Red Hot Chili Peppers played several fan favorites like “Dani California,” Under the Bridge” and “By the Way.” The setting also inspired guitarist Josh Klinghoffer to perform a solo piano version of Radiohead’s “Pyramid Song.”

More than a million people watched the concert on live-stream. At last check, the Peppers were working on their 12th studio album. It would follow 2016’s The Getaway.
