No Super Bowl Halftime Show Next Year?
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — After Beyonce’s amazing performance at halftime at the Super Bowl, who will do the honors next year? How about — nobody!
Next year’s Super Bowl in New Jersey may have no halftime show, because it could be too cold.
Super Bowl XLVIII will be played at MetLife Stadium, the open-air home of the Jets and Giants. It’ll be the first Super Bowl to be played outdoors in cold weather conditions.
Officials can’t figure out how to stage the halftime festivities in the frigid climate, sources told the New York Post.
They’re concerned about both the performers and the crews that have to set up and tear down the stage in just minutes.
Meantime, the Post says that lawyers, league officials and TV executives are trying to figure out protocols for a weather emergency, like a blizzard or ice storm.
Could the Super Bowl be postponed? And who would make the decision? League officials and the Super Bowl host committee declined to comment.
