Super Bowl Flashback: U2 (2002)

Super Bowl 45 is set for tonight at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Green Bay Packers for NFL Football’s crown.

The Black Eyed Peas are scheduled to perform the Halftime Show, possibly to be joined by rumored guests Usher and Slash.

hennemusic gets you warmed up for the big game with a series of flashbacks to rock n' roll Super Bowl Halftimes of the past.

Here’s today’s starting lineup:

12:30 PM – U2 (2002)
1:30 PM – Paul McCartney (2005)
2:30 PM – The Rolling Stones (2006)
3:30 PM – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (2008)
4:30 PM – Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band (2009)
5:30 PM – The Who (2010)

Many times through the years, the events have featured a mix of artists, themes and/or musical stylings; in 2002, at the Superdome in New Orleans, U2 became the first rock act to own center stage.
