As we draw closer to Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey, we are beginning to learn more and more details about the entertainment that will be taking place that weekend. We had previously known that Bruno Mars would be providing the halftime entertainment at MetLife Stadium during the big game, but he will be joined by another group of star performers.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be joining Bruno Mars on stage for the Super Bowl halftime show.

There has been no official announcement made by the league, but one is expected to take place today during halftime of the NFL divisional playoff round game between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks. The game is set to air on FOX.

The NFL has avoided using musicians that could spark some controversy during their performances after the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction and M.I.A.’s ill-timed flipping of the bird, so they will have to be hoping that the band’s bassist, Flea, comes out wearing more than just his bass guitar to cover his man parts.
