The 2016 Super Bowl 50 takes place February 7, 2016, and gets underway at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. While the two top seeds from NFC and AFC, Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos respectively, square off for the National Football League (NFL) championship, the Super Bowl 2016 halftime show is also highy anticipated. The British rock band Coldplay — formed in 1996 by lead vocalist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland –, Bruno Mars, and the “Queen B” Beyonce Knowles headline this year’s much-awaited show.
The 2016 Super Bowl 50 game will be telecast live by CBS, with live streaming online available through the CBSSports.com. The NFL’s golden anniversary of the Super Bowl kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Central Time (6:30 p.m. Eastern Time), which would start the Pepsi halftime show somewhere around 7 p.m. CT (8 p.m. ET).
Like we’ve mentioned above, Beyonce is returning to the Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show as Coldplay’s special guest. PepsiCo has confirmed to The Associated Press on January 7th that the 34-year-old superstar will perform at the February 7 show at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Last month, Coldplay has formally announced that they would be gracing the 2016 NFL Super Bowl 50 halftime show.
Beyonce headlined the 2013 Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII halftime show at the Superdome in New Orleans, where she was reunited and joined by her all-girls Destiny Child’s bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. While Bruno Mars was the headliner for Super Bowl XLVIII one year later in 2014.
Queen B and the Coldplay has recently collaborated on the British band’s newest album, “A Head Full of Dreams.”
