On Sunday, Apple Music, the NFL, and Roc Nation said that Usher will be the main act at the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime show. The game will be played at Las Vegas, Nevada’s Allegiant Stadium on Sunday, February 11, 2024. It will be shown on CBS.
Usher follows Rihanna, who sang at the halftime show in 2023 while she was pregnant, and the all-star team of Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and 50 Cent, who appeared in 2022.
“It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally be able to say that I’ve played at a Super Bowl. Usher said, “I can’t wait to give the world a show that is unlike anything they’ve seen from me before.” “Thank you to the people and everyone else who helped make this chance possible. I hope to see you soon.”
Seth Dudowsky, the NFL’s Head of Music, said, “Usher is an icon whose music has left an indelible mark on culture over the course of his career. We couldn’t be more excited to have him headline this year’s Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show.” “We’re excited to work with Usher, Roc Nation, and Apple Music to give fans another Halftime Show that will go down in history,” they said.
“Usher is the best performer and singer of all time. Since his first show when he was 15, he has been following his own path. “Usher is more than just a great singer and a great dancer. He shows his soul,” said JAY-Z. “His amazing journey has led him to one of the world’s biggest stages. I can’t wait until the magic happens.”
“The Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show is one of the most anticipated music events of the year,” said Oliver Schusser, Apple’s Vice President of Apple Music, Apple TV+, Sports, and Beats. “We’re excited to bring this legendary show to fans all over the world in Spatial Audio, along with tons of exclusive videos, interviews, playlists, and so much more across Apple Music.”
“We’re so proud of what we were able to do with the NFL and Roc Nation last year, and with Usher taking the stage, we’re looking forward to another amazing Halftime Show from one of the world’s best performers of all time.”
