Big Boi, Travis Scott to join Ma­roon 5 in Su­per Bowl show

The News & Observer - - Triangle & N.c. -

Big Boi and Travis Scott will join Ma­roon 5 in this year’s Su­per Bowl half­time show.

Ma­roon 5 had been the widely re­ported half­time show act since Septem­ber, but the NFL of­fi­cially an­nounced the band as its head­liner Sun­day. The league says Ma­roon 5 will fea­ture guest artists in­clud­ing Big Boi, the At­lanta-based rap­per from Outkast, and Scott.

Many acts have turned down the half­time show this year in sup­port of Colin Kaeper­nick and other play­ers who have taken a knee dur­ing the na­tional an­them in protest of ra­cial in­jus­tice. An on­line pe­ti­tion urges Ma­roon 5 to with­draw from the gig.

This year’s Su­per Bowl will be broad­cast from Mercedes-Benz Sta­dium in At­lanta by CBS on Feb. 3.
