Red Hot Chili Peppers fansite, news page and forum with dedicated RHCP magazine scan and articles section featuring Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, Flea Michael Balzary, Josh Klinghoffer and John Frusciante.
I’ve been chatting to the person behind this program. Is anyone interested? 🙂

DM on Facebook @convincemetolikethisband or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to submit your entry.”
EDIT: This is now on YouTube to watch! Really worth checking out with all sorts of interesting things accompanied by information.
The RHCP Live Archive fan site is showcasing a “DEEP DIVE fan stream” on Saturday with two hours of first shows, last shows, first performances, ONLY performances, demos, rare studio out-takes… all in one place.
As this year’s Isle of Wight Festival has sadly been cancelled, they are screening a virtual festival over the weekend the real event should have taken place featuring previous performers at the festival and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are included as they played the festival in 2014.
The streaming is taking place on two platforms, but it’s not clear if they will be the same thing or different from what I’ve read so far. One is Sky Arts and the other, Absolute Radio. Both things start at 7 p.m. UK time and run until midnight. RHCP will feature during the Saturday night streaming.
How to View/Listen
Sky Arts is part of varying TV packages so it will depend on if you have access to it or not.
Absolute Radio is available from a number of outlets including DAB radio, smart speakers and online. However, I’ve got some friends outside Britain to test this for me as Absolute Radio used to only be available within the UK and sadly this still seems to be the case. The only way to access it would be to use a VPN with a British IP address.
Last night, RHCP’s John Frusciante and Flea hosted a two hour show on Dublab. They were selecting and playing tracks which influenced them in their youth, and while it was mostly music, there was some chat and reminiscing in-between with a couple of Chili Pepper anecdotes thrown in.
Longer version with some songs although it’s not the full thing:
Neither my Sisterwitch (who found this) nor myself have seen this before, so we reckon it’s fairly rare. It’s just made its way onto YouTube, but was originally recorded in October 1995 for Nöjesrevyn Special. Features Anthony, Chad and Dave (and don’t watch with the vicar or kids in the room!) Enjoy!
Pathway to Paris Earth Day 50: A Virtual Festival to Our Planet
Pathway to Paris are hosting a virtual livestream festival in celebration of Earth Day’s 50th anniversary via their Instagram account. RHCP’s Flea is among a number of celebrities who are due to take part in the event. It will livesteam on Sunday 26th April starting at 4:00 p.m. EST.
Update on the Cairo/ Pyramids Concert/ Documentary. URGENT ACTION NEEDED! Please help try to get a change of decision! (Details below).
Sadly, this has now been pulled by RHCP’s management and currently will NOT be released due to the change in band members.
So many of us would love to have that documentary and we’ve been looking forward to its release. We saw the live footage of the concert at the time and it was amazing. And there’s the interviews, etc. which we haven’t seen. I know people were looking forward to it even more given the cancellation of the upcoming US shows (and expected cancellation of the others) and there was a lot of excitement about the news it was coming yesterday (this is why the post about it was removed).
If you would like to see this, please could you message ASAP Flea and Chad on their social media accounts and especially RHCP’s management- there is a chance we could get this decision reversed today if enough people say they would like it:
Flea was interviewed for ” The Trap Set with Joe Wong.” It is mostly personal stuff, taking about memories, reading/authors, Acid For The Children, etc. There is limited mention of the Red Hot Chili Peppers but he talks about them writing and working with John (about 52 minutes in).
