Every year, fans of football—and even those who don't care about the sport—look forward to the half-time show. Last year, Justin Timberlake performed a medley of his greatest hits.
Now, there's reportedly a band for the Super Bowl LIII half-time show. Maroon 5 has been chosen as the headlining act for the show, which will air live on February 3, 2019.
The band, which is headed by "The Voice" judge Adam Levine, will head to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, for the show, according to Us Weekly. Sources confirmed to them that the group has agreed to headline the halftime show.
“The offer has been extended and they’ve pretty much accepted,” the source told reporters.
Maroon 5 is currently on tour playing material from their 2017 album Red Pill Blues. However, they don't have any tour dates scheduled for early February.
This is a dream come true for Levine and the band. In 2015, Levine called playing the Super Bowl a major goal.
“We very actively want to play the Super Bowl," he said.
There is no word on who will be joining them on the stage. Half-time shows often feature guest appearances or collaborations.
As TV Guide points out, Maroon 5 have fewer top 40 hits than previous acts who have played the show. They will also be unlikely to have new music by that time.
Neither the band nor has the NFL or Super Bowl organizers have responded to the report.
