Red Hot Chili Peppers to headline MTV EMAs 2011 in Belfast

MTV EMA 2011 identityThis just in! Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to headline the 18th edition of MTV’s Europe Music Awards in Belfast next month. For the first time ever, the event will be broadcasted from three separate locations. It is not clear at which one the band will perform, but the updates should be posted shortly.

RHCP’s spokesperson was quoted as saying:

“We haven’t played in Belfast in a long time, so we’re really looking forward to performing at the ‘2011 MTV EMA’ and seeing all our fans.”

A little reminder: RHCP have never previously performed at this event or even appeared to receive the awards, which they have won multiple times. In 2000, Chad Smith appeared to receive the award on behalf of the entire band, all other times they would record video clips.

About Squitherwitch

I've been a RHCP fan ever since I heard Under The Bridge way back in the mists of time. I brought BSSM and then their other albums but RHCP were just another band I listened to (I was a massive GNR fan at the time) but that changed once I heard Californication! I've been involved with the online RHCP scene since 2006, getting more heavily involved as time passed, and eventually the time was right to set up my own website dedicated to the band and thus, TheChiliSource was born. Since then I've also set up along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.
