Shaquille O’Neal bring­ing Shaq’s Fun House to Su­per Bowl

The Standard Journal - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Shaquille O’Neal has been to enough par­ties be­fore Su­per Bowls to know that he can do much bet­ter.

“I’ve been to a mil­lion Su­per Bowl par­ties the past 15 years, and they’re all bor­ing,” O’Neal said. “So this is At­lanta, I’m bring­ing the party to At­lanta. I wanted to do some­thing big, so I called my friends.”

He’s bring­ing “Shaq’s Fun House” to At­lanta on Feb. 1 with a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing, from the Mi­gos, a Waf­fle House pop-up diner and a Fer­ris wheel to even Cirque Du Soleil fea­tur­ing a spe­cial ap­pear­ance by the NBA Hall of Famer him­self.

“There’s two things that bring peo­ple closer to­gether de­spite what’s go­ing on in the coun­try,” O’Neal said. “That’s sports and mu­sic, and I hap­pen to dom­i­nate in both. So when I was putting this to­gether I was say­ing, ‘OK, I want part mu­sic fes­ti­val. I want a car­ni­val. I want a cir­cus, and I want to do it on a nice, big plat­form, and I want to have fun do­ing it.”
