Rolling Stone has put together an all-star talent roster for the Volkswagen Rock & Roll Fan Tailgate Party just before the Super Bowl on February 5th in Indianapolis, with performances by Jane’s Addiction and the Roots. Joining them on the bill as guest DJ will be ex-Fall Out Boy and current Black Cards member Pete Wentz.
The Tailgate Party follows the previous night’s Rolling Stone concert with LMFAO, Gym Class Heroes, Lupe Fiasco and Cobra Starship.
Beloved for their parties – frontman Perry Farrell founded Lollapalooza – their artistic sense and their showmanship, Jane’s Addiction have turned their live show into performance art. At the core, though, is a band of exceptional musicianship, as seen on their critically acclaimed release of last year, The Great Escape Artist.
Just as Jane’s are hailed in the alternative field, the Roots have been widely regarded for years as arguably the greatest live hip-hop band on the planet. Together, the two bands promise to dazzle Indy, and they won’t be the only stars in attendance: Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana will celebrate the 30th anniversary of “The Catch” by throwing passes to eight fans, as well as escort one fan to the Super Bowl.
“I am grateful to be a part of such an honored moment in football history that still resonates with fans on its 30th anniversary,” said Montana, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and three-time Super Bowl MVP. “The Rolling Stone Volkswagen Fan Tailgate Party is a fun way to relive an iconic moment of the Big Game and celebrate history in the making with football fans in Indianapolis.”
