By Jeffrey Jolson
HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) 9/28/08 – February 1, 2009 will be a day for music as well as football fans as Bruce Springsteen and the NFL have announced the Boss will rule the Superbowl XLIII halftime show.
He comes on the heels of some celebrated – and notorious – Superbowl presenters from the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Prince and Tom Petty to various members of the Jackson family.
The most-watched TV event of the year, with about 150 million viewers in the U.S., the Superbowl will see Springsteen and his E-Street band perform for 230 countries, and is the biggest musical performance on the planet, outstripping Grammys, Oscars and other worldwide broadcasts – wardrobe malfunctions notwithstanding.
