Santana Calls Out NFL And CBS For Not Including Local Musicians

February 11, 2016


As more days pass by, it seems that fewer and fewer people are satisfied with this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. Some call out Beyonce for being racist, some think that Coldplay was as interesting as a sandbox, some think that Bruno Mars is simply too short for a stadium of that size… Everyone’s a critic! The latest celeb who shared their views on the halftime show was Carlos Santana.

The legendary musician posted a note on is Facebook profile, in which he talks about his dissatisfaction with the fact that Super Bowl 50’s show didn’t represent San Francisco as well as it could.

The 68-year-old artist wrote that he feels “compelled to point out that the Halftime Show should have included some of the local iconic bands that the World would have loved to see perform.”

Santana thinks that bands like Metallica, Steve Miller, Journey and his own band “would have rocked the Half Time Show and done the SF Bay Area proud.”

The iconic “Smooth” performer also stated that “this is just an invitation for NFL and CBS to consider iconic bands as part of their Half Time entertainment.”

“Real live music, real live vocals, and give the audience real live chills,” Santana concluded, and also thanked CBS and NFL for including him in the Super Bowl’s highlight reel. He performed at a Super Bowl pregame show back in 2003.
