Super Bowl LVI is only a few short days away, but the festivities are kicking off early!

Stars like Shaquille O’Neal, Kegan Michael Key, 50 Cent, Usher, Tinashe, and Drake are all making big hosting appearances, hitting the stage for performances, or rubbing elbows in nightlife settings in celebration of the big game coming to Los Angeles for the first time in 30 years.

With Omicron still sweeping the nation and mask mandates recently lifted in the state of California, many events are scaling back capacity and scaling down some grandeur in an effort to keep artists, athletes, and fans safe. But with safety protocols in place, the party is definitely underway starting Thursday evening.

Take a look at what the stars are getting into ahead of the big game. If you’ll be in town for the big NFL festivities (and have a little extra to spare for high-end tickets!) swing by and get into the Super Bowl Spirit while you pick which team you’ll root for.
