Red Hot Chili Peppers performed at the LA Rams’ first game in Los Angeles since 1994 last night (September 18).
The band played at the city’s Memorial Coliseum before the team made their National Football League (NFL) debut against the Seattle Seahawks, following a two decade absence.
As part of their pre-game set the band, performed their 2002 hit ‘Can’t Stop’ as well as recent single ‘Dark Necessities’. You can watch footage of the performance below.
The game marked the first regular season NFL game to be played in the city since December 1994, after which the team moved to St. Louis, Missouri.

A number of stars came out to support the Rams on their homecoming, including basketball legends LeBron James and Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson, actress Elizabeth Banks and actor Danny Trejo.
Chili Peppers bassist Flea recently shared his thoughts on why Corden’s Carpool Karaoke has become such a runaway success.
Flea and his bandmates took a ride with Corden for the buzzy Late Late Show segment in June.
Recalling his experience shooting Carpool Karaoke with the British actor-comedian, Flea told NME: “James is just such a nice man and so generous of spirit and makes you all feel so comfortable and creates a really fun environment and it’s all about having fun and connecting with the music.”
“You can tell that he really feels music and has a sincere joy for it,” Flea continued. “As someone whose life is centred around connecting with people through music, I could really relate to him and was just happy to hang out with him. And I think for most people, that’s a lot of fun. He’s great at his job.”
“That guy, is really good at his job,” Flea added. “I don’t think anyone else could do that and so that’s why he’s doing it so well.” Watch Flea discussing Carpool Karaoke backstage at Reading below.
