Maroon 5 to play Super Bowl halftime

Performing during the famed Super Bowl halftime show would be a dream come true for the band, with Levine telling Howard Stern in 2015 that they "very actively want to play the Super Bowl", but had been on a "short list".

According to Variety, the National Football League has settled on a Halftime Show performer for next year's Super Bowl, and that performer is Maroon 5.

Maroon 5 is reportedly set to take the stage to headline the Super Bowl LIII halftime show, and fans are already getting ready to move like Jagger.

"The offer has been extended and they've pretty much accepted", a source apparently told Us Weekly about the 2019 gig.

Super Bowl LIII will take place February 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.


In Maroon 5, the National Football League has managed to find a wildly inoffensive down-the middle performer who will not ruffle any feathers, and they've done it without digging into their rolodex of classic-rock relics. With just under five months until the big game rolls around, Maroon 5 will have plenty of time to plan the biggest music spectacular EVER.

Justin Timberlake was last year's headliner at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

So, who could Maroon 5 bring out? Plus, with the Super Bowl being in Atlanta, one of the centers of hip-hop and the home of Migos (aka Offset, Cardi's husband) it seems like Maroon 5 would be nuts to NOT include her. In addition, they're not shy about collaborating with other artists. They've teamed with Kendrick Lamar on "Don't Wanna Know", and with SZA on "What Lovers Do".

Maroon 5 certainly has a number of chart-topping hits to get fans pumped for a potential performance.
