The Latest on SB46: By the Numbers
A lot is afoot both in front of the masses and behind the scenes with Indy’s impending Super Bowl. Here’s a list of the latest figures, some of them mind-boggling:
More entertainment and broadcasting plans for Super Bowl 46 were released today at a press conference held at Lucas Oil Stadium, including the names of music acts to grace the various stages in the Super Bowl Village, which takes up a three-block stretch of Georgia St.
First, in defense of Madonna as halftime show performer, the erstwhile Material Girl has just that—oodles of material—to work with. And yet she has been passed off as a “karaoke singer” (et tu, Gene Simmons?) and an over-the-hill, washed-up pop diva. Smacks of ageism, if you ask me. (And you didn’t.)
Word from the Super Bowl Host Committee’s communications team is that the music acts to perform the pregame and halftime shows on Feb. 5 will be announced in mid-December. And yes, rumor has it that Madonna will finally grace that stage with her “Madgesty’s” presence–and song catalog.
