Cold Night for the Super Bowl Spectacular Concert

Temperatures were in the teens as the Super Bowl Spectacular concert officially kicked off a week of activities leading to the big game at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

The Goo Goo Dolls, Daughtry and the Fray all took the stage at Liberty State Park in front of a sold out crowd that included Governor Chris Christie (R) who watched from the concert’s warming station. He and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) greeted the crowd as they arrived according to CBS New York.

“Let’s do this again, next time in July,” Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls said as he left the stage according to the Star-Ledger.

The NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee, which presented the free concert, handed out earmuffs and hand warmers for concert goers. The frigid temperatures did keep actual attendance down. “It’s shame more people didn’t come,” Joellen Racioppo of Jersey City told the Star Ledger.

The concert was also aired live on Fox Sports 1 hosted by Erin Andrews and Joe Buck.

A 13-minute fireworks display accompanied by a soundtrack of Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Bruno Mars and Laga Gaga music ended the concert against the backdrop of the New York skyline according to the Record.

Singer Chris Daughtry noted the cold in a post-concert tweet.
