Idina Menzel, John Legend to Perform at Super Bowl XLIX
January 16, 2015
Frozen fans rejoice – Idina Menzel will perform at this year’s Super Bowl in Arizona. The “Let it Go” singer has been announced as the National Anthem performance prior to kickoff. John Legend will also sing a rendition of “America the Beautiful” following Menzel. Each will serve as a prelude to Katy Perry’s anticipated halftime performance.
Menzel has stated that she’ll channel her inner Whitney Houston, whom she has been largely influenced by during her rise to superstardom. Houston performed at 1991’s big game in Tampa between the Bills and Giants in one of the most memorable musical moments in Super Bowl history.
Menzel is slated to embark on a UK stadium tour this June. Six dates are currently scheduled at the end of the month, kicking off in Dublin on June 20 and wrapping at the SSE Arena Wembley on June 27. She’ll hit North America this summer, where Idina Menzel tickets on TicketIQ average at $183.04. Her most expensive show will be at the Starlight Theatre on August 12, with tickets averaging at $284.13.
John Legend will make several appearances over the next two months following his Super Bowl appearance. He’ll play the Valentine’s Crush concert at The Forum in Los Angeles on February 13, which will also feature Ne-Yo, Big Sean, Eric Bellinger and Mila J. Other shows Legend will appear at include the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo on February 16, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on March 6 and the Florida Strawberry Festival on March 7. John Legend tickets on TicketIQ over these four shows average at $125.50.
Some of pop music’s biggest stars will touch down at University of Phoenix Stadium during this year’s Super Bowl. With Katy Perry, Idina Menzel and John Legend all slated to hit the stage, expect another All-Star group of performances in Arizona on Super Bowl Sunday.
