With the Super Bowl in the New York area this weekend, NFL sponsor Bud Light has organized a series of concerts that will take place on an aircraft carrier stationed on the Hudson River. Rolling Stone is pleased to annouce that we’ll be streaming concerts by Foo Fighters, the Roots and Imagine Dragons beginning this Thursday. All of Rolling Stone’s Super Bowl XLVIII coverage – including links to these shows – is available here.
Visit RollingStone.com Thursday at 11 p.m. EST to catch the Roots, who are leading a program they’ve dubbed “The Roots Present Hip-Hop NYC,” which will feature appearances by Run-DMC, Busta Rhymes and more. On Friday, Best Rock Performance Grammy winners Imagine Dragons will perform at 12 a.m. EST (so technically Saturday morning). And on February 1st, Foo Fighters will play their first New York show since 2012 (following their very short hiatus) on the boat.
The Bud Light Hotel Amphitheater will be located in the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, which is docked at New York City’s Pier 86. The heated venue within the boat will be two stories high and able to hold a cozy 1,500 people.
