Maroon 5 Will Perform the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show, According to Reports
There have been a lot of jaw-dropping moments during past Super Bowl halftime shows, and now, according to reports, Maroon 5 will attempt to add to that legacy as the performers for the 2019 show.
Sources told Variety and Billboard that Adam Levine and bandmates Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden, James Valentine, Matt Flynn, PJ Morton, and Sam Farrar will take the stage at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, Georgia, next February. Cardi B and Travis Scott are reportedly in consideration for guest appearances.
Neither Maroon 5 nor the NFL has confirmed the rumors. The NFL told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement, “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.”
Maroon 5 is currently touring to promote their 2017 album, Red Pill Blues. Their recent hits include a collaboration with Cardi B, “Girls Like You, ” and the 2016 track “Don’t Wanna Know,” which featured Kendrick Lamar.
This year’s halftime show featured Justin Timberlake, who performed with a marching band, hundreds of dancers, and even a giant projection of Prince. The “Man of the Woods” singer and his band, The Tennessee Kids, covered older favorites including “Rock Your Body,” “Señorita,” “Sexyback,” “My Love,” and “Cry Me a River,” as well as Timberlake’s 2018 release “Filthy.”
In 2017, Lady Gaga dropped into her Super Bowl performance through the roof and stunned the audience with an incredible synchronized display of 300 drones.
Other past performers include Coldplay, Beyoncé, and Bruno Mars in 2016; Katy Perry, Missy Elliot, and Lenny Kravitz in 2015; Bruno Mars (again) and the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2014; Shania Twain, No Doubt, and Sting in 2003; and Aerosmith, ‘NSYNC, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, and Nelly in 2001. And, of course, in 2004, there was the infamous nip-slip from Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake.
Super Bowl LIII will take place on February 3, 2019, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
