Janelle Monae, J. Cole and TLC are among the artists who’ll be participating in VH1’s annual Super Bowl Blitz concert event, which this year will include an entire series of shows throughout the New York City/New Jersey metropolitan area the week before the big game on February 2.
Dubbed Super Bowl Blitz: Six Nights + Six Concerts, the concerts will run from Monday, January 27 to Saturday, February 1, with each show featuring a different headliner. Hosted by Nick Cannon and Stacy Keibler, all six concerts will air live on VH1 each night at 11 p.m. ET/PT. They’ll also be streamed live via the VH1 App, and at SuperBowl.VH1.com the day after each live concert airs.
J. Cole will kick things off in Queens on January 27 at Queens College followed by Janelle, who will play Lehman College in the Bronx on January 28. Meanwhile, TLC will take stage inside the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan on January 30. Other artists participating include The Goo Goo Dolls, Gavin DeGraw and Fall Out Boy.
If you’re heading to the area for the big game, you can score tickets to the events. You’ll need to follow VH1 on Twitter, go to the locations they tweet out, get your picture taken with the VH1 Blitz mascot, Iggy the Penguin, and tweet out the picture with the hashtag #VH1Blitz. VH1 will begin tweeting out locations on Monday.
