Band Accepts NFL Pay to Play Plan, Offers $2 Million for Superbowl Halftime


Sign in to view read count
As we reported earlier this week, the NFL is asking artists to pay for the privilege of playing their widely watched Superbowl halftime show.  Industry response has been tepid, accept from one band.  UK rockers You Me At Six are offering $2 million to perform.  Here's their open letter to the NFL:

Dear NFL:

We’re sorry to hear that you’re in such dire financial straits.  While Coldplay and Rihanna mull your offer, we’re here to help with a multi-tiered proposal.

1. For $2 Million: We get to play the upcoming halftime show. 2. For $10 Million, one of us gets to quarterback a set of downs for the team of our choosing. 3. For $40 million, the Super Bowl will be played with English football rules, where you must use your feet, and an actual ball.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts once you’ve had a chance to review.  We welcome any of the Super Bowl committee to attend one of our upcoming American concerts.  Our tour kicks off September 15(th) at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA.


You Me At Six
