Adele Refused To Perform On Super Bowl 2017 Halftime Show

Adele revealed that she would not be performing at the Super Bowl half-time show. According to her, she said no to the organisers because the event, which is to be held at Houston’s NRG Stadium in Texas in February, 2017, has nothing to do with music.

“First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl. I mean, come on, that show is not about music,” she reportedly said on Saturday her concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, as quoted by “And I don’t really – I can’t dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no.”

Previously, there were reports that the organisers badly wanted to get the British singer on board.

“There is nobody bigger in the world than Adele right now and organisers are doing absolutely everything they can to try to persuade her to sign up,” the Sun quoted a source as saying. “She’s sold out every date on her tour, everyone wants a piece of her and they know they can bank on her bringing in the viewers.”

The singer is currently in the US on a tour and revealed that she is planning to stay there for some time at her in her $7.8 million Los Angeles mansion, after her tour ends. She added that she looking forward to spending Christmas with her partner Simon Konecki and their three-year-old son Angelo.

“I’m in America for eight months. I’m on tour and then I’m going to have Christmas in America,” she said. “I haven’t done that before, I’m really excited.”

However, on Sunday Pepsi and NFL jointly released a statement saying that no formal offer was extended to Adele or any other artist to perform at the event, the Billboard reported.

“The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele. We have had conversations with several artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show,” the statement said. However, we have not at this point extended a formal offer to Adele or anyone else. We are focused on putting together a fantastic show for Houston and we look forward to revealing that in good time.”
