A little bit of spice has been added to Bruno Mars’ Super Bowl Halftime show in the form of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Early this weekend, it was revealed that the California-based band would be joining Bruno Mars during the iconic halftime show at this year’s Super Bowl.
According to the Los Angeles Times who broke the news, the band was invited to join the singer by his personal invitation. The Chili Peppers were already scheduled to perform in that area as part of a pre-Super Bowl show in Brooklyn for WFAN’s “Say Hello to Brooklyn” showcase at the Barclays Center on February 1.
At the current moment, it has not been revealed whether The Chili Peppers will be taking the place of Mars’ usual backing band or if it’s going to be a one shot deal with the band coming on stage to perform one of their own tracks with Mars singing.
No matter the reasoning behind the decision, the NFL should be a little grateful for it because the invitation might bring in a wider range of fans to watch the halftime showing increasing the already high ratings it usually garners.
The NFL’s biggest night is set to take place on February 2 in New Jersey.
