Flea Goes Underground

Flea Red Hot Chili Peppers journey to O2 Arena RHCP concert

Newspaper clipping


FLEAS on the London Underground are a very rare problem. In fact, this is the first time ever one has been snapped there.

SINGER astonishes London commuters by taking the Jubilee line and using travel card

Red Hot Chili Peppers have been in residence at the O2 in southeast London and bassist Flea opted for public transport to get to the gig.

Speaking to the 17,000 fans at the sold-out show he said: “I came here on the Jubilee Line tonight and no one noticed.”

It’s not quite panto season yet, but oh yes they did.

The band played a blistering set including Under The Bridge, Give It Away, Can’t Stop and Californication.

I can’t wait to see them here next summer at Knebworth and Sunderland. Then you might find a Flea in a private jet between gigs.

Addition: I was at the concert and was going to include this in my review (will get online with one from Monday night plus the 150+ photos I took on Thursday hopefully later today; if not it will be tomorrow).

Flea mentioned that he caught the 5 o’clock train from Bond Street and went on the Jubilee line to the O2 Arena; he was complaining there were no RHCP fans there to greet him and keep him company! I caught the same train about 4.50…argh! lol

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 AnthonyKiedis.net along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.
