  Future Super Bowl locations: Host cities, stadiums for Super Bowl 2019 & beyond Stadium quality is among the priorities when the NFL considers sites for future Super Bowl locations, which is why all of the next four Super Bowls will be played in new or recently renovated stadiums. That’s why Minnesota was awarded Super Bowl 52 in 2018, after all. With weather also being a factor when the NFL considers future Super Bowl locations, brand-new and climate-controlled U.S. Bank Stadium was the reason "Bold North" was possible. The league wanted to show off the impressive stadium during America’s most-watch sporting event.

Power has risen by 14bhp to 577bhp at 6000rpm, while torque extends by 66lb ft to a stout 626lb ft between 2500 and 3500rpm.

The increased reserves are channelled through a nine-speed AMG Speedshift TCT automatic gearbox and an AMG Performance 4Matic four-wheel drive system that now apportions drive in a 40:60 front-to-rear split instead of the 50:50 front-to-rear-split of the previous G63.

Despite a kerb weight of 2485kg, Mercedes-AMG claims the new G63 accelerates to 62mph some 0.9sec inside the time quoted for its predecessor at just 4.5sec. Its nominal top speed has also risen by 6mph to a limited 137mph.

  Bruno Mars wants to curate hip-hop heavy 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show Bruno Mars is offering up his services to "help curate" the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show in Atlanta, Georgia to shine a light on the city's hip-hop history. Less than 24 hours after the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots to lift the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy, the Uptown Funk hitmaker reached out to National Football League officials via Twitter on Monday (05Feb18) to propose some ideas for next season's big game, which is set to take place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on 3 February (19). Suggesting American football bosses take advantage of the wealth of rap talent from the city, he wrote, "@NFL you have the opportunity to celebrate incredible Hip Hop Artist (sic) from Atlanta Next year Outkast. T.I Gucci (Mane), lil jon, Jeezy, Jermaine Dupri just to name a few. it would be the best party Tv has ever seen!" "@NFL S**t I just wanna help curate that show, and I'll only charge like a billion," he joked. "@NFL all jokes aside please lets make that happen (sic)". NFL chiefs will begin talks with possible performers for the 2019 sporting extravaganza later this year (18), but Bruno has plenty of experience, having headlined the 2014 halftime show in addition to joining Coldplay and Beyonce to rock the 2016 bash.
