Producers of the musical announced Jan. 17 that Rock of Ages was picked by the National Football League (NFL) for the Times Square performance, held at 41st Street and Broadway, and the Tailgate Party, held hours before kickoff at the Grandstand at Meadowlands Racetrack and Game Day Fan Plaza outside of MetLife.
Rock of Ages has also launched an online video contest for the chance to join the cast on the Super Bowl Boulevard stage to perform "Don't Stop Believin."
To enter, fans can submit a 15-30 second video of themselves "rockin' out to their favorite part of Bon Jovi's 'Wanted Dead Or Alive' or Whitesnake's 'Here I Go Again,'" — either as a YouTube link here or through Instagram using the hashtag #RockTimesSquare.
Submissions will be accepted through Jan. 20. A panel will choose the top five entries, which will be posted for open voting.
