On Wednesday, promoter Triller Fight Club announced a star-studded lineup of performers during the April 17 pay-per-view event at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The card is headlined by a boxing match between Paul and Askren.
Among the names set to perform are Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie, Diplo, and Major Lazer. Additionally, Mt. Westmore, a newly comprised hip-hop group featuring rap legends Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too $hort, and E-40 also will perform.
“Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Bert Marcus will lead and direct the creative storytelling for the Triller Fight Club event,” according to a press release.
“Triller has already begun to revolutionize the great American sport of boxing,” Marcus said, in a statement Wednesday. “I’m proud to be taking it to the next level and lead the direction of an unprecedented sporting event through the lens of music entertainment and unmatched behind-the-scenes access, particularly during this time when people haven’t had many chances to have (shared) important cultural experiences.
“This incredible lineup of talent is proof that this ground-breaking new format is craved by fans and artists alike. This event will be unlike anything anyone has seen, think ‘Stranger Things’ meets Tarantino.”
