Flea Says the NFL Wouldn’t Let the Chili Peppers Perform Live at the Super Bowl, But the Vocals Were Legit
FLEA has confirmed that the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS were NOT playing their instruments live during the Super Bowl halftime show, because the NFL wouldn’t let them. He said that it was a difficult decision . . . but they went ahead with it, mostly because the vocals WOULD be live.
In a post on the band’s website, FLEA admits that the NFL wouldn’t let them play their instruments live, but ANTHONY KIEDIS’ vocals WERE legit.
He says, quote, “I understand the NFL’s stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage . . .
“There [are] a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.”
He said the band is usually against this sort of thing . . . but after a lot of consideration, they decided to go ahead with it, for the surreal, “once in a lifetime” opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl.
He also said they recorded the music earlier that day, specifically for the Super Bowl. (Here’s his full statement.)
