Seems Maroon 5 isn't the only act coming to town during Super Bowl weekend, as the Big Game comes to North Texas on February 6.
Unfortunately, though, as of now, they still appear as if they're the only ones throwing a free show for all to attend. A few more Super Bowl weekend concerts were announced over these past few days. Too bad they'll all cost you a pretty penny to attend.
Check them out after the jump.
Late last week, the NFL announced the first two nights off its planned, official festivities to take place at the Grand Prairie's Verizon Theatre.
Thursday, February 3, probably features the biggest night we've yet seen announced, as a varied bill of Kid Rock, Duran Duran and Jason Derulo will join forces in a concert that will, at least in part, be broadcast on VH1. Tickets run $45 to $60 and are available through Ticketmaster.
The following night, the NFL will host a Latin-themed night of music in the same venue, with tickets again going for $45 on Ticketmaster, although none of the performers' names have yet to be released.
And, in more local news, the mall-punkers in Forever the Sickest Kids will host a "Texas-Sized Super Bowl Party" at The Door on Saturday, February 5. Ticket prices have yet to be announced.
