Pop Eater is reporting that we’ll be seeing will.i.am and his merry band of music-makers will be headlining this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. Fans have had their fingers crossed for the announcement ever since Fergie was spotted making the Super Bowl party rounds last winter in Miami.
The “I Got a Feeling” singers’ big news was announced just days before the release of their next album, “The Beginning,” slated for a November 30th drop. After some rigorous promo, BEP will surely go into rehearsals for the Feb 7th football extravaganza.
“They could have picked anybody,” will.i.am told Rolling Stone magazine. “But it says something that they picked us.”
How humble of him! Everybody loves a modest man, amirite?
We’re more excited to see who will make a guest appearance on the famously well-done Super Bowl ads!
Will YOU watch Super Bowl XLV?
U2 will be headlining the 40th Glastonbury music festival in England next summer, reports CBC. The Irish band will take a break from its North American tour to appear at the festival for the first time on June 25.
“At last the biggest band in the world is going to do the best festival in the world,” said Michael Eavis, head of the festival. “Nothing could be better for our 40-year party, and there are even more surprises in the pipeline.”
