While the initial announcement of pop sensation Bruno Mars as the featured halftime performer at this year’s Super Bowl had some questioning his star power to pull off the high-profile performance, he’ll have some additional muscle backing him up with the news  that the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be joining him.

According to the L.A. Times, Mars will formally announce his new Super Bowl partners during TV coverage of the second-round NFL playoff game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints scheduled for tomorrow (Jan. 11).

It won’t be much of a commute  for the Chili Peppers, with Anthony Kiedis and the crew also set to headline the massive “Big Hello to Brooklyn” concert happening at the Barclays Center arena the night before (Feb. 1) the big game that will occur at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium. The concert is being presented by sports radio station, WFAN (a Radio.com station), and is already sold out.

The addition of the Red Hot Chili Peppers  to the Super Bowl halftime show only bolsters an already music-packed seven days during “Super Bowl Week” leading up to the game.
