NEW YORK (AP) - Bruno Mars will have help from the Red Hot Chili Peppers when he performs at the Super Bowl next month.
Mars announced Saturday that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will join him as part of his halftime show.
Super Bowl halftime performers often have collaborators. Last year, Beyonce had Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams from her Destiny's Child days join her onstage, and two years ago Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. joined Madonna for her halftime show.
Mars was named Billboard's 2013 artist of the year. His hits include the No. 1 song "When I Was Your Man" and his Grammy-nominated sophomore album, "Unorthodox Jukebox," has sold almost 2 million copies.
