According to a Jan. 18 report from Pollstar, this year's Super Bowl XLVII festivities at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will include dozens of performances from high-quality acts.

Hundreds of celebrity musicians will be in the New York City area for Super Bowl XLVII, and many of them will be rocking out to get football fans in party mode for the big game.

Mary J. Blige, Marc Anthony and John Legend are set to rock at a fancy pre-Super Bowl event at New York’s Cipriani’s, and Jay Z is playing at DirecTV’s Super Bowl Eve party in New York City.

The Cipriani's show costs more than $2,000 per ticket, so it's sure to be a star-studded affair.

In other Super Bowl action, the Kings of Leon and The Black Keys will be playing at two different events in the area.

Shay Mitchell of “Pretty Little Liars,” model Chrissy Teigen and world-renowned television star Guy Fieri, as well as Paramore, will be appearing at DirecTV's eighth annual beach bowl, while Janelle Monae, Fall Out Boy, TLC, J.Cole, the Goo Goo Dolls and Gavin DeGraw have been booked by VH1 for the "Super Bowl Blitz" concert in New Jersey.

“I think the expectations are a lot higher for New York,” said Jon Gieselman of DirecTV. “What’s so unique about it is you’re competing with other Super Bowl events but you’re really competing, also, with all of the other incredible things that New York has to offer. There’s so much to do in New York.”

Additionally, the Foo Fighters and Zac Brown Band will rock as part of Bud Light Hotel festivities near a cruise ship docked on the Hudson River.

Imagine Dragons, Run DMC and Fall Out Boy will also be playing at the event.

“I think it’s really special the Super Bowl is going to be there,” Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz said. “New York is already sort of pre-ready for this kind of event.”

Super Bowl XLVII, which features the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, takes place on Feb. 2.
