Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers will take the field at halftime during Super Bowl XLVIII this Sunday, Feb. 2, as the Denver Broncos take on the Seattle Seahawks.
When it comes to the long list of Super Bowl entertainers, Mars is definitely punching above his weight: most acts, such as Bruce Springsteen, The Who, U2, or Prince, had far more than two albums under their belts before they took that halftime stage. What Mars has going for him, however, is an already strong list of hits and he has already proven to be a nimble, engaging live performer..
