One Direction (1D) wants to go out with a bang. The English-Irish pop stars go on a well-deserved hiatus from May next year. But before they do, they really want to play one last massive gig: the Super Bowl halftime show. Read on for more details.
Come May, 2016, the boys of One Direction are heading in different directions. Liam Payne, Niall Holland, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles will go on an indefinitely long break. They totally denied it because they are fed up with each other, according to Hollywood Life. But before they do, they want to play the biggest gig of them all: the halftime show at Super Bowl.
Word is that this year’s Super bowl halftime will feature many artists, which is a “superstar lineup” to celebrate the event’s 50th anniversary. And 1D is definitely one of the names being passed around to perform, others being Coldplay and Bruno Mars, according to Daily Star. The 2016 Super Bowl is due to be played at the San Francisco 49ers home stadium, Levi’s in Santa Clara California.
For 1D, if their hiatus does turn out to be permanent, there could be no better way to go out. The Daily Star source agrees, as they said whilst speaking to the publication:
“Obviously the 12-minute half-time show will be worth millions in revenue, sales, and downloads too. With the band finishing it would be the ultimate way for the group to say farewell to their fans.”
The last time a boy-band performed at the Super Bowl was in 2001, when N’Sync shared the bill with Britney Spears, Aerosmith, Nelly and Mary J. Bilge. And in 2002, N’ Sync, very much like One Direction, went on a ‘temporary hiatus.’ Well, it’s been twelve years since then, and the hiatus has become a permanent break.
