Minneapolis concerts to provide soundtrack for Super Bowl

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Music producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis will be behind a series of free concerts in Minneapolis during the 10-day Super Bowl Live festival leading to the game.

Jam and Lewis got their start in Minneapolis and have worked with several big names. Among them is Prince, so a tribute is likely for the Minneapolis-born star who died last year. Jam and Lewis also worked with Michael and Janet Jackson and Kanye West.

The lineup hasn’t been announced but Super Bowl Host Committee spokeswoman Andrea Mokros tells the Star Tribune that Jam and Lewis will make sure the “Minnesota sound” is represented.

The festival on Nicollet Mall starts Friday, Jan. 26, and ends Sunday, Feb. 4.

Justin Timberlake will perform during the game’s halftime show, which is put on by the NFL.
