Fans everywhere are squealing, as well as probably fainting, after hearing the official announcement that Maroon 5 has been confirmed as part of this year’s Super Bowl halftime event, sponsored by Pepsi. I mean how freaking awesome is that!
The band got the call, was offered the gig, and jumped on it. Adam Levine, frontman for the group, stated that Maroon 5 had been on the shortlist of possible performers for years, but finally, this year was the magic year.
With the band currently on tour, promoting their new tracks from their 2017 album, Red Pill Blues, fans are sure to hear a few of those songs as well as their previous fan all-time favorites mixed in for good measure.
Being asked to perform the halftime event at the Super Bowl has become one of the highest honors a performer can have bestowed upon them. Many of today’s most famous artists have performed in the past including the likes of Prince, Lady Gaga, and just last year Justin Timberlake.
Its worth noting that whenever the halftime performing group is announced, there are always those who speak out in opposition. However, before Maroon 5 was even officially announced to perform at the February 3rd event, fellow musician Bruno Mars begged the league to go with a hip-hop artist this year.
On the upside, we very well could see a surprise appearance by none other than Cardi B. She has a song that the sang with the group, on their latest album, titled “Girls Like You.”
An NFL spokesman was reported as stating:
“It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime show. We are continuing to work with Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.”
