Drum Kit From Super Bowl Halftime Show Up For Bids

The Red Hot Chili Peppers and the NFL are auctioning off the drum kit used during Sunday's Super Bowl halftime performance, and all the proceeds are going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Drummer Chad Smith's drum kit, which was decorated with the NFL logos of every team, will be sold individually as two separate kits, one featuring the NFC team logos, and the other featuring the AFC team logos. At the time of this post, the AFC is leading at $12,575 over 49 bids, while the NFC trails at $10,025 over 32 bids. Both auctions close on February 7 at 10 p.m. EST. The auctions are open to the public at nflauction.nfl.com.

Fox announced on Monday that the 2014 Super Bowl halftime show was the most-viewed ever at 115.3 million viewers, according to Nielson data. That makes's Smith's drum kit the most widely seen and heard ever in a single performance in music history. Which is funny, considering the Red Hot Chili Peppers are taking a bit of heat after some of the 115.3 million viewers noticed that their instruments were not plugged in. Bassist Flea acknowledged this by tweeting to fans, "No trickery. No choice, but no trickery."
