Super Bowl 2023 in Arizona was a star-studded affair, with A-listers like Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Fox, Drake and Cher all heading to the desert to party ahead of the big game.
The festivities kicked off Thursday night with Gin Blossoms and Jimmy Eat World – both Phoenix natives – entertaining the crowd Downtown at Hance Park. The event marked the first time the two ’90s staples took the stage together.
A few blocks away, other music fans flocked to the Footprint Center to catch Bleachers and Paramore kick off night one of the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest presented by On Location.
Other artists that took part in the three-night music festival included Kane Brown, Imagine Dragons and Dave Matthews Band.
Festivities continued across the valley in Old Town Scottsdale Thursday with a late-night performance from Tyga at Maya Dayclub. Around the corner at W Scottsdale, Pepsi Zero Sugar hosted a G-Eazy show, which brought out celebs like Mario Lopez, Scott Eastwood, Cedric The Entertainer, Kevin Federline and more.
“G Eazy was of course flirting with all the girls,” a source exclusively told Page Six. “He was blowing kisses and all.”
Shaquille O’Neal’s annual “Shaq’s Fun House” also brought a slew of people to the Talking Stick Resort Friday night for the music festival-meets-carnival presented by Netspend.
Michael Phelps, Allen Iverson, Chandler Parsons and more walked the red carpet before heading inside to catch Snoop Dogg, Diplo and DJ Diesel (aka Shaq) perform to a crowd of over 5,000 fans, athletes and celebrities.
Celebs spotted in the star-studded crowd included Cher, Alexander “A.E.” Edwards, Serena Williams and Michael Strahan.
MGK and Fox were also photographed at the event, marking the last time they were seen together in public before breakup rumors spread like wildfire. Split speculation began after the actress shared a cryptic Instagram post, removed all pics of her fiancé from her feed and eventually deactivated her account.
However, the alleged drama didn’t hold MGK back from performing one night later at Sports Illustrated’s The Party. The rocker hyped up the crowd with a set list of hits including “My Ex’s Best Friend,” “Forget Me Too,” “El Diablo,” “Maybe” and “God Save Me.”
A source confirmed to Page Six that Fox was not on site for the performance and she did not accompany MGK on the red carpet. However, the “Jennifer’s Body” star was never listed on the party’s initial tip sheet, which was sent weeks before the alleged split.
That same evening, MAXIM, Tao Group Hospitality and unKommon events teamed up for the “Big Game Party: Catch Me If You Can” at the Southwest Jet Center in Scottsdale.
Featuring performances by Zedd, Offset, Loud Luxury and more, the event brought out everyone from Cher to Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and Jalen Rose.
The festivities concluded with various tailgate parties – hosted by Flay and Guy Fieri – at locations in walking distance from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, where celebs witnessed the Kansas City Chiefs win Super Bowl LVII over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Other stars, like Adele, Cardi B and Cara Delevingne, seemingly only attended the big game to catch “the Rihanna concert.”
