The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee announced two musical acts headlining the Verizon Stage at the free Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at Hance Park, 67 W. Culver St., Phoenix. Arizona-grown rock band Jimmy Eat World and award-winning country music artist Lee Brice will perform the evenings of Feb. 9 and 10.

“We are thrilled to bring free concerts featuring world-class talent to locals and visitors at the opening of Super Bowl festivities,” says Jay Parry, president & chief executive officer of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. “Jimmy Eat World and Lee Brice bring showstopping performances and will create the ultimate party atmosphere in the heart of downtown Phoenix.”

Alternative rock band Jimmy Eat World enters 2023 celebrating three decades of success. The born and raised Arizonans shot to fame with their iconic/anthemic single “The Middle” and continue to be pioneers of the genre with recent releases “Something Loud,” and “Place Your Debts.”

Lee Brice is an American country music artist. Brice attended Clemson University on a football scholarship, and after an arm injury, he focused on his country music career. He has taken nine radio singles to number one on the Billboard country charts, including “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” a duet with Carly Pearce that won Single of the Year at the American Country Music Awards in 2021.

The Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at Hance Park is a free outdoor festival for all ages open day to night. Viewing space for the concerts is based on availability on a first come, first served basis. Along with live entertainment and games, fans can enjoy local cuisine catering to every palette and local and domestic beer from Hensley Beverage Company.

The first-ever official Super Bowl Watch Party takes place Sunday at Hance Park. The game, broadcast on FOX, will be shown on the largest LED screens in Arizona. Gates open at 11 a.m. for the ultimate tailgate experience before the free watch party. A full list of Super Bowl events is available at
