We’re talking an epic performance including Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige, and Kendrick Lamar – the first unmissable line-up since Lady Gaga’s performance back in 2017. Here’s our guide to where to watch the Super Bowl in Manchester this year.
GRUB MCR will be showing the big game on the big screen this weekend, providing the perfect chill spot for mates to enjoy. Kicking off at 9.30pm, guests will be able to enjoy beers, cider and more alongside posh kebabs filled with vegan fillings, chicken and halloumi. Get tickets here.
