Phillip Phillips & The Band Perry to Perform at Super Bowl XLVIII Pregame Show & NFL on FOX

Broadway's Jersey Boys & Rock of Ages to perform at NFL Tailgate Party

NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PHILLIP PHILLIPS and THE BAND PERRY will perform as part of the Super Bowl XLVIII pregame show in East Rutherford, NJ on Sunday, February 2, the NFL and FOX announced today. The two acts will perform at the NFL Tailgate Party and part of each performance will be televised live on FOX SUPER BOWL SUNDAY.

In addition, Broadway will travel to New Jersey when the cast of the Tony and Grammy Award winning musical JERSEY BOYS and the cast of the electrifying musical ROCK OF AGES perform at the NFL Tailgate Party.

One of the biggest singles of 2012, the quadruple-platinum "Home" announced Phillip Phillips as a singer/guitarist of both rare authenticity and massive pop appeal. Centering on the American Idol season 11 winner's rich, raspy vocals and masterful guitar skills, "Home" served as the lead single from The World from the Side of the Moon (19 Entertainment/Interscope Records)—a platinum-selling album that shot to #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart upon its November 2012 release. Phillips' widely acclaimed debut also features the platinum single "Gone, Gone, Gone" and the Phillips' penned "Where We Came From," as well as a host of numbers that flaunt the 23-year-old Georgia native's songwriting chops. Phillips spent most of 2013 on the roadwith Matchbox 20, headlining a college tour and most recently he brought his rootsy brand of rock-and-roll to arenas around the country as the opening act for singer/songwriter superstar John Mayer's Born and Raised tour. Phillips is currently in the studio recording his next album and will debut a new song during his NFL Tailgate Party performance. www.phillipphillips.com

The Band Perry has ascended to dizzying heights since releasing their self-titled debut album on Republic Nashville in 2010, which scored the sibling trio a string of hits, including the quadruple-platinum "If I Die Young" (#1 on Billboard¹s Country and AC charts); platinum "You Lie" and gold "All Your Life" (#1 Country). Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid, the band has amassed over 10.3 million tracks sold from their platinum debut and gold sophomore release PIONEER, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #2 All Genre. In addition to acclaim from top critics across the country, PIONEER has produced two consecutive #1 Country smashes ­the platinum "Better Dig Two" and gold "DONE.", which earned Neil and Reid their first chart-topper as songwriters. Their latest single, "Don't Let Me Be Lonely," is currently #2 at Country radio. The Band Perry have also enjoyed sold-out headlining dates and are currently out on their first global headline tour WE ARE PIONEERS World Tour. Their showering of honors include multiple ACM, CMA, and CMT Music Awards, as well as GRAMMY, Teen Choice, AMA, ACA, and Billboard Music Award nominations, all of which has cemented the sibling trio as one of the hottest acts in recent history.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').
