Moments ago, the NFL announced that the five-song ensemble will topline the coveted on February 13 2022 live from the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
Produced by the NFL, Pepsi, and Roc Nation, the spectacle marks the first time the Super Bowl will have been held in Los Angeles for 30 years.
Dre, who is the glue between the acts – having produced several songs for each – said in a statement:
“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career. I’m grateful to JAY-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.”
PepsiCo senior VP Media, Sports, and Entertainment Adam Harter added:
“This year we are blowing the roof off the concept of collaboration. Along with the NFL and Roc Nation, we continue to try and push the limits on what fans can expect during the most exciting 12 minutes in music; this year’s superstar line-up is sure to deliver a mind-blowing performance.”
Suffice to say, this was definitely one of the most unpredictable line-ups in recent Super Bowl memory. We’re buzzed to see what the quintet cook up. Are you?
