Rolling Stone Party Details

About to plunk down a grand for a ticket to the Rolling Stone Super Bowl party on February 4? The mag’s first-ever Super Bowl bash could be a concert worth every penny—and we’ll know more tomorrow, when the host expects to announce the night’s musical lineup.

Stay tuned…
