The Super Bowl should be quite the spectacle in February.
It will be held in Los Angeles for the first time in three decades, in the opulent and over-the-top SoFi Stadium, which cost over $6 billion to build.
The NFL had to assemble a halftime act that is worthy of the whole incredible vibe that will be taking place inside this venue, and it appears they have.
Pepsi and the NFL announced that the half time show will have a strong L.A. presence, with local stars Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg on the card.
Joining them will be Mary J. Blige and Eminem, to round out what is a very eclectic group of entertainers.
Are they all (except Lamar) past their prime? By at least a decade? Well, yeah, but the show is only 20 minutes or so, and with five performers they should be able to rock their hits and put on a heck of a show.
Here’s what Dr. Dre tweeted after the lineup was announced.
“I’m extremely excited to share the stage with my friends. This will introduce the next saga of my career… Bigger and Better than Ever!!!”
It will be Dr. Dre’s first big show since he suffered a brain aneurysm earlier in 2021.
Snoop said he’s been dreaming of performing with his friend Dre at an L.A. Super Bowl,. In fact, here’s what he said back in 2020.
“I ain’t never played the Super Bowl. I’m waiting for 2022, when they bring it to L.A., I think it should be Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. Y’all heard it, CBS? Get it together. Get y’all money together. Y’all got a couple of years to get it together. Hello!”
The big game is set for February 13th.
