This Saturday’s DirecTV pre-Super Bowl bash dubbed “Super Saturday Night” had everything– a performance by Jay Z complete with surprise Beyoncé cameo, DJ Tiesto, a top-shelf open bar, gourmet food, and tons of celebrity guests.
With Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul McCartney, and Jamie Foxx among the 6,000 attendees in the specially constructed 88,000-square-foot stadium at Pier 40 in Manhattan, Page Six reports that the evening’s grand total made it the most expensive Super Bowl party in history.
While the exact cost isn’t known, Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Tiesto alone commanded more than $US2 million to perform at the party, notes Page Six, adding that
“The enormous cost of the event was offset by sponsorship from Mark Cuban’s Axs TV and Bank of America.”
Earlier on Saturday, DirecTV held their annual “Beach Bowl,” where athletes competed against celebrities in a flag football match. T
ons of sand from Virginia was shipped into the heated, custom-built stadium for the star-studded event.
