Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar to play the Super Bowl

The halftime show for next year’s Super Bowl is shaping up to be unmissable, thanks to performances from Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.

The SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, will be home to the showstopping event on Sunday, February 13, 2022. These five icons have never performed together at the same time before, but the supergroup will be making their debut at the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show, and it’s hard not to be frothing at the mouth in excitement already.

Dre cryptically teased the event, saying, “I’m extremely excited to share the stage with my friends for the #PepsiHalftime Show. This will introduce the next saga of my career… Bigger and Better than Ever!!!”
Eminem got in on the act, posting, “Dre day in February? I’m there! #PepsiHalftime Show.”

“Artists like Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg were at the forefront of the West Coast hip hop revolution, so to be able to bring them back to LA, where it all began alongside Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will prove to be an epic, unforgettable celebration of the impact hip hop has today,” said Todd Kaplan, Pepsi’s VP of marketing.

He added: “The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show has become a landmark cultural moment, bringing about some of the most iconic performances over the years – from JLo and Shakira to Lady Gaga to The Weeknd – and we are thrilled to bring together such an incredible array of talented, record-breaking musicians to put on a performance for the ages.”

It’s going to be a tough ask for Dre’s motley crew to outshine The Weeknd’s performance this year, but there’s enough talent between them to put on a wild spectacle.
