Just days before the 2019 Super Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia, Ludacris, Migos, and Lil Jon will headline a concert to kick-off the EA Sports Bowl.
The concert ahead of the EA Sports Bowl was announced via Electric Arts Inc. and OnLocation Experiences on Monday, noting that the show will celebrate Atlanta rappers. Other performers include Lil Yachty, Metro Boomin, and Lil Baby. The concert will take place on January 31, 2019 as a part of the three-day Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest at the State Farm Arena.
“I’m proud to welcome everyone to Atlanta, my hometown, alongside EA Sports,” Ludacris said in a statement. “You know me and my friends are going to celebrate Atlanta’s amazing music and culture, this is going to be a night you won’t want to miss.”
Other Atlanta-based artists, including some special guests who will take the stage with Ludacris, will be announced soon. Tickets go on sale this Friday, November 9.
The concert follows the news of Jermaine Dupri’s Super Bowl Live concert series, set to commence on January 26 and run through February 2 at Atlanta’s Centennial Park. Dupri explained that he as the “unofficial man of the city,” he cares about how people view Atlanta.
“I feel like it’s my job to make sure the ‘Welcome to Atlanta Experience’ is the best that you ever had for those who still do support Super Bowl weekend,” he told TMZ Sports.
