The Red Hot Chili Peppers gave a surprise performance at the high school where Chad Smith’s children attend today.

The performance, taking place at Viewpoint School in Calabasas, California, was part of an assembly celebrating Halloween.

Each member of the band was dressed in costume. Smith wore a combined Guy Fawkes mask and Pope attire. Flea wore a skeleton body suit whilst Anthony Kiedis wore shorts and a mask. Josh Klinghoffer meanwhile wore a green wig and some sunglasses.

Recently, frontman Kiedis was ejected from an LA Lakers basketball game this weekend following an incident with his sporting teams rivals’ staff and players.

Kiedis was booted out on October 21 after allegedly shouting profanities at Chris Paul, a member of the Rockets team. He was also have alleged to flip the middle finger at Paul before he was escorted out of the stadium.

Meanwhile, it was confirmed last month that Red Hot Chili Peppers are about to head back into the studio.

The upcoming record will be the band’s 12th and the follow-up to 2016’s ‘The Getaway’. In a three-star reviewNME said the album featured “a reluctance to take too many risks” but was “progress” from its predecessor, ‘I’m With You.’
