Report: Maroon 5 Tap Travis Scott As Super Bowl Halftime Guest

Published: Thursday 20th Dec 2018 by Sam

This year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show left a lot to be desired and it seems as though next year’s is wilfully following suit.

Because polarlizing headliners Maroon 5 have reportedly settled on an equally left-field guest — Travis Scott.

Details below…

Several sources connected to 2019’s Halftime spectacle have stressed the difficulty Adam Levine and co have had securing featured performers – thanks largely to the backlash surrounding the NFL’s response to Colin Kaepernick‘s kneeling movement. A movement rooted in raising awareness of racial justice Black civilians are facing in the US and beyond.

Word has it the group weren’t even the first acts approached to perform – with both Rihanna and Pink rejecting on similar grounds.

However, per TMZ, the group have on-boarded Travis Scott to join them on February 3rd at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The same report adds that ‘Girls Like You’ collaborator Cardi B is still considering the gig, while there’s also talk of Outkast star Big Boi joining the mix.

***********

There’s no denying the spot is a major coup for Scott, who is enjoying huge success with #1 smash ‘Sicko Mode’ and hit album ‘Astroworld.’

But it’s not the most exciting performance prospect, is it?

Adam and co need more people and even then we’re not sure this won’t be the mess it’s shaping up to be.

We wish them the best.

Your thoughts?
