NFL Scores Paul Mccartney for Ameriquest Mortgage Super Bowl XXXIX Halftime Show on FOX
NEW YORK, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ — Legendary rocker PAUL McCARTNEY will perform in the Ameriquest Mortgage Super Bowl XXXIX Halftime Show on FOX at ALLTEL Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday, February 6, the NFL announced today.
“We are extremely pleased to work again with Paul McCartney, one of the greatest musicians of our time, to create a memorable show,” said Steve Bornstein, the NFL’s executive vice president of media.
Added Bornstein, who will oversee the show for the NFL, “As one of the world’s most beloved artists and incomparable live entertainers, Paul McCartney will deliver an inspirational performance.”
“There’s nothing bigger then being asked to perform at the Super Bowl,” said McCartney. “We’re looking forward to rocking the millions at home and in the stadium.”
“We’re thrilled Sir Paul McCartney has agreed to perform at halftime of Super Bowl XXXIX,” said FOX Sports Chairman David Hill. “He is the world’s most influential rock artist, and his music will forever be a part of our culture. He, more than any other musician, lives up to this year’s Super Bowl theme of Building Bridges. His music bridges generations, countries, cultures and musical genres. I’m also sure that the duet Paul performed with Terry Bradshaw at Super Bowl XXXVI was such a major event, that he couldn’t wait to reunite with Terry in Jacksonville.”
This will be McCartney’s second Super Bowl appearance. He provided a memorable pregame performance at Super Bowl XXXVI in New Orleans in 2002, the first Super Bowl after the tragic events of September 11.
As the climax to the pregame show and immediately prior to the singing of the two traditional anthems “America The Beautiful” and “The Star-Spangled Banner”, McCartney performed “Freedom,” a new anthem reflecting the spirit of freedom.
Watched by a record 144.4 million viewers in the U.S. last year, the Super Bowl is annually the nation’s highest-rated TV program and the most-watched single-day sporting event. The game also will be broadcast in more than 200 countries worldwide. Game time is 6 p.m. ET.
Emmy-Award winning Don Mischer Productions will produce the Ameriquest Mortgage Super Bowl XXXIX Halftime Show starring Paul McCartney.
