After months of speculation, Maroon 5 has confirmed it will headline the Super Bowl halftime show Feb. 3 in Atlanta, Ga.
The guys posted a one-minute Tweet captioned #SBLIII (53). It showed concert footage of the group with Travis Scott and Big Boi, who will appear as special guests during the show.
“Maroon 5’s appearance will follow Justin Timberlake’s unexceptional performance last year and Lady Gaga’s standout showcase the year before that.” – CBC Sports
According to Wikipedia:
As early as September 2018, multiple sources had reported that Maroon 5 were to headline the Super Bowl LIII halftime show, but the NFL was yet to make an official announcement. In October 2018, it was reported that Pink and Rihanna had each declined an offer to perform, the former because the negotiation process was too lengthy for her taste, and the latter due to her support of Colin Kaepernick. In December, Billboard reported that Houston-based hip-hop musician Travis Scott was to make a guest appearance.
