As TMZ reports, Dr. Dre might lose millions of dollars if his Super Bowl LVI halftime show gets canceled due to COVID19 regulations.
According to sources, Dre is spending his own money (like The Weeknd did) for the show to be unforgettable which is currently scheduled to go ahead on February 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Doctor is bringing Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige with him.
But with the pandemic unfortunately still raging, the possibility of a cancelation is not completely out of the question. Sources close to the event tell TMZ that Dre has insurance to cover that outcome, but there’s an exclusion on any COVID-19 related cancelations. The Communicable Disease Exemption, which has been present in event cancelation insurance packages long before COVID-19 hit, means the insurance will not cover a coronavirus-related cancelation.
It was also reported that the National Football League is considering replacement venues for the game, because of California’s strict indoor mask mandate but NFL spokesperson has recently said that the Super Bowl will take place in L.A. as originally planned, per NBC Los Angeles.
