The Red Hot Chili Peppersone of the most quintessentially SoCal bands of the last half century, took over the 49ers’ Northern California home over the weekend, playing a sold-out show at Levi’s Stadium on Friday night.
As the crowd filed in, funk bassist Thundercat and alternative rocker Beck warmed up the eclectic crowd with their opening sets. Despite the fact that the headliners were nearly senior citizens, the audience was extremely mixed across generations. A mother and young adult daughter sharing a joint as the Chili Peppers took the stage perfectly exemplified how the band can appeal to partiers of all ages.
By the time the lights dimmed for the main act, the crowd was at capacity, eager to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.
