More entertainment and broadcasting plans for Super Bowl 46 were released today at a press conference held at Lucas Oil Stadium, including the names of music acts to grace the various stages in the Super Bowl Village, which takes up a three-block stretch of Georgia St.
Rick Fuson, volunteer co-chair of the Super Bowl Village committee, announced the following singers and groups on two stages: national acts on the Verizon Stage at Pennsylvania and Georgia streets, and regional and Indiana-based acts on the Pepsi Stage at Meridian and Georgia streets. (BONUS: Super City then took to the airwaves [audio at right below the photos] to discuss the Super Bowl Village entertainment choices and Mayor Greg Ballard's witty thoughts.)
