Super Bowl 53: Foo Fighters concert from Atlantic Station will stream live

The Foo Fighters are going all-in on their pre-Super Bowl performance at Atlantic Station.

To hype the sold-out concert, frontman Dave Grohl wrote and directed a short film featuring the goofy antics of the San Fernando Jackalopes, a hapless football team of misfits (shocker – they’re played by the rest of the band members). The five-minute video – which you can see below - also features Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw and Michael Strahan.

The guys, who played Georgia State Stadium in April, will storm the specially constructed “venue” on Feb. 2 with Run the Jewels opening (we’ll have a bigger story and video about this cool addition to Super Bowl weekend in a few days). 

But even if you didn’t snag one of the 3,000 tickets that were made available for purchase, you can still check out the performance as it streams online on Twitter or on DirecTV Audience Network Ch. 239 or DirecTV Now.

The live stream will begin at 10:30 p.m. and the band is set to hit the stage at 11 p.m.
