Even though the National Football League season has JUST started, Maroon 5 has reportedly been booked to perform at the big game.

Maroon 5 will headline the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in Atlanta on February 3, 2019, according to a report from Variety. "The Voice" coach reportedly told Howard Stern in 2015 that they "actively want to play the Super Bowl".

While nothing has yet been confirmed, US Weekly notes that the Super Bowl Halftime show has always been an ambition of Maroon 5. The last time a band was tapped to play the Super Bowl, it was Coldplay, who happened to bring out Bruno Mars and a just a singer named Beyonce.

Maroon 5's discography also affords the opportunity for some high-profile guest appearances, as recent collaborators have included Cardi B ("I Like It") and Kendrick Lamar ("Don't Wanna Know").

Super Bowl 53 will be held Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and broadcast by CBS. They've also collaborated with Wiz Khalifa, Christina Aguilera ("Moves Like Jagger" would be a banger for the Super Bowl, right?) Rihanna, and ASAP Rocky during their career.

Maroon 5 have been steadily and cranking out hits since 2002, so they'll have no shortage of material to perform. "It's a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show", the statement begins.

The group is now touring in support of their 2017 album Red Pill Blues, with their final show of 2018 taking place in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve.
