Sources Say Super Bowl Halftime Act Is Set

Sources Say Super Bowl Halftime Act Is Set

So, of course, fans were not particularly pleased with the Maroon 5 report. That guy's name is Adam Levine, and though he's become a TV personality, he's also still a talented musician. The band itself, fronted by The Voice coach Adam Levine, has not commented, but Levine has in the past made it clear he'd love to perform there.

They're one of the most popular bands on the planet for a reason, and it's not Levine's reality competition gig.

Look, this isn't hating on Maroon 5.

Thought goes into where it's played, the parties around it, and of course, the halftime show. If you don't like their music, that's totally fine-but it doesn't mean they don't deserve the opportunity.

A spokesperson for the National Football League released a statement to ET regarding who is being considered to perform on Super Bowl Sunday. Mars has co-headlined the show twice in recent years, as has Beyoncé, while Justin Timberlake has appeared three times, most notoriously in 2004 when he had a literal hand in Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction".

The group is now touring in support of their 2017 album Red Pill Blues, with their final show of 2018 taking place in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve.

According to emails sent out by Ticketmaster, the concert layout of Madison Square Garden had to be overhauled to accommodate Maroon 5's two shows being played there next month. The NFL should include local musicians in every halftime show, and Atlanta has a lot of excellent choices. As most people know, a Super Bowl Halftime show can often only be as good as the special guests who join.

Also, seriously, who listens to Maroon 5 voluntarily?

The NFL has tabbed pop-rock mainstays Maroon 5 to perform during halftime of Super Bowl LIII on February 3 in Atlanta, two sources tell Variety's Jem Aswad. In addition, they're not shy about collaborating with other artists.

The point is, Maroon 5 is blah and boring and not very Atlanta.

And they've wanted to do this for years.
