During last night’s Thursday Night Football contest between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions, it was announced by the NFL that Coldplay will perform at Super Bowl 50. The British rock band will take over the entertainment duties for the highly-anticipated Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show.
More from the NFL:
Global superstars COLDPLAY, winners of seven Grammy Awards, will perform at the PEPSI SUPER BOWL 50 HALFTIME SHOW on CBS Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016, the NFL announced today during halftime of the Thursday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions on CBS and NFL Network.
This announcement is just the beginning.
