The Red Hot Chili Peppers are officially set to join Bruno Mars onstage at the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show.

The news was announced yesterday on Fox during an NFC divisional playoff game featuring the New Orleans Saints at the Seattle Seahawks.

An official press release from the NFL stated that the "Locked Out of Heaven" singer had invited RHCP to join him for the February 2nd performance at the MetLife stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

(Mars' upcoming performance was announced back in September on Fox NFL Sunday in a live broadcast from Times Square.)

"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," the release noted.

The Chili Peppers are currently in the middle of a major world tour, which included a number of impressive headlining shows at big festivals last year including Coachella, ACL, Orion, Outside Lands and Firefly.

The bands' biggest hits include "Give It Away," "Scar Tissue, "Dani California" and "Under the Bridge."
