Coldplay Are Tipped To Headline The 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show

Written by Emmy Mack on December 4, 2015

Coldplay will reportedly headline the 2016 Super Bowl halftime spectacular, becoming the first band to do so in six years.

According to The Wall Street Journal, a formal announcement will be made later today to coincide with the release of the band’s seventh studio LP, A Head Full Of Dreams.

The last time a non-pop act played the big-ticket slot was The Who back in 2010. Since then, the NFL has booked a range of pop heavyweights to entertain the monster crowds at the year’s biggest game, including Katy Perry and Beyoncé.

And speaking of Queen Bey, she’s reportedly “in talks” to make a guest cameo during Coldplay’s set, while Bruno Mars is also tipped to perform. They will likely perform some tracks off the band’s new record A Head Full Of Dreams, which is out today.

Beyoncé appears on the most recently-released track off the album, dubbed Hymn For The Weekend.

Check out their clubby collab premiering via the BBC, below.
