50 Cent and Chris Brown are among the rap and R&B stars who are planning to host club events in the Bay Area during Super Bowl weekend, and you'll need deep pockets for the more flamboyant options.
Miami's DJ Khaled, whose catchphrase is "We the best," will shatter local nightclub price records for his Super Bowl pre-party at the Grand in San Francisco on Feb. 4. Tickets start at $52.69 for general admission and soar to $20,609.95 for entry and a VIP table for 20 people on an elevated platform with a direct view of the DJ.
One of the priciest options has already sold out for 50 Cent and Chris Brown's Super Bowl party from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. at San Francisco nightclub Origin on Feb. 6; it's too late to claim the elevated VIP table for $8,000, but you can still grab other VIP options ranging from $2,500 to $8,000 — or just get a general admission ticket for $89.
Brown and 50 are doing double duty since the two will appear with R&B star Ty Dolla $ign and producer DJ Mustard earlier in the night at 7 p.m. on Feb. 6 at the Fox Theater in Oakland; tickets are $49.50.
Legendary old-school hip-hop party MC Doug E Fresh will work with Bay Area DJs Mind Motion and Apollo at Fattoria E Mare Restaurant & Lounge in Burlingame on Feb. 6. Tickets range from $32.64 to $2,069.95 for a 20-person VIP room.
Nightclub 1015 in San Francisco will feature a pair of events on Feb. 7, a game-viewing party hosted by hit R&B producer Jermaine Dupri and an afterparty from Atlanta rapper T.I.; tickets to Dupri's event are $45-100, while admission to T.I.'s party that night is $60-150.
The latter will have competition a few miles away from rapper Rick Ross and DJ/producer Lil Jon. Ross, who is from Miami, will host a Super Bowl afterparty event with music by Atlanta's DJ Drama on Feb. 7 at 10 p.m. at Roccapulco; the club is extending hours to stay open until 4 a.m. Tickets range from $53.74 for general admission to $8,249.95 for VIP entry and bottle service for a group of 12. Meanwhile Atlanta's Lil Jon plans to spin at Temple on Feb. 7 at 10 p.m.; tickets are $50-150.
