Montauk’s own Chad Smith–drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chickenfoot, and Will Ferrell lookalike–will be playing in the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show. According to CBS Sports, aside from Chad, Anthony Kiedis, Michael “Flea” Balzary and Josh Klinghoffer, the other performer at the world’s most famous football game of the year will be Bruno Mars.
Chad was last seen on the stage alongside Nancy Atlas at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor. Her Fireside Sessions will continue with special guests every Friday night through February.
The Super Bowl will be held on Sunday, February 2, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. I’ll definitely try to tune in to watch our local guy, in between Academy Award breaks.
