The Weeknd Previews Super Bowl Halftime Show

The Weeknd is preparing a blockbuster show unlike anything he’s ever done before.Ahead of his highly-anticipated performance at this weekend’s Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show, the “Blinding Lights” singer fielded questions from reporters during a press conference on Thursday (Feb. 4).

While he remained coy about the details, he did reveal that the cinematic 12-minute show will take place in the stands and on the football field at Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium.

“Due to COVID and for the safety of the players and the workers, we built the stage within the stadium,” said The Weeknd. “We’re also using the field as well, but we wanted to do something we’ve never done before, so we built the stage in the stadium. I’m not going to tell you anything else because you’ll have to watch on Sunday.”

Despite his graphic music videos, he’s making sure the show stays family friendly. “For sure, I definitely want to be respectful to the viewers at home,” he said. “I will still incorporate some of the storyline. It’s a very cohesive story I’ve been telling throughout this era and throughout this year. So the story will continue, but definitely we’ll keep it PG for the families. I’ll try my best.”
