Rapper Snoop Dogg
and rockers 3 Doors Down will take center stage Feb. 3 and 4 for Bud Bowl 2006,
a pair of invitation-only concerts presented by Budweiser and Bud Light.
Snoop will perform Feb. 3, while 3 Doors Down will take the
stage the following night on Feb. 4 at Tiger Stadium in Detroit, Michigan.
The Detroit Tigers moved from Tiger Stadium, known as “The
Corner,” for the modern stadium at Comerica Park after the 1999 season.
“The Bud Bowl events at Tiger Stadium will allow our friends
in Detroit to experience 'The Corner' one more time and will provide top entertainment
perfect for a championship weekend," stated Phil Kazer, region vice president,
Anheuser-Busch. "Our company is also excited to give Detroit sports fans
a rare glimpse of Tiger Stadium, one of sports greatest venues, by reopening
it during this historic weekend."
The concerts will precede the Super Bowl, which takes place
on Feb. 5 and airs on ABC.
Snoop and 3 Doors Down will perform on the infield in Tiger
Stadium, enclosed in a 132-foot by 230-foot climate-controlled expo hall.
Budweiser will air the equivalent of 10 30-second “Bud
Bowl” spots, including the coveted first ad after the opening kickoff
during the 2006 game broadcast on
Doors open at 8:30
p.m. for both shows, which take place at Tiger Stadium in Detroit, Michigan.
