Traveling VIP space, Club Nomadic, has deferred all of its Super Bowl LII performances to another venue. Shows by Gwen Stefani, Florida Georgia Line, and The Chainsmokers were set to coincide with the temporary club but are now being moved to Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
“Unfortunately, as the event approached, we determined it would be impossible to ensure an event that is up to our standards of quality,” Angela Heikes, a Dakota February Events spokesperson, said in a statement. Dakota February Events is owned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community who own and operate the casino.
Nomadic Entertainment, a company owned by NFL’s hospitality arm On Location, was working with the Super Bowl to construct the temporary 64,000-square-foot and 9,000 seat venue in the parking lot of the Mystic Lake Casino. Between Feb. 1-4, the high-profile performers were set to bring Super Bowl fans to the casino 30 minutes outside of Minneapolis.
Tickets were already being sold for the upscale shows starting at $100. VIP options were originally going for over $10,000 but were being offered for 25% off as of last week according to the StarTribune.
Florida Georgia Line’s Feb. 3 concert will now happen at the 2,100-capacity Mystic Lake Showroom. The Chainsmokers will perform on Feb. 1 and Kygo with Ellie Goulding will perform on Feb. 2, both at the Mystic Lake Center. Stefani will close out the weekend with a performance at Mystic Lake Center on Super Bowl Sunday.
Nomadic Entertainment is still putting on other Super Bowl adjacent events. In downtown Minneapolis, Nomadic Live is presenting Imagine Dragons, Pink, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Lopez at the newly renovated Armory from Feb. 1-4.
“We are disappointed Mystic Lake is choosing not to bring the Club Nomadic Experience to the people of the Twin Cities. With that said, we encourage fans to experience our first-class experience at the Armory in Minneapolis,” Nomadic Entertainment said in a statement.
Last year in Houston, Club Nomadic’s pop-up concert venue successfully put on shows by Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars.
