Passes. Huddling. Tushy patting. Camaraderie. Spiking. Midair chest bumps. Tears. The inevitable Disney World plug. Ah yes, that special time of the year is upon us, when the LOLZ! commercials and bombastic halftime festivities typically eclipse the big game itself – Super Bowl LIV. No, pigskins won’t be flying through the laser beams in the basement of the Fontainebleau – it’s Italian for 54 in 900BC.
And because Miami never misses an opportunity to get down & boogie and get completely (elegantly?) wasted in the process, corporations and their ad agencies are flocking to the Magic City like pilotfish on a great white, throwing concerts like Madmen. Like Art Basel-ites Basel until the pneumonia hits without glimpsing a single piece of art, so too will Super Bowl Week subsume Team No Sleep-ers, whose Sunday night IV drip sessions peskily conflict with a football game they never cared about to begin with. Wait, who’s playing again? Did we mention the soul-crushing traffic will make you shatter a Bordeaux glass and shove the jagged stem deep into your carotid artery?
Behold the big events, listed chronologically by day, including A-list concerts by Lady Gaga, Guns & Roses, Lizzo, Post Malone, Harry Styles, Chainsmokers, Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez and dozens more. MiMi’s unfluffy Super Bowl Week concert coverage will be updated, so check back!
