Before Super Bowl 50 kicked off at Santa Clara's Levi's Stadium on February 7th, superstar DJ/producer Avicii pumped the crowd at the Rolling Stone Live Big Game Bash, which took over San Francisco's the Galleria on February 6th. Grammy-nominated "Ex's and Oh's" singer Elle King and GOOD Music/Grand Hustle rapper Travis Scott also performed at the event.
A partnership between Rolling Stone and Talent Resources Sports, Rolling Stone Live: San Francisco was the place to hang and be seen during Super Bowl weekend – no matter which team was your favorite to win. And it's just the beginning as Rolling Stone publisher Michael Provus explains: "We look forward to once again partnering with TOAST, Bookemdanno and Talent Resources Sports."
The three Rolling Stone Live performers all enjoyed a banner year in 2015: Avicii released his latest LP Stories in October, while King was nominated for a pair of Grammys – Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song – for her breakout single "Ex's and Oh's," from her debut LP, Love Stuff. Scott dropped his own Rodeo and also appeared on standout cuts featuring Kanye West as well as Wiz Khalifa's new single "Bake Sale." The rapper will also serve as the opening act on Rihanna's upcoming Anti Tour.
