Super Bowl 52 between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots is set to be played Feb. 4, 2018. It will take place in a dome just like Super Bowl 51 did … but much further north, where the weather outside the venue won’t be as inviting.
Justin Timberlake will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018.
Timberlake has won ten Grammys and numerous other awards. This will be Timberlake’s third time performing on the Super Bowl Halftime stage, giving him the distinction of having the most appearances by an individual entertainer. He previously performed at Super Bowls XXXV and XXXVII.
Timberlake joins an esteemed list of recent halftime acts including Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Beyonc, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Madonna, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, U2 and more.
The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show is the most-watched musical event of the year. Last year’s show was the most-watched musical event of all-time across all platforms and the most-watched Super Bowl Halftime performance in history through broadcast and digital channels, reaching more than 150 million unique people, garnering more than 80 million views and totaling 260 million minutes watched.
The game was scoreless at halftime before the National team pulled away. Stanford fullback Daniel Marx followed an American fumble with a 1-yard touchdown run, and Washington State kicker Erik Powell connected on a 22-yard field goal. Apke then returned an interception 56 yards to set up Howard’s Anthony Philyaw for a 12-yard TD run.
The second-half offense for the National team helped erase the sting of a scoreless first half that included eight punts, three turnovers and three missed field goal attempts.
I was very, very frustrated,” Martz said. There were some things out there that I didn’t adjust to.”
The American team played without a true field goal kicker and was forced to use Eastern Washington punter Jordan Dascalo on kicks. He missed on field goals of 43, 27 and 24 yards.
