ATLANTA (CelebrityAccess) — California-based pop-rockers Maroon 5 will provide halftime entertainment during the Super Bowl when it takes place early next year, according to a report in Variety.
Per Variety, the performance was confirmed by two unknown sources, who said that the Adam Levine-fronted band would headline the league’s championship game.
As well, the magazine US Weekly reported similar news, quoting an unidentified source with the band who confirmed they have been offered the gig and have “pretty much” accepted it.
However, Brian McCarthy, a spokesman for the league told Reuters that the NFL “does not have any announcement to make” regarding the halftime show.
The halftime show is one of the most high profile performance events in the U.S., and while ratings for the NFL’s big game were down last year, more than 100 million people tuned in to see Justin Timberlake perform.
The NFL championship game in 2019 will take place in Atlanta on February 3rd.
