The Red Hot Chili Peppers are reportedly going to join crooner Bruno Mars for the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show.
According to sources who told Los Angeles Times, Mars will announce later Saturday that he invited them to join him on stage for the Feb. 2 championship football game.
If they do appear during the halftime show, it will mark the second time during Super Bowl festivities that the Red Hot Chili Peppers perform. They also will play a day earlier in Brooklyn as part of a pre-Super Bowl party put together by radio station WFAN-AM.
According to Billboard, inviting the Red Hot Chili Peppers to play alongside could help broaden the appeal for the halftime show beyond those who already enjoy the "Locked Out of Heaven" singer.
How the band will be integrated into the halftime show, however, is not known yet. Perhaps they will simply act as Mars' backup band during the show or they could be even more involved, such as playing a song from their own music catalog.
