This year, the Cincinnati Bengals will take on the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. But the big game has become about more than who will win the Lombardi trophy. For years, the most casual fans and even those who don’t ever watch the sport have tuned in for the commercials as well as the halftime show.
The Super Bowl brings in hundreds of millions of viewers and some of the biggest names in music are tapped every year to perform during halftime. This year is no different so here’s where you can see the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show and all the pregame festivities.

In September 2021, the league announced that Hip-hop giants Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar will take the stage along with the Queen of R&B Mary J. Blige. The event will mark the third collaboration between Pepsi, the NFL, and Roc Nation.
“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,” Dr. Dre said in a statement via NFL.com. “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.”
