The feud between the San Francisco 49ers and Santa Clara mayor Lisa Gillmor continues. The two parties are at odds regarding the running of Levi's Stadium, the three-year-old stadium located in Santa Clara that is the home of the 49ers. The 49ers have denied any accusations that have come from city organizations and the mayor herself.

On Friday, two days after a U2 performance at Levi's Stadium, the 49ers are under attack again. The concert broke a 10 p.m. city curfew law and the 49ers management team is being accused of disturbing the peace of the surrounding neighborhoods. The concert ended nearly an hour past the deadline, forcing the city to take notice and action.


"They deliberately and willfully violated the law," Gillmor told KPIX 5.

On Thursday night, the city of Santa Clara issued the following statement:

"We will pursue all appropriate legal action and take steps to ensure this doesn't happen again."



"We cannot effect (our community's) quality of life," Gillmor continued. "It's already affected in terms of traffic, litter, garbage, noise, those types of things."

A 49ers spokesman told KPIX-5 that the concert was scheduled to end at 10 p.m. and they are unsure why it extended past the curfew, but the opening act took the stage later than expected. The 49ers said that they received no noise complaints from Wednesday night's concert.

What is interesting is that, according to KPIX-5, the 49ers were proactive and asked for a curfew extension in case the concert went past the curfew. They were denied. However, next-door neighbor, Great America, has received about 30 curfew extensions from the city for special events at the amusement park. The city of Santa Clara appears to be against doing the 49ers any similar favors.

Levi's Stadium's next big concert will feature Coldplay on October 4th. That concert will also be held on a Wednesday.
