It's Official: Madonna to Perform at Super Bowl Half Time

The NFL and NBC made it official tonight on Sunday Night Football when they announced that Madonna would be the performer for this year's Super Bowl on February 5 from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.

Because of the audience drawn by the big game, the Bridgestone Super Bowl Half Time Show ends up being the most watched musical performance of the year which will be a boon for Madonna with a new album coming out in the late-Winter/early-Spring. It also will draw attention to her latest directorial effort, W.E., which opens nationally two days before the game.

The singer is partnering with a creative team from Cirque du Soleil, Jamie King, and multimedia artists from Moment Factory, to create a signature performance for the show.

Madonna joins an esteemed list of recent halftime acts that includes The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and U2.

A world class entertainer, singer, songwriter, producer, director and video visionary, Madonna has sold more than 300 million records in the course of her three decade career as The Material Girl. She is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Her last tour was the most successful tour by a solo artist in history. Madonna is currently in the recording studio working on a new album scheduled to be released next year.
