Ma­roon 5 to head­line Su­per Bowl half­time show

Penticton Herald - - OPINION/ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — The NFL on Sun­day ended months of un­cer­tainty by of­fi­cially an­nounc­ing Ma­roon 5, Big Boi and Travis Scott as the per­form­ers at this year’s Su­per Bowl half­time show.

Ma­roon 5 had been the widely re­ported half­time show act since Septem­ber, but the NFL didn’t con­firm the band as its head­liner un­til Sun­day. The league said Ma­roon 5 will be joined by Big Boi, the At­lanta-based rap­per from Outkast, and Scott. Typ­i­cally one of the most fiercely sought gigs in mu­sic, the Su­per Bowl half­time show has this year been the sub­ject of boy­cott and protest.

Nu­mer­ous acts have turned down the NFL in sup­port of Colin Kaeper­nick and other play­ers who have taken a knee dur­ing the na­tional an­them in protest of racial in­jus­tice.
