Live from New York City’s Times Square, Bruno Mars joined the NFL Fox Sunday season kick off telecast to announce that he will be performing the Pepsi Halftime show at Superbowl XLVIII.
“It’s an honor,” Mars said yesterday (Sept. 8). “We just got off tour, so to be able to come to New York City and announce this right now … we’re celebrating for sure.
With this news, Mars joins an outstanding legacy of performances that most recently includes Beyoncé, who surprised the crowd with a Destiny’s Child reunion; and Madonna, who invited special guests Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. on stage with her.
As to what surprises the “Treasure” singer may have planned, “It’s five months from now, so I got some phone calls to make,” he said.
This season’s game takes place Feb. 2, at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
