The biggest gig on earth, the Super Bowl is almost with us. And depending on your take about men in tight spandex skipping around in a bold attempt to pass the ball down a field, it would be right to assert that Super Bowl is:
- The biggest sporting event of the year
- An opportunity to consume handfuls of queso and pigs in a blanket without anyone judging you
- All of the above
Nonetheless, the Super Bowl is a huge deal worldwide, particularly in the US. See, the NFL championship game is usually the most viewed music-performance event of any given year. Last year, during the Super Bowl XXXVIII edition, the gig pulled an astounding crowd, and it estimated that more than 106 M tuned in to watch Justin Timberlake return to Houston Texas.
The 2019 Super Bowledition is likely to pull equally huge numbers judging from the past trends.Nonetheless, there’s a lot of gossip flying around about who going toperform, which teams will play and what will go down.
On that note, here’s a quick guide on the Super Bowl 2019. The guide explores where the Super Bowl
When and Where Will Super Bowl 2019 Take Place
The Super Bowl Halftime Show will take place on February 3, 2019. The event will be held at iconic Mercedes-Benz Stadium. It will be the first time the Super Bowl is hosted at the Mercedes-Benz, Atlanta stadium after launching in 2017. However, Georgia city has hosted two Super Bowls at the Georgia Dome, with the last event happening in 2000.
The event will kick-off at approximately 18:30 ET in the United States, and for the European (UK) viewers, that should be just before 01:00 am. However, the exact time will depend on the various factors including speed of the game. Therefore, it`s worth tuning in a tad earlier, just in case the game moves too quickly.
Which Teams Will Duke it Out?
Currently, we do know the teams that will play in the finals but will update you once the playoffs happen. However, there has been rife speculation that New England Patriots are the favorites to return to the Super Bowl, in what would be their third straight super bowl. Other favorites include Steelers, Eagles, Vikings, and Saints. Whichever team makes it to the finals, you should expect a thrilling clash.
The Half Time Show
Besides the exhilarating game, the halftime show is yet another segment to look forward to. And if you’re among those who watch super bowls because of the halftime show, you’re probably wondering whos going to grace the stadium. Well, unconfirmed reports indicate that have been made on various publications including the new york times, and billboard indicates that the Maroon 5 band will headline the halftime show.
The uncertainty surrounding the halftime artists is not a surprise since the NFL has a tradition of keeping star performer under wraps and allowing speculation about the performers. The speculation is further underlined by the fact that the Maroon 5 band rep declined to comment when asked about the news. Nonetheless, the speculation is all that makes the super bowl worth looking forward to. You’re always kept guessing on whos going to perform.

Considering that Maroon 5 has previously collaborated with SZA, Lamar, and Gwen Stefani, there is a high probability that they may be offered a slot too.
The Half Time Show Drama
As it turns, Maroon 5 were not NFL`s first choice for the halftime show. Reportedly, Rihanna pulled the ultimate boss move and turned down the NFL`s advances on performing at the Half Time Show with a “No, thanks.” A reason for the turn down was to support Colin Kaepernick who`s currently embroiled in a lawsuit with NFL for the kneeling controversy. Though it`s a huge opportunity to pass considering the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and Michael Jackson have all performed during the Half Time Show, Riri has her reasons.
