Location: Summer Sonic Festival (Day 1) Osaka, Japan
RHCP played a very short set due to circumstances beyond their control.
There was a typhoon the day before the concert which meant the stage wasn’t installed in time and consequently, this had a knock on effect on the concert as the stage had to be completed before it could go ahead. The gates were supposed to open at 10 a.m. but didn’t open until 3 p.m. The first three bands were cancelled with the remaining bands playing a reduced set.
It seems that RHCP then reduced their set by another song as 11 songs are shown on the setlist (photo below) but people are reporting that they played 10 songs (“Go Robot” seems to have been omitted).

From Daniel: Riff from “Out in L.A” was played as their opening-jam.
Many thanks to May Mendosa, Chifumi Soga and Daniel Tokheim Dalskau for the info from Osaka! Thanks to everyone who has shared videos on social media and last but not least, thanks also to the other witch for all of the links!
I was very kindly given virtually the entire backlog of Q magazines. I’m wading my way through them looking for RHCP related stuff and today I’ve scanned the things I’ve found so far (about halfway through the magazines). Here’s a round up of what I’ve scanned and uploaded to date:
There are a number of concert adverts which I’ve put together on one page as it’s not worth posting them separately: Concert ads page
I share my magazine collection with other RHCP fans as a way of giving something back to the community. It costs me a considerable amount of money, not only for the magazines, but for the website hosting and domain names. Unlike social media accounts, websites are not free and have to be paid for. I don’t share them as an Instagram resource that other people can just take for free because they can’t be bothered to source their own material. Each page I scan takes about 5-10 minutes to actually scan and then upload, and transcripts can take a couple of hours for the lengthy ones. Plus,there’s the time I spend searching for the magazines, bidding on them, asking questions about delivery…
I’ve always requested that people just add a link back if they take stuff but that’s too much to ask for some people. Instagram rules state that content on there must be original- not sure what’s original about copying it wholesale from a website!- anyway, but it’s annoying when I have my own social media accounts to find that somebody has taken a magazine I bought and beaten me to sharing it, especially on Instagram, so now I can’t even though I paid for the article and did all of the work. I went onto Insta this morning and a WHOLE article had been copied, with no credit back to this website or my Anthonykiedis.net one. It’s also annoying that Instagram crops everything so the version shared is not as good as the original.
Please be considerate. Link back and please don’t just take whole article. Thanks x
Location: Private “Coachella East” themed event hosted by Sukey and Mike Novogratz in Amagansett, East Hampton, USA
There was a livestream on the official Chili Peppers’ page on Instagram, but it was coming and going (it swapped to David Mushegain’s own account at times too). Some songs are missing as a result on the videos taken from the stream.
Around The World
The Zephyr Song
Snow ((Hey Oh))
Don’t Forget Me
*Soul to Squeeze
By The Way
*Give It Away
Note*: These songs were definitely on the livestream so the set must have changed from the list. The other songs may have been played but they were not on the livestream.
Screenshots during the livestream:
Many thanks to David Mushegain for battling with the livestream- so appreciated!
I’m not sure exactly what it is but RHCP are playing/doing something in East Hampton tonight. I’d heard on the grapevine that they were going to be there but the details were very vague, but Flea has now posted from there. AK flew out to New York a day or so ago, Josh is in NY too as he’s visited a record shop and been photographed there and it sounds rather like Chad on those drums…
