Add another option to the ever-growing list of pre-Super Bowl LIII activities.
The Foo Fighters will headline the DirecTV Super Saturday Night concert on Feb. 2 at a temporary venue to be constructed on-site at Atlantic Station. The concert will be held on the eve of Super Bowl LIII, which will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Jack Murphy, executive producer of the event, said Wednesday morning that the three-tiered complex will be nearly 72,000 square feet with capacity for about 6,000 people.
“It’s important that we curate a special building,” Murphy said. “It’s not a traditional show. When people show up on-site it’s a pretty special night. … it will be something unique for the city.”
Acknowledging the number of events taking place in the lead-up to the Super Bowl, Murphy said, “We’re not better than anybody else, we’re just different.”
