News > Five Bands We'd Like To See at Super Bowl XLV

Added on 23-Feb-2010

Everything is bigger in Texas. And this year, Super Bowl XLV will be held in the mega-plex of Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX.

With a record capacity of 105,121 last season and the largest jumbo-tron in the world, there is no question that Super Bowl XLV will be the sporting event of the decade.

To go along with the undoubtedly flamboyant pre-planning for next February, the big game will need a big performer to dazzle fans during the half-time show.

Big names have played the show in the past: U2, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, the Who, and the Rolling Stones to name a few.

Here is list of big-named groups that should be at the top of the list to play the half time show in 2011.


The epitome of stadium rock, there is no doubt that Queen + Paul Rodgers would get Arlington rocking.

During Super Bowl XLIV, the Who performed without bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon, who died in 2002 and 1978.

Likewise, Queen would have to take the stage without long-time lead singer Freddie Mercury, who passed away in 1992.

But Queen hasn't lost a step since Mercury's death, adding Paul Rodgers and continuing to tour. Although Queen hasn't had many chart toppers with Rodgers as the front man, they do have "We Will Rock You," "I Want It All," "Under Pressure," and "We Are The Champions" on their resume.
