The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

Mark the date, Sunday, February 11, 2024 Las Vegas, Nevada at Allegiant Stadium. That’s when the BIG GAME comes to Las Vegas, but more importantly, who is performing at halftime?

Probably not at this point in time, however, Las Vegas has been prepping for this moment in sports history for years. The city is also preparing the area around the stadium to be more of a sports atmosphere with bars, restaurants and more.

One such place is Flanker’s Kitchen and Sports Bar. It will be located at the base of The Shoppes at Mandalay Bay, steps away from the walkway leading to the stadium. We’re sure there will be more to follow as well over the course of the year leading up to the Big Game.

However, the most important element to any Big Game is the halftime entertainment. Known as the “Entertainment Capital of the World” we have a lot of eyes on Las Vegas. Given that it was up to us, which it’s NOT, we might have to think long and hard on this one.

First off, we need to make sure the halftime show lives up to the hype of our city! So who is it that should perform at halftime of LVIII?

We do have a lot to choose from. From the The Killers to Imagine Dragons and everyone in between. Maybe the easier question should be, who don’t we want performing at halftime?

All right, let’s cross off the list any Elvis impersonators…or any impersonators for that matter. Any tribute shows, although they are awesome to see and everyone enjoys them, we’re talking halftime now!

According to the Insider, a few names pop right off the list. One being Taylor Swift! She has never performed at halftime before, so you’d think she’s due right? How about Queen with Adam Lambert? Or, are you ready for it…JANET JACKSON!

Think about it and let’s talk…remember, it’s only a year away!

Forty-one percent of the people surveyed have admitted to overeat during the game, which is totally easy to do when you’re glued to the game and eating at the same time. The study also found that people actually look forward to the Super Bowl, not because of the game or even the commercials, but because of the food spread they’re about to partake in!
