The coveted performing spot of the Super Bowl Halftime show seems to have its newest headliner. Maroon 5 has seemingly been chosen to headline the halftime show next February, for Super Bowl LIII.
According to Billboard, Maroon 5 appears to be the choice to headline the show, with Cardi B and Travis Scott rumored to be guest performers. No official comment from the band’s rep has been made, Billboard reports, but the NFL released a statement addressing the speculation. “It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show,” the NFL stated. “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.”
Maroon 5 is currently on tour, promoting their album, Red Pill Blues. A break in the band’s tour schedule seems to support the belief that Maroon 5 could be headlining the Halftime show. The band has also expressed great interest in playing the Super Bowl, with Adam Levine telling Howard Stern in a 2015 interview that the band “very actively wants to play the Super Bowl.”
Super Bowl LIII will air on February 3, 2019, at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.
