The hearts and minds of the Americans are set to be blown as the SUPER BOWL 2019 – perhaps the most anticipated event of 2019 USA after the presidential elections – peeks and gives us the glimpse of the halftime show performers!
From being the drummer for legendary grunge band Nirvana, and now the frontman for the Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl, has mentioned multiple times that he has been approached by the Super Bowl committee for the halftime show. He has confirmed with the Los Angeles radio station KROQ in a new interview that he has met with representatives for the Super Bowl halftime show gig and we couldn’t be more excited!
The famous halftime show is a hot topic of discussion for the last decade ever since the “small” world of NFL was opened to the entire world through the internet. Now it’s a national sport even for the USA, the Northern America as well as the European and Asian countries as they ponder over the gigantic team spirit of the game and the massive advertising that lushes around it.
Many pop artists such as Beyoncé, have performed during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show which not only rock the continental USA but as also been a whirl around the world, especially through YouTube.
Early Super Bowls featured a halftime show consisting of marching bands from local colleges or high schools or simply sang the national anthem of the United States. These days however the times have changed and the pop artists are taking over the 30 minutes of Super Bowl, the halftime, to entertain their fellow fans as well as cheer the crowd into a roar!
The Super Bowl Sunday has evolved into an unofficial American holiday. With state parties around and trade fairs, it all curls into a huge day of celebration for the Americans. The week prior to the game is highlighted by extensive media buildup and a festival atmosphere in the host city. The game itself is accompanied by elaborate pregame and halftime ceremony – the entertainment mojo.
The halftime show also attracts a large number of advertisers, brands from all over the world to make the best of their time and to present their brand. Often the brands pitch against each other for the massive build up before the super bowl and this has turned into another industry itself. The halftime industry!
The Super Bowl 2019 is just around the corner and the gossips have already hit the mainstream media.
WHO WILL ROCK THE HALFTIME 2019?
While the location and the dates are already out – psst it’s on Sunday, February 3, 2019, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia – it’ll be the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, 30 minutes of wild entertainment to catch a break from the games!
The spirit of the halftime show is always rocking, hence a lot of bands performing at the show are either rock bands, but recently there have been plenty pop artists as well to stand for the diversity of the great American Music Industry. This includes Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, the Rolling Stones, the Black Eyed Peas, No Doubt, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and Katy Perry. The famous UK band Coldplay played a snippet of “Clocks” during a video montage of past Super Bowl halftime and national anthem performances, including those by Katy Perry, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and so all the other performers.
The vibes are to unite all the Americans as they stand in that stadium defending their teams at the same time cherishing their game and enjoying the spirit of the Super Bowl.
