Music stars Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show next year, the NFL announced Thursday.
The five musicians — who collectively have been awarded 43 Grammys and created 22 No. 1 Billboard albums — will unite on stage for the first time on Feb. 13 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
The show will be produced by Roc Nation, the entertainment company founded by Jay-Z.
In the release announcing the show, Jay-Z said, “Dr. Dre, a musical visionary from Compton, Snoop Dogg, an icon from Long Beach and Kendrick Lamar, a young musical pioneer in his own right, also from Compton, will take center field for a performance of a lifetime.”
The Super Bowl returns to the Los Angeles area for the first time since 1993. It’s the third year of collaboration among the NFL, Pepsi and Roc Nation.
Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Blige and Lamar join a long list of celebrated musicians who have played Super Bowl halftime shows, including Beyoncé, Madonna, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry, Diana Ross, James Brown, U2, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and most recently The Weeknd.
