Now that was a halftime show performance. (Too bad this video doesn’t have Purple Rain). I have been OK with halftime shows in recent years. Some good performances like Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones and even Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers make this thing really cool. Then again, I love classic rock.
But last year’s nonsense from the Black Eyed Peas and some years back, Britney Spears, ‘NSYNC and Nelly really killed my ears.
This year, we have Madonna doing the set and I am sure she’ll put on a good show. Her last song is “Like a Prayer” which clearly is a PG version of her more famous “Like a Virgin”. But whatever.
What I like at Super Bowl halftime shows is an artist with history and classic tunes. This is the perfect opportunity for just that. And maybe one day, we’ll get a legendary show like this.
