Bruno Mars - Red Hot Chili Peppers Super Bowl XLVIII

Today news got out that this year’s Super Bowl (XLVIII) will be more awesome thanks to the addition of the Red Hot Chili Peppers as special guests. I’m not sure exactly how this pairing will be working out creatively but the occasion calls for something truly spectacular and we would be safe to assume that they wouldn’t deliver anything short of that. New York will be celebrating in style, staying true to its name as “capital of the world” by hosting shows by the likes of J. Cole, Foo Fighters, Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon, John Legend, The Black Keys, Drake (+ Diddy) that weekend.

I believe Pursuit Of Dopeness just got a real valid excuse to try and make it to NYC at the end of the month…
