Red Hot Chili Peppers Join Bruno Mars For Super Bowl Halftime Show

Written by Greg Moskovitch on January 12, 2014

Modern rock legends the Red Hot Chili Peppers will join reigning pop king Bruno Mars on 2nd February for the 2014 NFL Super Bowl halftime show, one of the single biggest televised events of the year. Last year’s performance featuring Beyonce garnered 110.5 million viewers.

“One of the most successful acts in rock history, Red Hot Chili Peppers, which is singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer, Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, have sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs, and won six Grammy Awards,” read a statement by the National Football League, who made the announcement over the weekend via Fox.

Meanwhile, the 28-year-old Mars expressed his excitement over the gig to Billboard, saying, “My band and I have been rehearsing. We can’t wait to get out onto that field and perform. We’re excited. I hope the fans expect to have some fun with us. They keep telling us that it might be freezing out there and we have never performed in such conditions, but we’re all excited.”

Past halftime show performers include Michael Jackson, U2, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, The Who, Prince, The Rolling Stones, and Janet Jackson with Justin Timberlake, who caused a major controversy with their 2004 halftime performance “wardrobe malfunction.”

The most-watched Super Bowl of all time occurred in 2012, when the New York Giants faced off against the New England Patriots, with over 111 million people tuning in to watch the Giants take home victory over the Patriots. Australian carriers for the 2014 Super Bowl are yet to be announced.
