Red Hot Chili Peppers to Join Bruno Mars at Super Bowl Halftime Show

Bruno Mars x Red Hot Chili Peppers

Bruno Mars won’t be the only one rocking the field come Super Bowl Sunday. The Grammy-winning crooner will reportedly be joined by legendary rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers.

According to the Los Angeles Times, they will team up during the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show on February 2 at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

Bruno is scheduled to make the official announcement during Fox’s broadcast of the New Orleans Saints-Seattle Seahawks playoff game on Saturday.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, who are currently on tour, are also set to play WFAN-AM’s pre-Super Bowl concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on February 1.

Before the Super Bowl, Bruno will compete at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, where he is nominated in four categories including Record and Song of the Year for “Locked Out of Heaven.”

UPDATE: Watch Bruno make the official announcement below.

    The thought that he is headlining the Super Bowl still makes me cringe. He’s talented but there are a million other people that must have turned it down for Bruno Mars to be selected.

    @Raven-Symone, I couldn’t have said it better…I just think his music is overall over rated

    @Raven-Symone, I don’t know why you think that he would be an afterthought. Bruno sings a myriad of genres and has a very unique voice. He sings well live and always has hot performances. You may not care for him that much but he is an internationally known artist and has very respectable record sales in addition to well known songs. Unorthodox Jukebox was one of the best albums of 2012. I’d advise you to take a listen to it because, whether you’re trying to or not, you come across not only as unintelligent but also a “hater.”

    @Pilar, He’s an afterthought because, as Raven-Symone stated, there are a “million” other viable artists which would have been better choices.
    Let’s think about this:
    Madonna, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars…
    One of the names does not belong.

    @Mandela Barb, I always thought they chose artist with large discographies to head line, so its pretty obvious how his set is gonna go.
    He’s a great artist it just seems a little premature.

    Cmon its a bullshit commercial ploy. How about somebody a little heavier. Football a tough sport why done they throw some groups in there that are heavy. Motorhead popular not thrash and heavy enough to be on edge. Just my opinion

    I couldn’t have said it better my self… His music is just too over-rated even though he is talented.

    You know, everything isn’t about R&B/hip-hop. We had Beyonce last year and she did a bang up job but now we have a star, in his own right, succeeding her and I have no doubt will do well. BM is a far from a flop, where do people get this shit from? Damn sure ain’t a poor man’s version of anybody. A lot of people will be eating their words when all is said and done.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers know how to put on a show so I’m excited to see what they are going to do with Bruno Mars. It should be very interesting.

    Bruno’s music is so redundant. He is either loving a woman or crying over her. Loving her. Crying over her. Loving her. Crying over her. Same music from him over and over!
