US acts united during Super Bowl XLVIII to perform 'Give It Away'

Bruno Mars was joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers for a performance of the US band's 'Give It Away' during last night's Super Bowl XLVIII half-time show (February 2).

Mars put on the annual half-time show during the match between Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, performing songs from his back catalogue including 'Locked Out of Heaven' and 'Treasure'. Midway through the set, he began to sing 'Give It Away' before being joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers for a rendition of the US band's 1991 hit single.
