Red Hot Chili Peppers join Bruno Mars for Super Bowl half-time show – watch

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.

Bruno Mars becomes the latest musical act to play at the Super Bowl and follows Beyoncé, who performed in 2013, as well as The Who, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith and Janet Jackson.

Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed that Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline Isle Of Wight Festival in June.

The show is Red Hot Chili Peppers' first UK festival appearance since 2007.
