Auditions set for Super Bowl fan fest entertainment

HOUSTON – Think you've got what it takes to entertain Super Bowl fans? This October is your chance to prove it as auditions will be held for entertainment at the event's fan festival.

Super Bowl LIVE is the 10-day event that precedes Super Bowl LI this February. The festivities will begin on Jan. 27 and feature Houston-area musicians, dancers and comedians. Admission is free.

Super Bowl Host Committee president and CEO Sallie Sargent said she is excited that local talent will be used for the event.

"The ability to shine a spotlight on local artists and performers at Super Bowl LIVE is an example of how we will highlight the diverse cultures and incredible talent Houston has to offer to the fans and visitors in town for (the) Super Bowl," Sargent said.

Super Bowl LIVE is expected to draw over a million people.

Auditions will take place Oct. 22 to 24 at Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day.
