Red Hot Chili Peppers To Perform Before Seahawks at Rams

The Red Hot Chili Peppers and CeeLo Green will help kick off Sunday's game between the Seahawks and Rams.

The stars are coming out to help celebrate the first NFL game in Los Angeles in 22 years, with the Rams announcing this week that rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers will help kick off the club's home-opener against the Seahawks with a special pregame performance, while CeeLo Green will sing the national anthem.

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll, a well-known music fanatic, was asked Wednesday by the Rams media if he's a fan of the Chili Peppers, who formed in the L.A.-area in 1983.

"Oh I am," Carroll said via conference call. "I listen to them, yeah. I can play a couple for you, if you want."

For 12s attending Sunday's game, gates to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum open at 11 a.m. PT. Fans should be in their seats 30 minutes prior to kickoff to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers play.

Pro Tip: Head to the Seahawks Road Crew's Sunday tailgate before making your way into the stadium for the performance, as it's a place where plenty of 12s - as well as Richard Sherman's family and former Seahawks Jordan Babineaux and Tyrone Rodgers - are sure to be congregating leading up to kickoff.

Fun Fact: The last time the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed at a Seahawks game was in February 2014, when the band played at halftime of Super Bowl XLVIII alongside Bruno Mars. Of course, Seattle won that game 43-8 over the Denver Broncos.
