Excited that the Super Bowl will be in the NYC/NJ area? Well here’s another reason to get hype. VH1 is kicking off the Super Bowl Blitz concert series to engage New York’s five boroughs and New Jersey. J. Cole, Janelle Monae, Fall Out Boy, TLC, Goo Goo Dolls and Gavin DeGraw will perform in Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island and Montclair, NJ, respectively.
The concerts will air live each night on VH1 at 11 p.m. ET/PT and also stream live on the VH1 mobile app and at SuperBowl.VH1.com.
Folks can start grabbing tickets on Monday, Jan. 13, but there’s a catch. VH1 will tweet out secret times and places in New York City where fans can show up to have their picture taken with Iggy The Penguin — the official mascot of the Super Bowl Blitz concert series — then tag their photo with the hashtag #Vh1Blitz for a chance to win tickets. There will also be a limited number of tickets available for purchase.
Here’s the VH1 Super Bowl Blitz concert schedule:
1/27 – J. Cole – Queens College – Queens, NY
1/28 – Janelle Monae – Lehman College – The Bronx, NY
1/29 – Fall Out Boy – Brooklyn Bowl – Brooklyn, NY
