The night before Bruno Mars takes the field at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Jay Z will play an exclusive pre-game party. The Roc Nation mogul has been tapped to headline DirecTV’s Super Saturday Night.
On February 1, Hov will take the stage at the invite-only event at DirecTV’s SuperFan Stadium at New York’s Hudson River Park Pier 40, reports Billboard. The party will be co-hosted by Mark Cuban’s AXS TV and Eli Manning.
During last year’s event in New Orleans, Justin Timberlake brought out Jay Z to perform “Suit & Tie” for the first time. Previous Super Saturday Night headliners have included Usher and Katy Perry.
Jay won’t be the only Carter on stage. Beyoncé is also expected to join her husband for at least one song. While DirecTV would not confirm the reports, hosts of other Super Bowl parties were told that the couple was already exclusively booked by another event that week.
“Obviously, we would love to have her, but no comment on the rumors,” a DirecTV spokeswoman told Billboard.
Drake, Diddy, J. Cole, and TLC are also scheduled to play shows in the days leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.
