Though the world will get to see them join Bruno Mars on the Superbowl halftime stage the next day at MetLife stadium, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are joining in on the the pre-Bowl fun when a host of massive acts flood the city for a series of great shows in honor of the game. At Barclays, the Chili Peppers will headline their own funky party that will most likely be filled with plenty of shirtlessness and semi-possessed dancing on the band's end. Though their most recent release, I'm With You, came out nearly two and a half years ago, RHCP has teased the making of another new album since the last tour ended. Maybe they'll premiere a new tune or two this weekend, but no matter what, they won't have to worry about having enough material to make two whole stadiums sing along.
