Taylor Swift will be performing at the pre-Super Bowl weekend. Taylor Swift will be partnering with AT&T to perform a concert on the night before the Big Game in Houston.
That partnership will allow AT&T and Swift to make a variety of events together, which includes her headlining the AT&T DirecTV Super Saturday Night in Houston, Texas, on Feb. 4, 2017. Swift will perform in a venue specifically made for her performance the day before Super Bowl LI will be held in the city’s NRG Stadium. Tickets for the concert will be made available through AT&T promotions and contests.
Swift is a Diet Coke endorser which is too bad for her since the Super Bowl halftime show is sponsored by rival Pepsi which is why she is shut out of the halftime performance.
