Red Hot Chili Peppers were already planning to be in New York for a Super Bowl weekend concert.

Now, they'll join Super Bowl XLVIII halftime headliner Bruno Mars during his halftime festivities.

Mars appeared on the Fox-TV's coverage of the New Orleans Saints-Seattle Seahawks NFL playoff game Saturday and made the announcement.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently scheduled to headline the WFAN-sponsored 'Big Hello to Brooklyn' bash on Feb. 1 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The group's tour schedule is sparse at the moment, with the Brooklyn show being the band's next date. Afterward, they'll head to the Philippines in February and South America in late March and April for several festivals including Lollapalooza Chile and Lollapalooza Argentina.
