Super Bowl 53: Maroon 5 cancels news conference

Super Bowl 53: Maroon 5 cancels news conference The NFL released a statement saying "the artists will let their show do the talking as they prepare to take the stage this Sunday." In the past, Super Bowl halftime performers including Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry have held press conferences ahead of the event. Instead, the league said it would use media platforms to show behind-the-scenes footage and content of the halftime performers, including rapper Travis Scott and Atlanta native Big Boi, rather than hold a press conference with the performers.

Professor Green has been forced to cancel his upcoming tour after fracturing his neck in a fall just hours before his first show.

The British rapper said in a post to Instagram that he had had three seizures resulting in a fall which fractured vertebrae in his neck.

Hackney-born Green – known off stage as Stephen Manderson – was due to embark on a tour of the UK beginning tonight at The Globe in Cardiff.

The rapper, 35, shared a picture of himself strapped onto a stretcher with his head supported and a neck brace, with a tube in his nose.

“Depending on how you look at this fall I was extremely lucky. I fractured vertebrae in my neck and subsequently had to cancel my tour that was due to start today.

“I’ll be back in the winter with a bigger tour. I’ve had two further seizures and am lucky I didn’t break my neck. Really f****** lucky. Thanks for baring [sic] with me.”

He apologised to fans, but said he felt lucky to not be in worse condition.

A statement from Professor Green’s spokesperson said: “Due to a serious neck injury Professor Green has been forced to cancel his February 2019 tour. Tickets for all dates are refundable. Refunds will be made available at the point of purchase.”
