first night of Music Fest, Feb. 10, will feature Halsey, whose latest album If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power was co-produced and co-written by Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor and his frequent collaborator Atticus Ross, and Machine Gun Kelly, who landed a No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 last year with his pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall. Special guests for this night will be announced at a later time.
Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani (with Mickey Guyton) will perform the following night, with Green Day and Miley Cyrus on tap for the final night on Feb. 12.
The event is staged by the NFL's official hospitality partner, On Location, with Bud Light serving as the sponsor.
"Los Angeles is the epicenter of sports and entertainment, and we’re thrilled to host this incredible festival for a celebration of everything the city represents," said On Location President, Paul Caine.
