Grammy award-winning musical sensation Usher will be the headliner of the 2024 Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime show, as per an announcement by the NFL, Roc Nation, and Apple Music on Sunday. The event will take place on February 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, which is just outside of Las Vegas.
What has Usher said about this announcement?
After the announcement, the artist issued a statement: “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.” This is not the first time Usher has performed at the Super Bowl. When Black Eyed Peas headlined the game in 2011, he performed — and saved the day — alongside them. CBS will broadcast this years program live.
