The State Farm Stadium in Glendale will be hosting Super Bowl LVII on Feb. 12, 2023.

Super Bowl LVII will be played in Glendale a week from Sunday. But leading up to the game, there are all sorts of events — from concerts to parties to a festival hosted by Shaquille O’Neal.

And most of those are happening in Phoenix-area cities other than Glendale. And that means visitors — and their money — will spend a good amount of their time in the Valley in a city other than where the game is being played.

To find out what that means to Glendale, The Show spoke with Glendale City Manager Kevin Phelps.
