In SummaryThe 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show in Los Angeles will feature a band of A-list stars on the biggest stage in sports.
The stars will align in Los Angeles during the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show! Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will take center stage at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA on Feb. 13, 2022, airing on NBC.
The assembled ensemble marks the first time these five multi-award-winning artists will put their dynamic talents on display together. Los Angeles offers a homecoming for Dre, Snoop and Lamar. Dre and Lamar are from Compton, and Snoop (born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.) is from Long Beach.
“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” said Dr. Dre. “I’m grateful to Jay-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.”
This is the first time in almost 30 years the Super Bowl will be held in Los Angeles. The artists collectively have been awarded 43 Grammys throughout their career and received 22 No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200.
The halftime show will also showcase a collaboration between Pepsi and the NFL to support the launch of a new school: Regional School #1. It will become a magnet high school in South Los Angeles which is scheduled to open in 2022. Regional School #1 will join the L.A. Unified School District.
Regional School #1 will offer “a unique educational model focused on the theme of Integrated Design, Technology, and Entrepreneurship.”
“This effort will help develop and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators,” Los Angeles Unified Interim Superintendent Megan K. Reilly said. “We are excited about the additional opportunities this partnership will bring to our students.”
