The 2024 Super Bowl will be held on February 11, 2024 at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada and Nevada governor Joe Lombardo says that he wants one legendary hard rock act to play the halftime show.

"AC/DC!" Lombardo answered, without hesitation, when he was asked whom he wants to see play the Super Bowl, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "I was going to yell it out … But yeah, I'm serious. Bring 'em back."

Lombardo made his comments at the NFL and Las Vegas Super Bowl LVIII Host Committee press conference Wednesday at Vū Las Vegas production complex.

The headliner for next year's Super Bowl will be announced this fall.

National Football League (NFL) works with Jay-Z and Roc Nation on producing the show, with Apple Music as the primary sponsor for the show.

Only two Super Bowl halftime show performers have come even remotely close to being heavy metal: The Who in 2010 and Aerosmith in 2001.

According to, the NFL considers popularity, music genre, and the artists' overall performance value choosing the performers for the halftime show. However, it's not the NFL that chooses who takes the stage. The league comes up with a short list, but the host cities pick the Super Bowl halftime performers.

Hi Johnny! David Caldwell, part of the Sescot Radio team! Just to say thanks for the shows - I tuned in recently and heard a cracking track from Alannah Miles - 'Still Got This Thing For You' - and love it! I had never heard it before as I think most people, like myself, only know of Alannah's hit 'Black Velvet', itself a great track. Stay safe :)
