McCartney tapped for Super Bowl halftime


Published: Mon, November 22, 2004 @ 12:00 a.m.


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Paul McCartney will headline the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 6 as the NFL goes mainstream after the controversy over last January's show.
"There's nothing bigger then being asked to perform at the Super Bowl," said McCartney.
"We're looking forward to rocking the millions at home and in the stadium."
Last Feb. 1 at Houston's Reliant Stadium, singer Justin Timberlake ripped off part of singer Janet Jackson's outfit, exposing her right breast to a TV audience of some 90 million people.
CBS is protesting an FCC fine of $550,000 for the halftime show.
Clearly, the league has chosen to avoid such potential problems by signing the former Beatle. It will be McCartney's second Super Bowl appearance.
He also sang in the pregame show in New Orleans in 2002.
"We are extremely pleased to work again with Paul McCartney, one of the greatest musicians of our time, to create a memorable show," said Steve Bornstein, the NFL's executive vice president of media.
"As one of the worlds most beloved artists and incomparable live entertainers, Paul McCartney will deliver an inspirational performance."
