SANTA CLARA (KRON)– Wednesday night’s Coldplay concert ran past the curfew set by the City of Santa Clara.

The violation added to the fight between city officials and stadium management about time limits on concerts.

The current curfew at Levi’s Stadium is 10 p.m. and Santa Clara originally denied an extension proposed by the band.

The 49ers are worried that the early curfew won’t attract artists. The team claims that a large concert could bring in up to $800,000 which the city could benefit from.

San Francisco 4ers president, Al Guido released a statement:

Public safety officials have been clear that abruptly ending a concert could create a public safety emergency. We followed their direction as it related to the event.  We are concerned that concerts may not come to Levi’s Stadium again unless the music ban is resolved in a way that works for everyone. We have already lost one event and will continue to lose more, costing thousands of local jobs, millions of dollars in needed revenue, and the world-class entertainment options that other major cities enjoy.”

It’s not clear if Coldplay will be fined for violating the curfew.
