Van Halen Rumored to Play During Halftime at 2013 Super Bowl
Rumor has it that Van Halen will play during the extended intermission of the 2013 Super Bowl. This does not sound so outlandish when you consider the trend of hiring older entertainers over the past several years.
2010 brought us The Who and this year’s halftime performer was Madonna. They sandwiched the Black Eyed Peas in there in 2011 to give viewers some music that is relevant to this generation. Maybe in 2014 they can arm the Rolling Stones with oxygen tanks and roll them out onstage!
Although I speculate that it is mostly wives and girlfriends watching at Super Bowl parties, the halftime show is one of the most watched events on American television. This could be news to you as you are probably looking at first half stats and figuring out your second half bets.
David Lee Roth is back as the band’s front man and lead singer, although I doubt you see as much “Jumping” as you did during their heyday in the 80’s. Eddy Van Halen is the one who dropped the rumor of the possibility of the halftime performance. To put the aging label in perspective, Van Halen will be joined on next year’s outings by Wolfgang Van Halen, Eddy’s son.
We will see if this pans out or turns out to be just a rumor. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the 2013 odds to win the Super Bowl.
