Because they are the best band ever.... (after coldplay)
I just got back from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers concert... and phooey was it good.
Unlike the other times, I was unable to get the front row or standing area tickets so I was a bit far hence the poor pictures. Although they will have to do for memories sake.
The New gitaurist is really good. He has a way of owning the old songs and kinda transforming them into something that is him but also still recognizeable. FLEA has to be the best bassist ever!!and the never tiring drummer - Chad Smith is too cool!! I was also amazed at how good Anthony and Flea's bodys look... I mean after all these years?! it's a good thing though they look that good if only for their love of being topless.
The set list was also really good. They played a few hits from different albums, carlifornication and I'm with you (Ethiopia which is one of my favorites from their new album), and blood sugar sex magic (which we had never seen them perform live before) and ended the show after a call for encore with 'GIVE IT AWAY' with Femi Kuti - who was the opening act by the way, on the sax.
It was a very memorable night. The only missing thing were my girlfriends from high school, who I used to laze the days after classes away listening and singing along to RHCP songs.
