NEW YORK (AP) — Red Hot Chili Peppers are welcoming home the Los Angeles Rams.

The L.A.-based Chili Peppers will perform at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum before the Rams take on the Seattle Seahawks. The game will be the first NFL game in Los Angeles in 22 years.

The Rams moved to Los Angeles this season after moving to St. Louis in 1994.

Chili Peppers bassist Flea said in a statement "since I was a little boy, I've taken joy in the beauty of the Rams. When I moved to Los Angeles in 1972, I was getting uprooted from my home and I thought, 'Well, where I'm going they've got the Rams. It's going to be all right.'"

The band also includes singer Anthony Kiedis, drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer.
