Super Bowl LVI is going down on February 13th, 2022, but the ongoing threat of COVID-19 could call off big halftime plans. There is no doubt that Dr. Dre is one of the most accomplished rappers in the history of the Hip Hip world. His influence in the entire genre is simply unparalleled, dating back to his days of the N.W.A. It seems he might face some huge losses.
He has worked together with several rappers during his long career. However, he never got to collab with the Notorious B.I.G, even if they were close to making a collab.
According to TMZ, Super Bowl halftime show is certainly a highly anticipated event but if COVID-19 has its way, Dr. Dre might suffer a loss worth millions. Dre is fronting most of the money necessary to pull off the event and it is said to be in the millions.
The rap mogul also has Event Cancellation Insurance to cover any calamity that might derail the halftime show. However, COVID-19 is not included in the list.
The provision is called a Communicable Disease Exemption and has been around for many years. However, COVID is part of the Communicable Disease Exemption, which means the insurance policy will not cover Dre’s losses if the show is cancelled.
The belief is that the show will go on as planned as Omicron is likely to peak later on this month. We will have to wait and see whether the Halftime Show will happen or not next month.
