Foo Fighters will headline a special gig next month in the run up to February's Superbowl.

Imagine Dragons, The Roots and Fall Out Boy will also perform at the event, which will be sponsored by the Bud Light Hotel, and will take place at New York's Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

The Roots are celebrating New York hip-hop at the first gig on January 30, joined on the bill by Run-DMC and Busta Rhymes. Imagine Dragons headline the second concert the day after on January 31. Foo Fighters, meanwhile, will team up with the Zac Brown Band for the February 1 gig. Dave Grohl recently worked on the country band's latest EP.

The festival-of-sorts comes to an end directly before the big game on February 2. That who will be headlined by Fall Out Boy and Jake Owen. The prestigious halftime performance, allegedly the most-watched TV performance of the year, will this year be Bruno Mars, who'll play at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Foo Fighters recently made their live return, performing in Mexico on December 11. During the concert, the band covered songs by The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Tom Petty. Despite saying the band would be having a break, Grohl recently said the band were busy working on their next album and hinted at a 2014 release. He told Rolling Stone: "We're writing the album in a way I don't think has been done before."
