Super Bowl 53: Ciara and 21 Savage added to Super Bowl Music Fest

The first night of the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest EA Sports Bowl picked up more star power with the additions of Ciara and 21 Savage.

The three nights of concerts at State Farm Arena will kick off Jan. 31 with Ludacris and “friends” – the previously reported Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, Metro Boomin and Lil Jon – and continue with Aerosmith and Post Malone on Feb. 1 and Bruno Mars with Cardi B on Feb. 2.

The newest add-ons to opening night mark more Atlanta inclusion.

Ciara, whose musical career blossomed in the city with 2004’s “Goodies,” has maintained ties even after marrying Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (she was previously engaged to another familiar Atlantan – rapper Future – and has a 4-year-old son with him). 

21 Savage grew up in DeKalb County and his career is continuing its upswing. In December, his second studio album, “I Am > I Was,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart, with nine songs from the album debuting on the Billboard Hot 100.

Tickets are still available for all shows via and start at $50 for Jan. 31, $125 Feb. 1 and $200 Feb. 2. All of the concerts will begin at 9 p.m.
