Dark Necessities

Zephyr Song

Aeroplane

I Like Dirt

Californiction

Higher Ground

Don’t Forget Me

(By The Way Not played due to technical issues)*

Give It Away (shown on several videos)

Notes:

*Article on  Billboard Website about the event and also detailing the song change from the set list:

By the way… how does it go again? 

The finale of the night provided the lucky guests with a bizarre rarity: the Chili Peppers forgetting how to play one of their biggest hits. Flea and Klinghoffer turned to face each, apparently to start their 2002 smash “By the Way,” but looked completely perplexed by the horrendous, out-of-tune racket they created. For a good minute, the duo looked utterly stumped as guests giggled (“I blame the bass tech” quipped Kiedis) before Flea switched out his instrument and the band launched into a note-perfect “Give It Away.” As back-up plans go, it’s a pretty good one to have up your sleeve.

*The setlist was leaked pre-concert to much excitement about the inclusion of Sikamikanico which saw its live debut as a gift to Josh for his birthday.

Anthony Kiedis, at the end of Sikamikanico:

“That was our gift to Josh Klinghoffer. [Thank you].  It’s his birthday; and when he was a fifteen year old boy, out in the San Fernando Valley, he got a hold of that song and that time he was a drummer, wasn’t really playing the guitar. He was frickin’ killing the skins, one skin at a time, and he learned how to play that sh*t on the drums so now, what have we got, is it 25 years later?, he’s rocking that sh*t on the guitar. Happy Birthday, Josh!”

Out of the Annals: 1996 Interview with Chad and AK

This interview from 1996 has just been posted on YouTube. I’ve not seen it before so I’m assuming some of you haven’t either 🙂 It’s a French interview but talking to Chad and AK in London. It starts with the Warped video but after that moves on to discuss One Hot Minute, Dave Navarro, Anthony comments on the French government performing a nuclear test in Tahiti, and Chad compares OHM to a bottle of French wine…Naturally!
