Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift will not perform at the 2024 Super Bowl.
It is the most anticipated sporting and musical event of the year – in the United States but also in the world. And precisely, after Rihanna‘s memorable performance last February, many are wondering: who will succeed her? So obviously, one could think of artists like Ed Sheeran or Taylor Swift – who are currently touring the United States with respective tours that are as intense as they are successful. But, bad news, the two artists will not perform for the very popular half-time of the final.
In an interview for Sirius FM, Ed Sheeran expressed his reasons for refusing such a performance: » There was a conversation a while ago, I think it was when Coldplay did it, about that I was going to play ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and I think that I would only do it if I joined someone else », he explains thus, referring to a potential performance. Also, he continues: “I think it’s an American characteristic. I have no pace”.
Quoting artists such as Prince, Beyoncé or Lady Gaga, the British continues: “All these extraordinary artists, I am not like them. I won’t have any dancers on stage. I don’t want fireworks and bla-bla. I can’t, it’s not me. I don’t think anyone wants to see me make the Super Bowl either . «
Taylor Swift is rumored to have turned down the Super Bowl
However, he does not refuse the idea of joining an artist on stage – as a guest. And precisely, great friend and collaborator of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran could very well have joined her on stage (to sing End Game, for example). Except Taylor Swift is rumored to have declined to perform for the 2024 finale . At the top with her Eras Tour (which continues to break records), Taylor Swift seemed to be the perfect candidate for such an event. If the reasons for her refusal have not been detailed, it is not difficult to imagine that her busy schedule keeps her away from any event.
For now, the artist who will perform in 2024 for the famous final has not been chosen… so be patient!
