So Madonna is performing at the Super Bowl….and I’m not really excited. Sure I’m glad the big game is coming to my former hometown, but Madonna isn’t my first choice. She’ll be better than the Black Eyed Peas, but she won’t come anywhere near Prince (click here to see why). Here’s my list of acts I would rather see perform in Indy for the big game in February.
Kings of Leon
The band is big enough now with plenty of great hits that they would be appealing for most people. I just hope they don’t sound like this…
I realize not everyone loves my favorite band, but they have enough hits to play a Super Bowl set, plus they would do well in a big stadium setting.
Arcade Fire fans make up about 12% of Super Bowl watchers, but man that 12% would go crazy. They do kill it live though.
Everyone would love to sing along with their arsenal of big hits such as “The Scientist”
Dave Matthews Band
Why these guys? BECAUSE IT’S DAVE!
These rock vetrans still kill it live, and it would be hard for anyone not to sing along with “Even Flow” and “Alive”, even if nobody understands what Eddie Vedder is singing about.
A guitar God performing songs everyone knows? Sounds good enough for me.
Songs like “99 Problems” would be perfect for a Super Bowl halftime show. He could even bring Kanye with him for a couple of songs.
So if the commissioner for next year’s Super Bowl is reading this, here are your options.
Brady is the founder of Headphone Nation. He’s responsible for all this mess. Sorry about that. He’s also on Twitter @BradyWGerber
