Rolling Stones to perform at Super Bowl halftime in Detroit

The Rolling Stones will take a brief break from touring to perform in the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 5 at Ford Field.

"We are thrilled to perform for millions of fans at one of the most exciting and highly anticipated sporting events of the year," the band, which earlier on Tuesday announced its European tour dates, said in a statement.

The Rolling Stones are currently touring North America to promote their latest album, "A Bigger Bang."

The NFL has a history of attracting top acts for its halftime show.

Last season, the primary entertainer was former Beatle Paul McCartney.

That followed Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" in the 2004 game during a performance with Justin Timberlake, the AP reports.
