YOU ME AT SIX OFFERS TO PLAY SUPER BOWL
British rock act You Me At Six has offered its services to the NFL to appear as performers at the Super Bowl halftime show after reports surfaced that the organization was asking potential halftime acts Coldplay, Rihanna and Katy Perry if they'd be willing to pay for the privilege of playing at the big game.
The band wrote, "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."
The group added, "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 15th at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA."
A report surfaced last week that the NFL had asked representatives for Coldplay, Rihanna and Perry if they would either be willing to pay the league directly or share a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour earnings in exchange for the opportunity to play at halftime. The proposal was said to have been met with a "chilly" response.
You Me At Six is touring in support of its fourth studio album, Cavalier Youth, which features the Top 10 rock radio hit "Room To Breathe."
