In December, we reported on the Super Bowl Live concert series, which will go down free of charge along Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis. On Friday, event organizers dropped the whole damn 10-day lineup on us, which you'll see posted below.

Freshly announced highlights include: radio-rockers X Ambassadors, Frozen star Idina Menzel, hip-hop hook singer Skylar Grey, "Black Beatles" hitmakers Rae Sremmurd, and local rap heavyweight Brother Ali. They'll join previously announced locals Bob Mould, Dessa, the Jayhawks, Soul Asylum, the Suburbs, Mint Condition, and New Power Generation, plus a Prince tribute featuring the Revolution, Sheila E., and Morris Day.

A pretty nice buffet of free tunes from co-curators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis!
