Machine Gun Kelly among big name musicians participating in Super Bowl Weekend

Many stars will be in town for the Big Game

Fans attending Super Bowl 57 Weekend in Glendale, Arizona will have the chance to see several of the world’s marquee singers and musicians.

In September, it was announced that Rihanna will be headlining the Super Bowl 57 Halftime Show at State Farm Stadium, home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, on February 12th. Fans will have to wait patiently to see which other top music artists will join Rihanna on the grand stage for the halftime performance.

What we do know is that Rihanna won’t be the only major music star in town for Super Bowl weekend. Rapper Machine Gun Kelly and The Chainsmokers will be performing at the Sports Illustrated Super Bowl Party, set to take place on February 11th at the Talking Stick Resort. The event is sponsored by Captain Morgan.

Machine Gun Kelly is from Cleveland. His Browns were eliminated from playoff contention and thus won’t have the chance to end their Super Bowl 57 drought this year, but there’s still a realistic chance of the Buckeye State holding a Super Bowl parade next month.

The reigning AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals will finish as a top-three seed in the AFC. With the Buckeye State launching sports betting on January 1st, NFL fans in Ohio can now place wagers using DraftKings codes on events such as the Super Bowl even though the Browns are out.

The Bengals made an unexpected run to Super Bowl 56 last season, where they dropped a heartbreaker to Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium (the home of the Rams and Los Angeles Chargers). Now, the Bengals will try to follow the footsteps of the 2018 New England Patriots, who won Super Bowl 53 one year after losing the big game (they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52).

NBA legend and Basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal will also be part of the Super Bowl 57 weekend festivities. On February 10th, the 4x NBA Champion will host his carnival event, Shaq’s Fun House Presented by Netspend, at the Talking Stick Resort with Snoop Dogg and Diplo.

Machine Gun Kelly is no stranger to performing at NFL-related events, either. He also performed during the 2021 NFL Draft, which was held at FirstEnergy Stadium, the Browns’ home venue.

At the draft, Machine Gun Kelly played some of his top hits such as “Till I Die”, and “Bloody Valentine.” Bringing in one of Cleveland’s most accomplished musicians and a beloved Browns celebrity fan was an awesome way to fire up the crowd for the 2021 NFL Draft.

Now, Machine Gun Kelly will get the chance to energize the crowd a day before Super Bowl 57 in Arizona. And he’ll have The Chainsmokers right by his side.
