The East Valley Tribune reported that, “In suburban Tempe, the Counting Crows played a free concert at Tempe Town Lake and thousands of fans attended.” In fact, nearly 50,000 fans attended the first annual Super Bowl Saturday Night on February 2nd, 2008. The event was a tremendous success with crowd-pleasing performances by Spin.com’s 2006 Artist of the Year Boys Like Girls and the multiplatnum-selling Counting Crows.
Carpoolers’ Jerry O’Connell hosted the event and was joined onstage by Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker, Derrick Brooks, to rev-up the crowd for Super Bowl XLII. Super Bowl Saturday Night ended with a fireworks spectacular that truly was, well, spectacular.
SportingLife.com’s Alexander Ferguson wrote, “As the Counting Crows faded away into the sunset, suddenly the sky seemed to explode with fireworks. It was like New Year’s, Fireworks Night and the Queen’s 50th Jubilee rolled into one monstrous multicoloured firework.”
The FiveCurrents team, including Executive Producer Scott Givens, is excited with the success of Super Bowl Saturday Night and is now turning their attention to the first Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI-U), which will take place at Tulane University on March 14 – 16, 2008.
