NFL May Cancel Super Bowl Halftime Show Next Year

The NFL after so many years of sub par halftime shows, nailed it this year with Beyoncé performing in New Orleans.  What will they do next year for an encore?  Probably nothing.

Off The Bench is reporting that because of the cold winter weather expected next year at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey, the NFL may ax the halftime show for one season.

“It’s because of the cold weather,” revealed one source involved in the planning of the first-ever open-to-the-winter-elements Super Bowl.

“It’s not only the acts and the singers but [also] the crews that have to put the stage together. You know, the assembly has to be done a certain way. It’s choreographed and rehearsed so it can be assembled and disassembled as fast as possible. And you just can’t assemble the stage and break it down fast enough in the cold.”

“There’s no plan right now of what to do in its place,” the planning official said about the halftime spectacle.

If that is the decision, I do agree.  Only a handful of artist would dare agree to perform in 20 or 30 degree weather.
