UPDATED: Video of the whole show added at the bottom of the page

Today/yesterday (time zones!) the Red Hot Chili Peppers played a concert for iHeart Radio to a crowd of 200 fans who had won tickets through competitions for the show. The concert was recorded and will be broadcast on June 17th which is the launch date for RHCP’s new album ”The Getaway.’

New songs from ‘The Getaway’ were played at the concert and as a result, security at the concert was tight with guests searched and no recording devices were allowed in. Dark Necessities got its second public live performance (the first being at last weekend’s Rock On The Range festival in Ohio) and Sick Love, This Ticonderoga and Go Robot were played for the first time.

Other Information:
They discussed that Sick Love is the song that features Elton John (I’m in England, can I name him? Or is it only his partner we can’t discuss without the threat of law suits?!) and apparently it’s “really slow and mellow”. It was also played twice to allow for an edit as there were mistakes made while playing it the first time.

 Many thanks to Angra who was there!!!!

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.
