Before the performance, Post Malone played his hit tracks beerbongs and bentleys, Stay and rockstar.

Meanwhile, Red Hot Chili Peppers have revealed the reason for their 12th album being "halted".

Drummer Chad Smith spoke to SiriuxXM about the band's new material and and explained that the natural disaster which spread through the southern half of the state causing death and destruction last year, also affected the band's progress.

"We started to work on it, which for us is just getting in a room and making some noise and like putting some notes together,” the sticksman explained to Sirius XM’s Volume West.

“And then the fires came, and the house we were working in – there was no damage, it didn’t burn down, but we couldn’t get back in there. So that halted our... [progress].”
