Coldplay to Play 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show
The British rock group -- Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Johnny Buckland and Will Champion -- will make their halftime-show debut at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Feb. 7, 2016. The Super Bowl is a notable tour stop on their forthcoming trek across the globe; Coldplay announced the first string of dates in Europe and Latin America earlier this month.
Expect performances of songs like "Adventure of a Lifetime" and maybe even a Beyonce duet for "Hymn on the Weekend" from their upcoming album, A Head Full of Dreams, due Friday. Per WSJ, the 11-track offering won't be made immediately available on Spotify upon its release, a move that chart-topper Adele recently pulled with her third studio effort, 25.
Coldplay joins the likes of their collaborator Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars, who have headlined previous halftime shows. The NFL is set to officially announce the halftime act on Thursday night (Dec. 3), when the Green Bay Packers take on the Detroit Lions.
Billboard has reached out to the NFL and Coldplay's rep for comment.
