Usher will be the protagonist of the Halftime Show of the 58th Super Bowl, the halftime show of the National Football League American championship final. The show, one of the most anticipated television and musical events of the year, will be organized by the rapper’s Roc Nation agency Jay-Z and from Apple Music and will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Feb. 11, 2024. “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything they’ve ever seen from me before,” said Usher. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity possible. See you very soon”. For the 44-year-old American R&B singer, who in 2011 participated in the Super Bowl Halftime Show as a guest of the Black Eyed Peas, it will be the first experience as the protagonist of the event. “Usher is the ultimate artist and showman. Since his debut at the age of 15, he has charted his own unique path. Beyond his impeccable singing and exceptional choreography, Usher bares his soul,” commented Jay-Z. “His extraordinary journey has taken him to one of the biggest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.”
A STELLAR CAREER AND THE NEW ALBUM
Usher reached out the success in the late nineties, and has since sold over eighty million albums worldwide and won eight Grammy Awards, the main awards of the US recording industry. On the evening of the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show the singer will succeed the all-star lineup composed of Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and 50 Cent, who took the stage in 2022, and Rihanna, who returned to the scene in 2023 after five years of absence. On the Sunday of the grand final the future headliner of the show will also post the new album Coming Homethe first after Hard II Love of 2016.
