The dream team is coming to the Super Bowl.
The NFL has announced that Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar will headline the 2022 Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. in February.
“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” Dr. Dre said in a statement. “I’m grateful to JAY-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.”
The halftime telecast will be produced by DPS with Roc Nation and Jesse Collins serving as executive producers, and Hamish Hamilton serving as director.
“On February 13, 2022, at the Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, CA, in the new SoFi Stadium, 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, said Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter. “They will be joined by the lyrical genius, Eminem and the timeless Queen, Mary J. Blige. This is the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. This is history in the making.”
Back in May, Snoop said his dream was to play the halftime show with Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and 50 Cent.
“Hopefully the NFL will be smart and make the right decision. It’s in Inglewood, Calif., and it will make the most sense in the world,” he told Yahoo!
The Super Bowl will return to Los Angeles for the first time in 49 years on Feb. 13, 2022. In recent years, performers have included The Weeknd, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Maroon 5, and Justin Timberlake.
