Pulling off a full-fledged stadium rock show within an NFL halftime period demands precise logistical organization.
For football fans, the high-stakes competition between NFL teams that plays out during the Super Bowl is the event of the year — but just as admirable as the on-field plays is the action happening behind the scenes.
More so than a typical football game, the Super Bowl presents some significant logistical challenges for organizers. Unsurprisingly, the very existence of the annual halftime show constitutes an incredible feat, with grounds crews having to construct and dismantle elaborate stages and sets within a matter of minutes. As the world’s most viewed performance, the Super Bowl halftime show can’t afford a single disruption — and most years (“wardrobe malfunctions” aside), all those months of careful preparation pay off with a show that’s as seamless as it is entertaining.
