D+D’s Hamish Hamilton Makes Super Bowl Halftime Directing History
The Super Bowl Halftime show is a career-defining moment for musicians and directors alike. After directing stars like Beyonce, Madonna, Maroon 5 and Lady Gaga, Hamish Hamilton once again directed the biggest show in the world in 2021, continuing his legacy that has been in place for more than 10 years.
This year, Hamilton directed The Weeknd who performed live in Tampa at Super Bowl LV. The Super Bowl Halftime show often has viewership that exceeds the entire rest of the game, with an audience for Katy Perry's performance in 2015 attracting 118.5 million viewers, compared to the average game audience of 114.4 million.
