This show might prove to be the most impressive performance in their collaboration thus far.

Having strong connections to California, Dr. Dre is thrilled to pursue this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity alongside his friends. “The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, and to do it in my backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” Stated Dre. “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.”

When talking about the upcoming event, Jay-Z stated, “Dr. Dre, a musical visionary from Compton; Snoop Dogg, an icon from Long Beach; and Kendrick Lamar, a young musical pioneer in his own right, also from Compton; will take center field for a performance of a lifetime.They will be joined by the lyrical genius Eminem, and the timeless Queen, Mary J. Blige … This is history in the making.”

Vice president of marketing at Pepsi, Todd Kaplan, also added a few comments of his own: “Artists like Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg were at the forefront of the West Coast hip hop revolution, so to be able to bring them back to LA, where it all began alongside Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will prove to be an epic, unforgettable celebration of the impact hip hop has today.”

The 56th Super Bowl is currently scheduled to take place on February 13, 2022. Viewers can watch the game accompanied by the Halftime Show on NBC or any sports broadcasting subscription.
