Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige & Kendrick Lamar Set for Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Sh

The Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show will be a star-studded affair when it happens on Feb. 13, 2022: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar are set to perform at the event in SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. The show, put together in partnership with the NFL, Pepsi and Roc Nation, will be, unsurprisingly, the first time that all five superstars grace the stage together.

It will also be the first time that the Super Bowl will take place in Los Angeles in 30 years, being housed in the newly-built stadium that is home to both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. The show will air on NBC.

“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” Dre said in a statement. “I’m grateful to JAY-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.”

Dre is the connective tissue between each of the artists, having famously produced several songs and albums by each of the other four performers; Dre produced the entirety of Snoop’s debut album Doggystyle, while Eminem and Lamar spent large parts of their careers signed to Dre’s Aftermath Records and each of the four artists has appeared on Dr. Dre’s albums through the years.

In addition to the performance, the NFL and Pepsi are helping with the launch of the magnet high school Regional School #1 in South Los Angeles, which will open next school year as part of the L.A. Unified School District and is based on Dre and longtime Interscope Records and Apple Music executive Jimmy Iovine’s USC Iovine and Young Academy. The NFL and Pepsi will work with the school and the local community on partnerships and internships, which L.A. Unified interim superintendent Megan K. Reilly said in a statement "will help develop and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators."
