Well, I'm for getting performers with some local ties such as Jimmy Buffet, Harry Connick Jr, Dr. John, Neville Brothers, Irma Thomas. Put some New Orleans flavor in it since we will be playing in it.

Yeah, I agree ... when the SuperBowl is being put on by a host city like New Orleans, there's a lot of local flavour that would make for an entertaining halftime show ... Indianapolis, not so much, hire a big-name act when the SuperBowl is hosted by a city like Indy with little culture ... a Mardi Gras theme would be cool with a big parade, costumes, dancers ... it's probably been done before, but why not stay with a good thing?

There honestly isn't anything more boring on television than marching bands at halftime.

Should be a celebration of New Orleans music then the last act should be the Ying Yang Twins since we will be in the SB.

The answer to this question is sooooooo simple:

The question: Who should perform at halftime at the next super bowl?

The obvious answer: Van mother ****ing Halen.

Eddie and Diamond Dave and Alex are at the top of their game. People have been DYING for it to happen, and "A Different Kind of Truth" does not disappoint. It's the right band at the right time and is precisely targeted to the Super Bowl demographic. Oh, and Wolfie is no Anthony, but he doesn't suck, and he's Valerie's son after all, so, I mean...how could it NOT be Van Halen?

You're welcome...

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

Coldplay gets it I will not watch the SB unless Saints are in.

Coldplay is the most over-rated GARBAGE.

I rather any of the others over this crap...
