GREEN BAY - The NFL is putting on the shindig starring Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum and Maroon 5. 

Frank Supovitz is the NFL's Sr. Vice President of Events, and he he talked about why the stage has been set at the corner of Oneida and Lombardi.

"Normally, we do it in an iconic spot in the city that hosts the game.  There's nothing more iconic than Lambeau Field when you think about Green Bay," said Supovitz.

Officials say as many as 40,000 people may show up. 

The gates open at 3:15.  The music starts at 4:30 and runs until 6:40. 

The closures around the stadium include Oneida Street between Lombardi and Potts, along with Armed Forces Drive.
