Due to Latest COVID Variant, Dr. Dre Could Lose Millions if the NFL Cancels Halftime Performance

All eyes are on this year’s Super Bowl LVI in California.

After this week’s announcement from the Recording Academy that the Grammy Awards, originally scheduled for Jan. 30, has been postponed due to the recent uptick of COVID-19 cases, the focus has shifted to the NFL’s plans for the Super Bowl. The game is slated for Feb. 13., 2022, at the new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, but concerns over Omicron are cutting into those plans.

Although the game itself is a major draw, the halftime performance is an event in itself.

Pepsi, the NFL, and Roc Nation have put together a musical lineup that is sure to have non-football fans tuning into Super Bowl LVI. The Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show lineup will include Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.

Although there has been no talk of canceling the performance, there are still concerns about the possibility that it can happen. If it does, according to TMZ, Dr. Dre could lose millions since he is paying “most of the money necessary to pull off the event.”
