Pitbull and Flo Rida will help Rolling Stone kick off Super Bowl weekend New Orleans-style on February 1st, when they'll hit the stage for Rolling Stone LIVE at the Bud Light Hotel.

The bash, which begins at 9:15 p.m. EST, will also feature America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon spinning musical selections from the DJ booth all night. A limited number of general admission tickets will be available, as well as a limited number of VIP tickets offering access to the Rolling Stone rock lounge, where partygoers can order from a special New Orleans-inspired menu.

Last year's tailgate party featured performances from Jane's Addiction and The Roots; while LMFAO, Gym Class Heroes, Lupe Fiasco and Cobra Starship played the kickoff party.
