Five familiar names will grace the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
This Year’s Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show will be one of the biggest to date. On February 13th, 2022, at SoFi Stadium, the show will feature Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
This will be the first time that all five performers will take the stage together. It will also be the first time in 30 years that the Super Bowl will be hosted in Los Angeles. The event will take place in the newly built stadium and home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.

“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” said Dre in a statement. “I’m grateful to JAY-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.”

Dre spoke out about his excitement due to the fact that he is the link that brought these acts together. He’s known for producing several songs and albums by each performer, most notably, the entirety of Snoop’s debut album, ‘Doggystyle.’
Eminem and Kendrick Lamar spent most of their careers signed to Dre’s Aftermath Records, and each of the artists also featured on Dr. Dre’s albums throughout the span of his career.
