Fans have reacted to Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ headline set at T In The Park.

The Californian band closed the final day of the Perthshire festival tonight (July 10) with a set comprised of greatest hits and tracks from their new album ‘The Getaway’.

Ahead of the band’s set, drummer Chad Smith joined Jake Bugg during his set to play drums on ‘Slumville Sunrise’.

Later, he revealed that Bugg told him not to break the drums before he joined the Nottingham musician on stage at T In The Park.

The drummer spoke to Edith Bowman on BBC Four ahead of the Californian band’s headline set at the festival, during which he explained how the collaboration came about.

“I went on with my buddy Jake and played a song, it was fun,” he said of his cameo on ‘Slumville Sunrise’. “I played with Jake on ‘Shangri-La’ – the one before the last one – so we know each other pretty well.

“It was nice cos he was like ‘We’re on the same bill at T, come down’, so I was like ‘sure, man’. [He said] ‘don’t break the drums, though, alright?’ I’ll try!”

Opinion was split between fans, with one Twitter user writing: “Let’s be honest the Red Hot Chili Peppers have only ever been a jalapeño.” Another wrote: “The red hot chili peppers have to be the highlight of the weekend”.
