College Football Playoff planning Super Bowl-style halftime show for title game
Expect a big-name artist to perform at halftime of the 2018 CFP National Championship in Atlanta
If you love college football but can do without the marching bands, you will get at least one reprieve during the 2017-18 season -- on the biggest night of the year.
Though the game is set to be played at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Jan. 8, the special concert will be held nearby at Centennial Olympic Park. This will allow for marching bands to perform their traditional routines on the football field, while television audiences get a choice between watching the bands or the special concert.
The plan is for the concert at Centennial Olympic Park to be free with the game being shown live on either side of the performance. CFP executive director Bill Hancock told the AP that the concept was formulated by ESPN and is a "win-win" for fans.
The CFP has a lot to live up to if it wants to hire a Super Bowl-level A-list star. Headlining halftime of the NFL's big game over the last few years have been Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Madonna.
