Madonna will perform at the Superbowl half-time show on Sunday, February 5.
The NFL and NBC confirmed this morning the production will be ‘imagined’ by Cirque Du Soleil and Jamie King.
“The Bridgestone Super Bowl halftime show is the most-watched musical event of the year. More than 162 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year’s show. The Super Bowl and halftime show will be broadcast worldwide,” the press material stated.
“Madonna joins an esteemed list of recent halftime acts that includes The Black Eyed Peas, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and U2.
“A world class entertainer, singer, songwriter, producer, director and video visionary, Madonna has sold more than 300 million records in the course of her three decade career as the Material Girl.
“She is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Her last tour was the most successful tour by a solo artist in history.”
Madonna is currently in the recording studio working on a new album scheduled to be released next year. Her new film W.E. – which she directed, wrote and produced – will open in February.
