Despite already being 0-1, the Los Angeles Rams’ first regular season game in Southern California in 22 years is sure to be red-hot.

On Sunday, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to kick off the Rams inaugural season back in Los Angeles with a pregame performance. The gates will open two hours prior to the game’s 1 p.m. start at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and the band will perform around 30 minutes before the Rams take on their division rival Seattle Seahawks.


The Rams were in Los Angeles for 48 years before taking off for St. Louis in 1995. This is their first season back in Los Angeles — and they’ve already gone Hollywood: Earlier this summer, they were featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks.
