Bruno Mars will be performing during the halftime show for Super Bowl XLVIII, but he won’t be alone. Red Hot Chili Peppers will be joining the singer as a sudden addition to the performance. New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium is the arena for Super Bowl this year and will of course take place on the 2nd of February.
This announcement to add the Red Hot Chili Peppers to the Super Bowl halftime show is said to become public during the Saturday game when the Seattle Seahawks play the New Orleans Saints. Bruno Mars’ spokeswoman declined a comment when approached about the manner. The decision comes as an attempt to please viewers that prefer a music style different Mars’ genre.
As luck would have it, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are performing at a three-day event the day before the Super Bowl. This event is actually only one of the many multiple day performances to be enjoyed leading up to the big game on February 2. The “Bud Light Hotel” has a docked cruise party with artists such as Imagine Dragons and the Foo Fighters. A planned New York rap tribute includes performances from Busta Rhymes Run-D.M.C. and many more. Another event, “Evenings With Legends” features John Legend, Band of Horses, and the Black Keys also in New York at the end of January. If Mars decides that the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show could use a few surprise guests, a great number of artists could easily be grabbed up.
Hopefully Mars will recruit some of these nearby artist to spice up the event even more. In the past older viewers have had more familiar artists to enjoy such as the Rolling Stones and The Who, but currently there is still room to please such viewers. There are a lot of different audiences tuning into Super Bowl XLVIII, millions will be watching; last year’s Super Bowl had more than 100 million viewers. If the Red Hot Chili Peppers do join the show they will certainly need to dress for the occasion, (more than socks) according to the Farmer’s Almanac the forecast calls for snow.
It is currently not know how the Red Hot Chili Peppers intend to perform. Bruno Mars may play with his band or possibly collaborate with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Due to the bands scheduled events it is possible that the Red Hot Chili Peppers won’t have time to practice a collaboration with Mars.
Super Bowl XLVIII is less than a month away and the anticipation building in fans is nearly palpable. As for the halftime show, Bruno Mars is scheduled to perform, but is said to have invited the Red Hot Chili Peppers to join him. It is currently unknown as to how they will perform or if other artists will join them on the big stage. 2014 is already off to a big start and Super Bowl XLVIII will probably dominate the televisions of many this February 2.
