The Red Hot Chili Peppers, one of the most quintessential SoCal bands of the past 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 marched on, funk bassist Thundercat and alternative rocker Beck warmed up the eclectic crowd with their opening sets. Despite the fact that the headliners were almost elderly, the audience was extremely mixed from one generation to the next. A mother and her young adult daughter sharing a joint as the Chili Peppers took the stage is a perfect example of how the band can appeal to partygoers of all ages.
By the time the lights went down for the main act, the crowd was full, eager to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.
