Is AC/DC’s Rock Power Headed to the Super Bowl in 2024? Nevada Governor Advocates for It
Nevada Governor Advocates for AC/DC to Rock Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show
The Governor of Nevada, a prominent political figure, has expressed his desire for AC/DC to take the stage at the halftime show of next year’s Super Bowl LVIII. Set to be held at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, on Sunday, February 11, 2024, the event presents an opportunity for the iconic rock band, led by Angus Young, to captivate the world with their performance during the customary halftime spectacle.
Governor Joe Lombardo Voices Support for AC/DC Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show
When questioned by the Las Vegas Review-Journal about his preferred choice for the halftime show, Governor Joe Lombardo confidently stated, “AC/DC. I was going to shout it out. But yes, I’m absolutely serious.” The Governor’s endorsement of the iconic rock band to perform at the 58th Super Bowl underscores his genuine enthusiasm for the prospect of AC/DC electrifying the halftime entertainment.
Historically, the hard rock and metal genres have received relatively limited representation on the grand stage of the National Football League’s (NFL) prestigious Super Bowl halftime show, a spectacle watched by millions worldwide. Pop stars have traditionally taken center stage, with this year’s performance headlined by Rihanna. Even rock enthusiasts were thrilled when Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt received some spotlight time, as he has been a longtime member of Rihanna’s live band.
Notably, the 2023 Super Bowl also featured rock and metal connections through Ozzy Osbourne’s appearance in a TV commercial during the broadcast.
As anticipation builds for the 2024 Super Bowl halftime headliner, an official announcement is anticipated in the coming weeks. Peter O’Reilly, the NFL’s executive vice president of club business, acknowledged their continuous efforts to ensure an engaging and enjoyable show. He emphasized that while the halftime show is crucial, other aspects such as pregame artists, the national anthem, and other performances contribute to the overall musical experience of the event.
The NFL remains committed to evaluating the broader music landscape to curate an inclusive and memorable musical journey throughout the Super Bowl festivities.
