AC/DC Will Play Super Bowl In Vegas, If Our Governor Has Any Say
The Governor of Nevada wants AC/DC to play at the Super Bowl 2024 in Las Vegas. And he’s serious about making it happen.
Joe Lombardo has only been the governor of Nevada since January of this year. But even though he’s fairly new in his role, he’s determined to make his mark on the city. And that includes who will play at the first ever Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
Super Bowl 2024 details.
The big game will be at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday February 11, 2024. And locals are speculating quite a bit on who will be playing the famous halftime show. There were rumors of Taylor Swift performing that were quickly shut down. Then we heard news about Ed Sheeran potentially doing it. But people.com reported the “Perfect” singer wasn’t interested unless he was joining another artist.
Rock music fans are undoubtedly anxious about bringing a rock band back into the famous halftime performance slot. The last rock band to play there was The Who back in 2010, according to Loudwire.com. So rock is long overdue to pay a visit to the Super Bowl. So we’re with Lombardo on that.
But AC/DC specifically doesn’t have any huge significance for Las Vegas, or for the Super Bowl. They’re an Australian rock band. They’ve never played the halftime show before. And they’re not one of these bands that is likely to repel down from the roof, like Lady Gaga or use acrobatics, like P!nk.
Although, they honestly wouldn’t have to. Because they’re freaking AC/DC. All they would need is to plug those guitars in and turn on Brian Johnson’s mic and the whole stadium would be thunderstruck.
The likelihood of it happening.
The governor’s opinion isn’t the only consideration for booking a halftime show band. Considerations also have to include who might bring in a wide demographic of viewers. And then of course it has to be someone who doesn’t already have a show booked that same date. The announcement for who will be performing is supposed to be made this fall (loudwire.com).
