The Super Bowl will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.
While not many details about the post-Super Bowl Fallon show are available, it's safe to say there will be a slew of football jokes, some hilarious games like "box of lies" and a lip sync battle or two, and (fingers crossed) some cameos from A-listers.
Ticket information has not yet been released. Same goes for the secret to Fallon's charisma and perpetual amusement. So, we wait.
