Red Hot Chili Peppers will cover Led Zeppelin when they play the Super Bowl half-time show.

The rockers will play the prestigious half-time performance at the annual American Football event with Bruno Mars.

Speaking to Artisan News, the band's drummer Chad Smith said the band were surprised to be asked by Mars to play the event with him, but said that his band were all "great people". When asked what they would be playing, Smith replied: "We're going to be playing Led Zeppelin's live version of 'Dazed And Confused'."

Super Bowl XLVIII takes place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on February 2. U2 will premiere their new song 'Invisible' during the event. The track will appear in an advert announcing a new partnership with Bono's charity (RED) and Bank Of America.

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, The Roots and Fall Out Boy will perform at a series of pre-Superbowl events at New York's Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum between January 30 and February 1.
