With a lot of backlash from several Atlanta residents since the announcement of Maroon 5 as the halftime entertainment, the Super Bowl host committee has picked Jermaine Dupri to showcase Atlanta talent in a Pre-Super Bowl concert.
Dupri will help secure talent for the downtown Atlanta concerts. They are set to be free for the public.
In a newly released press release, Dupri stated, “Since I’ve entered the music scene I’ve always had concerns with how people view the city of Atlanta both musically and overall. It’s an incredible place to be and I am always thinking of ways to make the view better. I feel it’s my duty as the unauthorized Mayor to help Super Bowl Live create the best Welcome to Atlanta experience for the fans ever!”
The Super Bowl will take place at the Atlanta Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 3, 2019.
