Madonna to perform at Super Bowl halftime show
Madonna is going to do the Super Bowl.
That’s right. The singer-turned-director will perform in the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show on NBC at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Feb. 5, the NFL and NBC announced during Sunday Night Football.
She has partnered with a creative team from Cirque du Soleil, Jamie King, and multimedia artists from Moment Factory, to create what is being billed by the NFL and NBC as “a signature performance.”
Madonna joins a superstar list of recent halftime acts that includes The Black Eyed Peas, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and U2.
Madonna’s directorial project, W.E., a drama based on the romance between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, is out in limited release on Dec. 9. It opens wide in February.
