Red Hot Chili Peppers Concert Review and Tickets

August 23, 2006

Check out Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets here.

A burst of rare summer thunderstorms rained down on fans waiting in line to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers Monday (8/21) at the Phoenix area’s Glendale Arena, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the near-sold out crowd.

Drenched fans crowded souvenir stands to buy dry, warm clothes during the opening set by The Mars Volta, whose erratic, frenzied performance paled in comparison to The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ chill-inducing, explosive set.

Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith kicked off the set with an instrumental funk jam. Once finished, black-and-white-clad singer Anthony Kiedis arrived on stage like a boxer preparing for a fight. Frusciante’s opening riff to “Can’t Stop” sent the audience into a frenzy as Smith tossed a drum stick in the air, but missed when trying to catch it. That sent the Michigan-bred drummer into laughter. Four video screens with black-and-white footage of the band slowly arose from behind Smith, complementing the giant wall of lights that filled the back of the stage. A wall of horizontal lights also ascended from the top of the stage and extended to the scoreboard in the middle of the arena.

The band followed “Can’t Stop” with a pitch-perfect rendition of “Dani California,” from its first No. 1 album, “Stadium Arcadium.” Audience members simultaneously released their fists as Kiedis sang the chorus, during which the video screens alternated quickly between shots of Frusciante’s and Flea’s fingers.

It was hard to tell what was more popular with the crowd: Kiedis’ punchy dancing, Frusciante’s blistering guitar solos or Flea’s slap-happy bass licks. During “Dani California,” some fans played air guitar to Frusciante’s parts, and others danced spastically to solos by Flea, who was dressed like a Cirque du Soleil member.

“I hope you all brought love to this party,” Kiedis said during a rare word to the audience. “That’s all you need to bring.”.

Adding to the 1-2-3 punch of the opening numbers, Kiedis’ words segued into “Scar Tissue.” Chandelier-like lights with hidden speakers and search lights descended from the ceiling and lit up the crowd. Proving his athletic prowess is still in tact, Kiedis ended the song with a handstand on Smith’s bass drum.

“Stadium Arcadium” was obviously a big part of the two-hour show, offering “Charlie,” which delivered more heat than the album rendition, “Readymade,” the title track and “Snow (Hey Oh).”

On the covers front, the Chili Peppers played a few bars of “London Calling,” and later Frusciante sang an impressive rendition of Simon and Garfunkel’s “For Emily (Wherever I May Find Her).”

The almost 20-song set also featured the melancholy “Soul to Squeeze,” “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” and “By the Way,” during which red lights searched the audience, landing on random ticket holders. Encores included the mega-hits “Under the Bridge” and “Give It Away.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers Concert News and Tickets

August 12, 2006

Check out Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets here.

Following a sold out tour of Europe, an appearance at the Fuji Festival in Japan and a headlining slot at Lollapalooza, Red Hot Chili Peppers take off this Friday, August 11, for the North American leg of their World Tour in support of the platinum Stadium Arcadium.

The two-CD set, produced by Rick Rubin, debuted at #1 in 28 countries around the world, including the band’s home turf.

This week the band actually has two tracks in the Modern Rock top 10. “Dani California” at #5 has been joined by the newly issued second single “Tell Me Baby” at #10.

In other news, in the video for “Tell Me Baby,” the group’s fans will see the members of the group vying against complete unknowns in what seems to be an audition for a spot in the Chilis, according to MTV News.

The clip was helmed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer), the directorial team behind several Red Hot videos including “Californication,” “Otherside” and “By the Way” and the new independent film “Little Miss Sunshine.” And according to Flea, it’s “the best video of our career.” The bassist even feels the clip is “the most beautiful piece of film that has ever represented us.”

Kanye West, Red Hot Chili Peppers Lead Lollapalooza ‘06 Lineup

August 5, 2006

Check out Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets here.

AUSTIN, Texas — Last year, Perry Farrell was just looking to re-establish the good name of his Lollapalooza festival. This year, with a successful run at Chicago’s Grant Park already under his glittery belt, he was clearly looking to go style points.

So you can understand why — as he strode into the press room of the posh Four Seasons Hotel to announce the lineup for Lollapalooza 2006 (to the strains of the theme from “Good Times”) — he was wearing not just Fred Astaire’s suit jacket, but also a giant smile. After all, he’s put together a group of artists with style to spare.

Kanye West, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Death Cab For Cutie and Queens of the Stone Age are among the more than 70 acts tapped to perform at this year’s Lollapalooza, returning to Chicago August 4-6 (see “Lollapalooza Returning As A Three-Day Festival”).

“It’s a kick-ass lineup. We know you’re going to have a sloppy good time,” Farrell said. “We made a concerted effort to book more hip-hop this year, and to mix it with a bunch of other amazing things too. And what we’ve ended up with is a beautiful, amazing thing.”

This year’s “beautiful, amazing thing” is an eclectic mix of hip-hop (West is joined on the bill by Common, British grime MC Lady Sovereign and Gnarls Barkley — the collaboration between Cee-Lo and producer Danger Mouse), rock (the Flaming Lips, the Shins, Jack White’s Raconteurs, Panic! At the Disco) and, um, jam bands (Blues Traveler, the Disco Biscuits).

More artists will be announced in the coming weeks, with organizers promising a grand total of more than 130 acts on 8 stages.

Last year’s Lolla — billed as a return to basics after an ambitious, coast-to-coast touring fest was canceled due to poor ticket sales in 2004 — was a tremendous success, packing more than 65,000 fans into Grant Park, despite brutal heat and swirling dust storms (see “Lollapalooza Thrives In Withering Heat With Killers, Weezer, Pixies”). And though much of the concert industry was shocked by that success, Farrell said he knew it would happen all along.

“We knew going in last year that it was going to be a challenge, but we pounded away and ended up with something great. But I knew that the formula we had would work, and it did,” Farrell said. “And now, the goal this year is to build on it. I like the idea of always expanding, of adding new wings. We don’t want anyone to come to this year’s Lollapalooza and be like ‘Oh, I’ve seen this already.’ ”
