Adele Squashes Super Bowl Rumors Kage Taylor August 14, 2016 Source Sports | Sports News Adele announced she will not be the halftime headline show at the 2017 Super Bowl, despite rumor suggesting otherwise. The “Hello” singer addressed fans at her Staples Center concert in Los Angeles Saturday, August 13 and confirmed that NFL representatives did approach her with an offer. Feeling like the performance was not up her alley, she rejected the offer to perform in a stadium full of football fans. “I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don’t really—I can’t dance or anything like that.” In most recent years, halftime acts included: Beyoncé, Coldplay, Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz, Missy Elliott, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Destiny’s Child, and Madonna.
