The first-ever Super Bowl in Las Vegas is going to pay tribute to the city in a way that truly screams Sin City — or sings, rather … ’cause it’s gonna include the late, great Frank Sinatra.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … there will be several “My Way” tributes prominently featured throughout the Super Bowl LVIII broadcast, with Sinatra’s famous rendition of the tune — written by Paul Anka — being the one to lead the opening segment.
What this is, we’re told, is a cheers moment for Vegas itself — and what better way to pay honor the storied desert town than with a song that kinda encapsulates it. And yes, Frank’s version of ‘My Way’ is the most well-known … so they’re kicking it off with that one.
Anyway, we’re told the Super Bowl broadcast as CBS shows action shots of the players … like Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes and Christian McCaffrey.
From there, our sources say CBS will transition to interviews with players’ families … talking about their dads, sons, husbands and brothers … all underscored by a new mix of “My Way.”
We know what the new “My Way” mix entails too … our sources tell us there’s going to be a live orchestra, with Sinatra singing on the big screens inside and outside The Sphere, the newest concert venue on The Strip.
BTW, Usher‘ himself will also give a ‘My Way’ shout-out during his halftime performance … and we’re told it’ll be one for the books and incredibly powerful. So, yeah … the ‘My Way’ theme will be a running throughout the course of the game, it seems — start to finish.
Bottom line … it’s a tip of the hat to Fabulous Las Vegas, and CBS/the NFL are leaning all the way into it.
While what happens in Vegas usually stays in Vegas … everyone’s gonna hear about this one.
