The NFL has announced that Miley Cyrus will headline the NFL TikTok Tailgate at Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay on February 7.
According to the announcement, the Tailgate will be the on-site pregame hospitality event exclusively for the 7,500 vaccinated health care heroes the NFL invited to attend Super Bowl LV. The league announced last week that around 22,000 fans will be admitted to attend the game — around one-third of the 66,000 capacity of Raymond James Stadium. The NFL has invited 7,500 vaccinated health care workers to the Super Bowl for free. On top of that, there will be 14,500 additional fans who purchased tickets to attend. The league has partnered with TikTok for the tailgate, which is “to invite the world into the league’s premier Super Bowl pregame celebration at the stadium.”

Fans watching from home in the U.S. and Canada can tune into @NFL on TikTok for access to two hours of live, exclusive pregame content. The NFL TikTok Tailgate will feature special guests from the NFL, TikTok creators, surprise musical performances, gameday cooking segments, and much more. The virtual experience will be streamed in full via @NFL on TikTok starting at 2:30PM ET/ 11:30 AM PT, and portions of Cyrus’ performance will be televised in the CBS Super Bowl LV Pregame Show.
The announcement says that the “NFL TikTok Tailgate, along with all Super Bowl-related activities, will be conducted safely,” although it did not provide details.
Cyrus released her seventh full-length album, “Plastic Hearts,” in November.
