The Weeknd will headline the 2021 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The Canadian star will take to the stage at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida on Sunday, February 7th.

Commenting on the announcement, the Blinding Lights hitmaker said:

"We all grow up watching the world's biggest acts playing the Super Bowl and one can only dream of being in that position. I'm humbled, honored, and ecstatic to be the centre of that infamous stage this year".

The show will be produced in part by Jay-Z and Roc Nation.

In a statement, Jay-Z said:

“The Weeknd has introduced a sound all his own. His soulful uniqueness has defined a new generation of greatness in music and artistry.”

"This is an extraordinary moment in time and the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show is going to be an extraordinary experience with an extraordinary performer", Jay Z added.

Last month, the NFL said it was likely that only 20 percent of the seats will be filled at Raymond James Stadium next year due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
