Any thoughts on bands to have to pay to be in the Super Bowl halftime show? Not sure any money is worth that because you know the NFL is going to want huge money for it. As it is, they pretty much get everything for free in the host city now and make most of the money. I say don’t pay to play and see what happens to the coveted halftime show if no one performs.
