The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is celebrating the 2021 NFL Draft in Cleveland with a new exhibit honoring the dynamic history of the Super Bowl Halftime Show and its legendary performers. Created in concert with the NFL, "The Biggest Show on Turf: 55 Years of Halftime Shows"
features stories behind so many of the memorable national anthem and halftime peformances seen by Super Bowl audiences that exceed 100 million viewers annually as the most watched television event of the year, every year.
Fans can relive decades of memorable Super Bowl moments through performance outfits, instruments, and set pieces, including:
- The Weeknd’s breathtaking mirrored infinity room set piece along with Choir robes and jackets sharing stories about the spectacular visual entertainment experience and unique COVID-era 2021 performance.
- Bono’s flag-lined jacket from U2’s 2002 moving performance that matched spectacle with intimacy with the band rising to the monumental challenge of consoling a still-grieving nation five months after 9/11.
- Prince’s turquoise suit worn during his unforgettable purple-rained 2007 performance, where he asked production managers “Can you make it rain harder?”
- Katy Perry’s beach-ball inspired costume and “Left Shark” that ignited a pop culture phenomenon after her 2015 performance.
- Joey Kramer’s drumhead from Aerosmith’s 2001 performance that marked the first time ever in a Super Bowl Halftime Show that fans stood on the field around the stage.
Plus, fans can get a behind the scenes look at the entire operation, from Lady Gaga
and Black Eyed Peas
stage models to The Who’s
lighting grid and stage plans and time lapses of production set ups and tear downs over the years.
The Rock Hall is open daily with extended draft hours on 4/30 and 5/1 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Advance tickets required.
