No Halftime Show at Next Super Bowl?
I’ll admit it – Even though I’m not a fan of Beyonce, she did put on a decent halftime show compared to recent years. Ever since the Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction” in 2004, it’s been mostly acts that are way past their prime – The Who, Madonna, Prince, etc.
Next year, thank the Lord, there might not even be a halftime show!
The 2014 Super Bowl will be held at Metlife Stadium in New York City. Why in the hell would you hold the biggest game of the year in a place that is usually freezing when said game normally goes down?
Because of this, The New York Post is reporting that there won’t be a musical performance in 2014 because NFL officials can’t figure out how to erect/tear down a stage and put on a spectacle as seen in years past.
The reason? The high winds that are usually associated with the time of year in New York City along with the freezing cold temperatures. That, coupled with the fact that it takes longer to tear down a stage in the cold.
One official said to the Post: “It’s not only the acts and the singers but [also] the crews that have to put the stage together. You know, the assembly has to be done a certain way. It’s choreographed and rehearsed so it can be assembled and disassembled as fast as possible. And you just can’t assemble the stage and break it down fast enough in the cold.”
Another source said “There’s no plan right now of what to do in its place.”
That’s not just one of the many issues for the 2014 Super Bowl. What if a freak blizzard or massive snow fall happens? The source that talked to the post said the NFL is freaking out claiming “there are a thousand things we didn’t think about.”
We’ll keep you updated as this develops over the next few months.
