NEW YORK (AP) — This season’s Super Bowl will be held in February, in the New York Metropolitan area. And while football players know how to deal with playing outside in freezing temperatures, how do singers and musicians deal with it?
That’s the question everyone has been asking Bruno Mars. And he says it’s starting to worry him.
Mars says since he landed the halftime gig, “everyone’s putting the fear of God in me like there’s going to be a blizzard.” He jokes that he might even “wear a beekeeper suit” if that’s what it takes. Mars says he’s trying not to get too hyped up about what the weather will be like. As he put it: “I know it’s going to be cold and I’ve just got to face it.”
It won’t just be Bruno Mars who has to brace for the expected cold when the Super Bowl comes to New York City in February. Other acts will have to deal with the conditions, too.
The Foo Fighters and the Zac Brown Band have been booked to play on a cruise ship docked at a Manhattan pier a day before the game. Also scheduled to perform as part of the Super Bowl events are The Roots, Imagine Dragons, Run DMC and Fall Out Boy.
There are more fortunate ones — who will get to perform inside. They include The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, who will rock Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn the night before the big game.
