Local Fans Needed for Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show

Calling all Beyonce fans and Super Bowl halftime enthusiasts: Area residents are needed at the center of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome come Sunday, February 3, 2013.

Five hundred local men and women are needed to be part of the stage crew that will help run the stage onto the field and perform other duties during the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show featuring Ms. B.

Game on, Beyonce.

No prior experience is required, but volunteers must attend all posted rehearsals and be over the age of 18. Interested volunteers may log on to www.superbowlproductions.com for more information and to register and view the rehearsal schedule (which starts Sunday, January 6).

As a volunteer, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the event, which you may or may not be aware is annually the nation’s most-watched TV program (112.5 million viewers in the States last year, for the number crunchers). And, of course, the game and halftime show will be broadcast worldwide.

A note, though: Volunteers will not receive tickets to the game, but you can be assured you’ll “be an integral part of the show” and likely have a few good stories to tell your friends.

Good luck, sports fans.

    everyone in that stadium working has some kind of contract or employee agreement and workman’s comp or NFL insurance. how can some performer recruit “volunteers” to work — on a gig for which she’s being PAID and insured — what if one of these “volunteers” not-hired to “work” gets hurt doing this “job” integral to the NFL-franchise show? Where are the lawyers? if an NFL player gets hurt on that turf, he is covered by insurance. Does the stadium have a blanket medical liability clause? the “volunteer” would be performing a normally paid for service for the NFL — since the NFL hired this performer for its show, etc. Not seeing this “volunteer to work free” thing being legal — being this “unpaid slave labor” is an “integral part of the NFL show” – etc. very risky liability wise. Do other stage show roadies work for free? what is this malarky?
