Nikki Sixx Says Metallica Would Be Great For The Super Bowl Halftime Show
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx recently posted a tweet claiming that Metallica would rock the Super Bowl halftime show.
This year’s Super Bowl took place at SoFi Stadium on February 14, with many rap and hip-hop artists rocking the stage during the halftime show. Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, and Anderson .Paak were among the musicians who performed there, while many other celebrities were also be seen watching the show.
The musicians performed on a set which was a recreation of the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial at Compton City Hall on one end and the Compton Courthouse on the other, along with a street scene with local shops and restaurants. The performance was well-received by many, and it marked the first year that hip-hop music was at the center of live performances.
A day after the show, one of Nikki Sixx’s fans posted a tweet tagging the bassist to tell him that the world needs a Mötley Crüe halftime show, and rock music needs to return to the Super Bowl. The fan also said that although they liked this year’s halftime show, they still questioned which rock band would rock the Superbowl and blow the audience’s minds.
Upon seeing this tweet, Nikki Sixx decided to share the band he thinks would be great for the Super Bowl halftime show. He stated that he thinks Metallica would be great to watch on the Super Bowl stage. Although the fan asked him for a Crüe show, Sixx didn’t reveal his thoughts on what would happen if Crüe took the stage for the Super Bowl.
One of his fans told Nikki Sixx the following in a tweet:
“Sixx, I really liked the halftime show yesterday. Then I thought, what band would totally f*cking rock the Super Bowl, blowing our minds and also blow sh*t up. The world needs a Crüe halftime show even if it’s with another band or to, rock needs to return to the Bowl.”
Sixx then responded:
“I gotta tell you, I think Metallica would be a great halftime show.“
