Super Bowl Presser Canceled
1/29/2019 3:10 PM PST
Maroon 5 will NOT be taking questions from the media about their Super Bowl halftime show — the NFL just announced the pre-show press conference is officially OFF.
SportsBusiness Journal’s Daniel Kaplan says the presser had been on the official schedule of events — and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport essentially confirmed by saying the presser was “canceled.”
The NFL issued a statement saying … “Maroon 5 has been working hard on a Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show that will meet and exceed the standards of this event.”
“As it is about music, the artists will let their show do the talking as they prepare to take the stage this Sunday.”
Instead of hosting a press conference, the NFL says the artists and the league will participate in a “social and digital media rollout” to promote the show.
