It’s official: Big Boi to join Maroon 5 at Super Bowl halftime

Big Boi will join Maroon 5 for the halftime show at Super Bowl LIII, the NFL revealed Sunday.

 Also known as Antwan Andre Patton, Big Boi is one half of the famed Atlanta-based hip hop duo Outkast.

It’s been known for a while that Maroon 5 would perform at Mercedes-Benz Stadium during the Feb. 3 game, but the accompanying acts have been up in the air.

Up until recently large music acts seemed reluctant to commit to the Super Bowl gig.
