VIDEO: Red Hot Chili Peppers perform with Post Malone at Grammy Awards

The Red Hot Chili Peppers teamed up with Post Malone for a performance at the 61st annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 10.

Nominated at the event for four awards – including Album Of The Year - Malone took the stage to perform an acoustic take on “Stay” from his second record, “Beerbongs & Bentleys”, before adding a snippet of his hit, “Rockstar”, and joining the Peppers for “Dark Necessities”, the lead single from their 2016 release, “The Getaway.”

The California rockers wrapped up an 18-month world tour in support of “The Getaway” last October; in the Grammys pre-show broadcast on the red carpet, singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith confirmed the band were writing material for the follow-up to their eleventh album.

Last fall, Flea issued his memoir, “Acid For The Children”, via Grand Central Publishing.

“Iconic bassist and co-founder of the immortal Red Hot Chili Peppers finally tells his fascinating life story,” says the publishers, “complete with all the dizzying highs and the gutter lows you'd expect from an L.A. street rat turned world-famous rock star.”

The Peppers will begin an almost month-long series of shows in Australia and New Zealand in Hobart, AU on February 17.
