Capone’s Dinner & Show will be closed on Super Bowl Sunday, February 11, 2024.

For the past 9 years, me (Al) and the gang at Capone’s Dinner & Show did NOT offer a Super Show as an alternative to the Super Bowl. The mobsters took a much-appreciated break. The gang is doin’ it again. We will be closed on Sunday, February 11, 2024.

Instead of a Kissimmee dinner show that’ll knock your socks off, the wise guys & gals have put together some fun statistics that jus’ might knock the wind right outta yous. The figures behind how much money Americans spend for the big event will make even the Big Bosses squirm. We’re talkin’ billions on merchandise (food, team apparel and TVs), billions on bets, an average game ticket price is $12,240 and many more brow-raising expenses. Here are some other interestin’ facts ‘bout Sunday’s game.

Super Bowl LVIII

  • The game will be played between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, the first Super Bowl since Super Bowl LV to feature the defending champion, which, coincidentally, was also the Chiefs.
  • This marks the 49ers’ eighth Super Bowl appearance.
  • Super Bowl LVIII will be the Chiefs’ sixth Super Bowl appearance and fourth in the past five seasons, all under head coach Andy Reid, and featuring quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce.
  • This game is a rematch of Super Bowl LIV, in which the Chiefs defeated the 49ers, 31–20. At the time of this post, the 49ers are favored by 2 points.

Super Bowl Ticket Sales

  • Ticket prices for Super Bowl 58 are higher than usual, up 38% from last year’s prices, according to SeatGeek data. The current get-in price, or cheapest ticket, is listed at $6,640, while the average resale ticket price is at $12,240. – Unlike our Kissimmee dinner show, there are no half-price tickets.
  • In 1967 championship game tickets topped out at $12 each, and the “secondary market” consisted only of ticket scalpers outside the L.A. Coliseum.

Advertising, TV & Radio

  • Viewership in the U.S. is estimated at well over 100 million people.
  • A 30-second spot for an ad during Super Bowl LVIII is reportedly selling for $6.5 to $7 million, remaining steady with the previous year’s game. A 30-second commercial for the first Super Bowl played in 1967, cost a mere $37,500.
  • CBS Sports announced that it will carry a youth-oriented alternate broadcast of the game on Nickelodeon. Commercials for products inappropriate for youth (such as alcohol, gambling, and R-rated films) will not be broadcast. 15 ads slots were sold to replace the ads that will broadcast on regular TV.
  • Even in its worst year, the game is the most-watched program on American TV by a large margin.

Social Media

  • One Super Bowl ad can drive 110 million social impressions during the game.
  • 2015 currently holds the record for social media with 65 million people posting about the game on Facebook and 28.4 million tweets during the live telecast.  (by the way, yous can follow me too @alcaponesshow).
  • Well over 50% of Super Bowl viewers say they will use at least one social media platform during the game.


  • According to the National Retail Federation, 103.5 million people planned to throw or attend a Super Bowl Party last year. And 17.8 million were headed to bars or restaurants to watch the big game. (One more reason the gang is not puttin’ on a show Sunday night).
  • Super Bowl is the second-largest food consumption day in America. We eat more food, only on Thanksgiving.
  • 1.3 billion chicken wings will be consumed (four wings for every American).
  • Next to the Fourth of July more beer is consumed on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year.
  • Chips are the snack of choice with 75%, followed by dips/salsa/guacamole (67%), pizza (47%), chicken wings (42%), and nachos (22%).
  • An estimated 12.5 million pizzas will be ordered on Super Bowl Sunday, which is a 40% increase over “any given Sunday” during the year.

Other Fun & Interesting Stats

  • Super Bowls are denoted with Roman numerals and have been since Super Bowl V in 1971. The exception was a few years ago when the NFL promoted it as Super Bowl 50, not Super Bowl L.
  • Americans expected to bet $23.1B on the 2024 contest.
  • Country music singer Reba McEntire will perform the U.S. national anthem, rapper Post Malone will perform “America the Beautiful” and Andra Day will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
  • R&B and pop singer Usher will headline the halftime show.
  • Win or lose, players on both teams at the Super Bowl get paid. Each player on the winning team will earn around $250,000 (including playoff-round bonuses), while players on the losing team end up with about $185,000.

After all those wings bein’ devoured and money changin’ hands, a fun night at Capone’s will be in order. Regardless if your team wins or loses, a night with me and the gang is a great way to recover after a big game hangover. Reserve your tickets at half off and enjoy savin’ money instead of shellin’ it out like yous jus’ did on the football contest.

Capone’s Dinner & Show is open most nights (but not on Super Bowl Sunday). After takin’ Sunday AND Monday off, the guys and gals will be super-charged to put on a hilarious show. I’ll see yous soon!
