Chilli Peppers Definitely Were Not Plugged In

DETROIT (97.1 THE TICKET) – If you watched the halftime show during the Super Bowl you knew something was terribly wrong when the Red Hot Chilli Peppers came to the stage … and we’re not talking about the shirtless-ness, not now anyway!

They explained why they did not really play guitar. Do you have a problem with this? We bag the singers. Is it different?

A Message From Flea

Dear everybody,

When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded.

I understand the NFL’s stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers.

There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.
