FOX Finally Confirms Red Hot Chili Peppers for Super Bowl Halftime Show

Shortly after the NFL confirmed Bruno Mars as its marquee performer for the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show, FOX announcer Erin Andrews reported that other performers would join the singer-songwriter at the center of MetLife Stadium on February 2.

Those other artists, she said, would be revealed throughout the regular season.

That regular season ended two weeks ago, and nary a single new performer had been announced by the network, which hosts the upcoming Super Bowl.

Until today.

During FOX’s coverage of the Seattle Seahawks vs. New Orleans Saints divisional playoff game, the network announced that veteran rock act the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be joining Mars on stage.

The act, which most recently released an album in 2011, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two years ago.
