(Atlanta, GA) – After a struggle to solidify a lineup for the halftime show for this year’s Super Bowl, it looks like posters can now be printed as a few acts have signed on to be this year’s entertainment for Super Bowl 53.
Many performers stayed away from the offer as fallout continues over the treatment of Colin Kaepernick. But, now it has been confirmed that Maroon 5 will take center stage at the halftime show at Super Bowl LIII.
The NFL made the announcement today that the three-time Grammy Award-winning rock group will in fact headline the show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on February 3rd. Other artists joining Maroon 5 are Atlanta native and half of hip-hop super group Outkast, Big Boi and Grammy-nominated rapper Travis Scott.
(Atlanta, GA) – Word out of the Super Bowl’s Host city for 2019 claims that the NFL has finally found someone to join Maroon 5 as the halftime entertainment.
According to reports, Travis Scott will bring his Astroworld to the ATL for Super Bowl 53. It’s been a struggle to find anyone willing to sign up following criticism that all Atlanta musicians were overlooked and the continued fallout with how quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been ousted for protesting against the mistreatment of people of color.
Rumors are also hovering over the possibility of Cardi B and Big Boi of Oukast joining the show as well. Cardi B will already be in town that week doing a show with Bruno Mars and Big Boi resides in the ATL and is one half of the super group Outkast and connected to Goodie Mob.
