Adele is rumored to be in the running to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2017. According to whispers, the National Football League is in talks with the “Hello” singer to perform at one of the biggest U.S. events of the year.
A National Football League representative reportedly said to The Sun, “There is nobody bigger in the world than Adele right now and organizers are doing absolutely everything they can to try to persuade her to sign up. 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,” adding, “It’s Adele’s nerves that are the issue -- it hasn’t been an easy sell.”
This past October, the singer released her worldwide hit “Hello,” and is currently touring in support of her latest album, 25. If Adele were perform at the Super Bowl, she would be in the company of Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Madonna and all of the other industry heavyweights who have performed at past shows.
The performance might even have the power to top her set at Glastonbury 2016, where she called her performance on the main stage this past June as the “best moment of my life.”
Thus far, representatives for National Football League and Adele herself have offered no further commentary on the matter.
In other Adele news, the singer recently added two dates in Los Angeles on her tour in support of 25. Billboard reported that both dates are scheduled to be at the Los Angeles Staples Center and will run from Aug. 20-21, joining over 100 dates that have spanned across the world.
