Maroon 5 Passes On Zac Brown Band For Surprise Super Bowl Halftime Guest, ZBB Announces New Tour

Welp, that’s a bummer.

As you know, the Super Bowl is taking place in Atlanta this Sunday. Georgia is home for Zac Brown Band, and they were in the running to be the surprise halftime performer along with Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi.

Zac Brown told CNN, “I wish that was true (that we’d be performing). It was between us and another band, and they choose the other band. But that’s OK, whatever it is. I wish (it was us), I’m pretty sure it’s not me,” he laughed.

Maybe Adam Levine will get his head out of his ass and bring Alan Jackson out during the performance. Don’t hold your breath…

On the bright side, the band announced a new tour – The Owl Tour. Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Caroline Jones will be the openers.
