Bruno Mars won't be the only act taking the stage at Super Bowl halftime this year.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers will join him at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. on Feb. 2. The six-time Grammy-winning band -- featuring singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer -- released its most recent studio album, "I'm With You," in 2011.

Smith tweeted following the news:



There have been multiple performers for Super Bowl halftime before. Last year, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams joined Beyonce onstage, and Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. performed with Madonna the year before
