Although not an official announcement of the NFL, many are saying that the musical selection should’ve featured Atlanta-based artists.
Variety reports, citing multiple sources, the band is set to be the big act for the NFL’s biggest game, set for February 3. The NFL released a statement punting on that.”It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show,” a league rep said. “We are continuing to work with (longtime sponsor) Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.”
