Beyonce to Join Coldplay for Super Bowl Halftime Show

Beyonce will join Coldplay for the halftime concert at Super Bowl 50 in February, Associated Press has confirmed.

The megastar headlined the halftime show herself in 2013. She and and Coldplay collaborated on the song “Hymn for the Weekend,” which appears on Coldplay’s latest album, “A Head Full of Dreams.” Both Beyonce and Coldplay have publicly spearheaded Tidal, which posits itself as more artist-focused than competing streaming services.

The Super Bowl stage has long been a hot platform for collaborative performances. When Beyonce headlined, she was briefly joined by Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Last year, Katy Perry’s performance was bolstered by cameos by Missy Elliott and Lenny Kravitz (not to mention the Internet-beloved “Left Shark”).

It was previously announced that Bruno Mars might also appear with Chris Martin and the boys. He and the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed at halftime in 2014.

NFL rep Brian McCarthy said via email, “We have said there will be multiple artists in the show. We have announced Coldplay so far. We are not commenting on any of the stars that have been linked to the Pepsi halftime show including Rihanna, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Bruno, GnR, Adele, or Justin Timberlake.”

CBS declined to comment on the news, first reported by Entertainment Tonight.

Super Bowl 50 will unfold at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. on Sunday, Feb. 7, airing live on CBS. Pepsi produced the halftime spectacle.
