Many believed Rihanna’s incredible 2023 show was an impossible act to follow but organisers have pulled out all the stops to secure a performer of Neville’s calibre.
It’s understood Neville fought off stiff competition from a super group consisting of former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Star, guitar legend Carlos Santana and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl to join the planned show.
‘There are only a handful of artists in the world with the talent and global appeal to follow in Rihanna’s footsteps. Taylor Swift, Drake and Gary Neville’, said his fellow Super Bowl Half-Time show performer Usher.
‘Sure, I’m one of the biggest stars on the planet but when you get a chance to perform with a man who still can’t grow a moustache at 48, you have to do it.’
Neville’s contribution to the show is rumoured to include tales from his former United days, a live social media row with a politician and will be followed by two-hour post-game DJ set including hits like Status Quo’s Come On You Reds and the No.68 single Outstanding by former United striker Andy Cole after the game.
Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Neville revealed he’ll be bringing some special guests to share the stage during the event.
‘Keano and Carra will be performing a duet of Islands in the Stream.’
Obviously, Becks will be parading around in his briefs, and I’ll have to involve our Philip somehow’.
Confirming his appearance at the world’s most-watched show on X, Neville wrote:
‘It’s an honour of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list’.
‘I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen before.
‘But if it all goes tits up on the night, I think we can all agree it’s the Glazers fault.
‘Join us 11th February if you like’.
