ROCK IN RIO WILL HAVE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
Get Ready! In January,the Red Hot Chili Peppers will come to Rock in Rio better than ever to make the Brazilians fans crazy
Yes, that’s true! The Red Hot Chili Peppers will be at Rock in Rio. Although the Californication tour ends in 1st September and the boys are with their tongues sticking out – they’re touring since last year- they will open an exception to come to Brazil and Argentina in January.
It’s written with all letters in the band’s website. Do you want a better proof than that?
So you better get ready because they are on fire! It’s hard not to be on fire with vocalist Anthony Kiedis on stage or with Flea’s bass and Chad Smith’s drums. And in their last album Californication, released in June, they returned to count on guitar player John Frusciante, who was the guitar player when they recorded Blood Sugar Sex Magik in 1991, that was the biggest success of the, only losing for Californication.
(by the side of this text there is an image of Anthony and flea that says -”they said there is no way they will be naked at Rock in Rio, but both Anthony and Flea love playing without shirt. Isn’t delicious?”)
Back to top (by the side of this you will see that there is something written ”VOCÊ VOTA” -you vote- in this thing says do you think the Red Hot Chili Peppers should play naked at Rock in Rio? ( ) yes ( ) no Why? Answer in our website www.atrevidahot.com.br)
John left the band because of his drug addiction and troubles to deal with fame. He made this decision in June 1992, and just moved on and didn’t care about leaving the band, which the next week was getting ready for play at Lollapalooza.
”If I had met John in the time he left the band we would end up in a fight. When he came back, I had already prayed so much for him that my angry disappeared” said Anthony.
But this ”get in- get out” isn’t news in the history of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The band had 8 guitar players and 2 drummers. Before Californication, the band spent 3 and half years stopped after released One Hot Minute, that didn’t was too much successful. Anthony started using drugs again and had an accident with his motorcycle. Flea participated of a movie …….. and guitar player Dave Navarro decided get out and come back to his band Spread
That’s when John came back and they recorded Californication. Until June this year the CD sold more than 8 millions of copies, and last year they won Billboard for the single Scar Tissue, the song that spent weeks on the top.

Since the beginning, in 1983, the Red Hot Chili Peppers love a very party and don’t lose the chance to have fun. Their craziness became famous. There are rumours they have sex with girls backstage so they can have more energy on stage. And for girls happiness they love taking off their clothes.
Around 1984, they were at a club in LA named Kit Kat. The attraction of that place were the waitresses that were almost naked. The boys didn’t think twice and put socks on their cocks while they’re playing naked. That became the symbol of The Red Hot Chili Peppers all over the world.
In Brazil they never played naked – Flea played wearing underwear at Hollywood Rock in 1993, but nothing more than that – And for the sadness of the fans, Anthony promised that they are not going to wear socks when they come back for their second show here
”keep doing good old thing when we can create something even better?” explained the vocalist. WOW GET READY, GIRLS!
