The 2016 Super Bowl will feature Coldplay, who dropped a new album in early December.
Update (January 7, 2016): Entertainment Tonight reports Beyoncé will be appearing during Coldplay’s Half Time Show. Presumably they’ll perform “Hymn For The Weekend,” a song on Coldplay’s new album that Beyoncé features on. Listen below:
Queen B is no stranger to the Super Bowl stage — she helmed the game’s Half Time Show in February 2013.
Original story (December 3): Super Bowl 50 will take place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Sunday, February 7. Coldplay’s Half Time Show will obviously be used to promote their new album A Head Full of Dreams and their first single “Adventure of a Lifetime.”
The quartet, made up by Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, and Will Champion, will also be celebrating their 20th anniversary.
CBS has already announced that the 2016 Super Bowl will be followed by a live episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert — it’ll be the first time the late night talk show host will be presenting a live broadcast of his CBS show. It’s also the first time a late-night series has ever aired in the post-Super Bowl slot, according to the network.
Katy Perry and Missy Elliott were 2015’s Super Bowl Half Time performers.
