Shaq’s Fun House


Rob Gronkowski might be retired from the NFL, but the former all-pro football player is still in the game during the league’s championsh­ip week.

The four-time Super Bowl winner will host a music festival called “Gronk Beach” in Phoenix on Saturday a day ahead of the big game.

The beach-themed day party features performanc­es by 21 Savage, Lil Jon and Diplo.

After hosting the event in Miami and Las Vegas, Gronkowski said he’s introducin­g a celebrity volleyball pool competitio­n. The event will take place at the Talking Stick Resort — which will host Shaquille O’neal’s “Shaq’s Fun House” on Friday and Sports Illustrate­d’s The Party later Saturday evening.

“This event brings a whole other dynamic to going to a party,” Gronkowski said. “Anyone can go to a party in their basement like high school or college style. But as you get older, you like the theme party now. You like walking in, seeing the beach, seeing the volleyball going on, seeing the stage. It’s like seventh heaven.”

Along with Gronkowski’s event, the days leading up to the Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelph­ia Eagles will include concerts from some of the biggest music stars including Drake, Cardi B, Snoop Dogg, Patti Labelle, Kane Brown and Machine Gun Kelly.

Here’s a look at some of the events during a busy Super Bowl week:

“We want to have a great time. We know every year you have to up your game. It’s like when you win championsh­ips. You know, the first time we did it was a championsh­ip, and it was OK, now we got to do back-to-back. So, we want to remain the best Super Bowl party ever in the history of all Super Bowl parties.” who is eager to meet Hurts. “I’m praying for the Eagles to win.” a free party so you can have that Super Bowl experience.”
