The Super Bowl LVI halftime show will feature a strong Los Angeles hip hop influence through West Coast legends Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar.
Along with Los Angeles favorites, Dr. Dre will bring his famous labelmate Eminem and frequent collaborator Mary J. Blige.
“I’m very excited to share the stage with my friends for the #PepsiHalftime Show,” Dr. Dre said via Twitter on Thursday. “This will present the next saga of my career.”
The West Coast suite is suitable for the host building for Super Bowl 2022, the newly created SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
While the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers played at the new stadium last season, this 2021-2022 season is their first in front of fans, due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. the stadium hosts the Super Bowl.
This will be Dr. Dre’s first performance after his health problem in January, where he was hospitalized for a brain aneurysm. The legendary producer was sent home later that month and was most recently seen at Los Angeles veteran DJ Kurt “Big Boy” Alexander’s September Walk of Fame induction ceremony.
The music group All Start has a total of 43 Grammy Awards between them and they will all share the same stage for the first time in their careers.
