Report: Maroon 5 Has Invited the Rolling Stones to Join Them for the Super Bowl Halftime Show
Source – Maroon 5 has had a tough time finding other acts to join them onstage when they perform as the halftime entertainers at Super Bowl 53 next month. The band has added Travis Scott to their show to help make things a little more fresh and current, and are still looking for other acts to join them. “Maroon 5 and Adam Levine are trying to make their halftime show for the Super Bowl as awesome as possible, but they have not been having much luck getting anyone to join them on stage. Travis Scott is the only person that has told them he will help out and even Travis is getting heat and backlash from fellow artists for putting himself on stage,” a source close to the band tells HollywoodLife.com. …
“Everyone knows Maroon 5’s monster hit, ‘Moves Like Jagger’ so the idea from Adam came very easily to have them perform it with Mick and the gang. Adam would love to have a few other Stones classics be played on top of that. Adam feels that it would be great to get the Stones to a newer audience and it would clearly help their tour as it also would be a dream come true for Maroon 5 to perform with such icons,” our source adds.
“They have asked and nothing is at all confirmed, but Adam is really pulling for it and hopes that Mick and Keith and the band will say yes.”
Credit where credit is due. There is nothing like a superstar who’s made it to the very pinnacle of their profession, but hasn’t gotten too big to reach out and help someone still trying to make it. And that is Adam Levine.
Imagine the Stones getting an opportunity like this from a bunch of megastars like Maroon 5? The chance to help their tour and reach that newer audience Maroon 5 basically has a monopoly on? Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and the rest of the band, finally getting the career break that’s eluded them for the last half century. As if the mentions in “Moves Like Jagger” wasn’t humbling enough, the chance to share the stage with the Rock ‘n Roll geniuses behind “Payphone” and “This Love” is the kind of thing the Stones were dreaming of back when they were barely selling out 100,000 stadiums around the world for 50 years. It’s got to be both humbling and validating for them. But that’s the kind of “remember where you came from” spirit that Maroon 5 embodies.
And inspired by their generosity, I hereby publicly invite Beyonce and Jay-Z, Springsteen, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeren, Gaga and Michael Buble’ to come to my Super Bowl party and to write about it afterwards. It’ll help them with their next tours, reach a newer audience and will be a dream come true for my other party guests. You’re welcome.
