A Show Full of Fun, Celebration and Surprises Planned for the Historic Event
This announcement is just the beginning. Coldplay front man Chris Martin is designing a show that will echo elements of the NFL's On the Fifty campaign -- honoring the past, recognizing the present and looking ahead to the next 50 years, including other special artists. For the first-time ever, Pepsi will give fans behind-the-scenes access to how this monumental show will come together at Pepsi.com.
Coldplay joins an esteemed list of recent halftime acts including Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, Madonna, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, U2 and more.
Coldplay is one of the world's most popular musical acts, selling more than 80 million copies of their six No. 1 albums and garnering eight BRITs. The band's most recent world tour, 2011/12 Mylo Xyloto, was seen by more than three million people in five continents.
Tomorrow, Dec. 4, the band will release their highly anticipated widescreen seventh album, A Head Full Of Dreams -- available worldwide for fans to download on iTunes.
