With the Super Bowl set for New Jersey’s MetLife stadium on February 2, the nearby New York metropolitan area is quickly turning into party central over the days leading up to the main sporting event.
For those wanting to rock out and celebrate The Lonely Island‘s eternal “I’m on a Boat” ethos at the same time, there’s a series of concerts to be held on a cruise ship docked at Manhattan’s Pier 88 on the Hudson River, with performances from Foo Fighters, The Roots, Imagine Dragons and more.
On February 1, the Foo Fighters will play a show with the Zac Brown Band, who recently released The Grohl Sessions, Vol. 1, produced by the Foo Fighters frontman. It’ll be the Foos first show in the area in a minute, following a few years off the road. (Do’t worry, they played a pizza parlor to warm up for this boat thing.)
According to CBS New York, the cruise ship will offer lodging for up to 4000 guests in 1900 staterooms.
It’s the same weekend that Brooklyn’s Barclays Center will host WFAN’s “Big Hello to Brooklyn” party, featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers, New Politics, MS MR and more rocking the arena on February 1, the night before Super Bowl XLVIII. Ticket on-sale for the WFAN (a Radio.com station) event starts tomorrow (December 20).
