NEW YORK (AP) — Madonna will perform at halftime of the Super Bowl in Indianapolis in February.
NBC, which broadcasts football’s biggest game, announced during the Detroit-New Orleans game Sunday night that the Grammy Award-winning singer will take the stage at Lucas Oil Stadium on Feb. 5.
The Super Bowl halftime show is the most-watched musical event of the year, with more than 162 million in the U.S. watching The Black Eyed Peas’ performance in Dallas last February.
Madonna, a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, joins such acts as Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Prince, U2, Paul McCartney, The Who and the Rolling Stones to perform during recent Super Bowls. She will collaborate with a team from Cirque du Soleil, choreographer Jamie King, and artists from Moment Factory.
