Stevie Wonder To Perform Over Super Bowl Weekend

Subscribe to Stevie Wonder alerts

Musical genius, icon and all-round nice guy Stevie Wonder is going to make the Super Bowl weekend a whole lot more magical, as he will be performing in New Orleans next week for the much-anticipated Super Bowl extravaganza.

A spokesperson for the once a year event said today (Jan 25) that Bud Light will be sponsoring the concert, which will also feature performances by Texan blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr. and more at an open-air venue near the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel in NO. But wait, there's more!

If the prospect of having Alicia Keys perform the national anthem prior to kick off, Beyonce (and maybe even the rest of Destiny's Child) performing at halftime and Stevie all in the same city over the same weekend, the star-studded line-up doesn't end just there. Justin Timberlake is lined up to appear live for the first time in over four years during the 'DIRECTV Super Saturday Night' performance on the 2nd. The performance is an invitation-only concert being held directly after DIRECTV’s 'Celebrity Beach Bowl,' with singer/rapper Pitbull set to perform at that shindig too.

If that wasn't enough, both Neil Patrick Harris and Snoop Dogg/Lion will also be showing their faces over the weekend too. Oh yeah, they'll be some football (not the real kind) being played too.
