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.
There are hundreds of snippet videos of varying quality on social media from the concert- too many to post! Look for #malibulovesesh as well as the usual RHCP ones. The official RHCP page on Instagram currently has really close up videos that were streamed live on their profile photo.
Getty Images France have a lot of photos on their site- I believe GettyImages.com does too but I can’t view them as we’re banned in Europe due to the EU data laws and search options don’t work through VPN.
A fundraiser event, “One Love Malibu,” is taking place to benefit those affected by the Woolsey Fire and Chad Smith will be taking part in it along with a number of other celebrities, including Katy Perry and Taylor Hawkins, with other acts to be confirmed*. The benefit is due to take on 2nd December at the One Gun Ranch. Tickets are on sale now with all proceeds going to the Malibu Foundation and One Love Malibu relief organisations. More information about tickets is available on the One Love Malibu site however, they all seem to be sold at when I checked as posting this,
* The original flyer listed Chris Martin from Coldplay among the performers scheduled to play but the band have released a statement on Twitter saying they are unable to do so.
So sorry, I forgot to post here! I was in Paris with my daughter while they were happening (I took her to a concert by her “bias” so it was crazy! Teenage K-pop fandom. All I need to say!), and I can’t access this site’s interface using my phone (I updated the Facebook page as that’s easy to do).
Quick update: Anthony, Flea and Chad all have houses in the Malibu area affected by the fire. Chad and Josh were in Seattle performing at a benefit concert and Anthony safely evacuated with his son. Flea has posted on his social media accounts saying he and his family were safe and later that his house wasn’t destroyed. I’ve seen an online map and Anthony’s house wasn’t damaged and the house I think is Chad’s is fine too. Houses nearby were sadly destroyed. Obviously, things aren’t settled in the area and I read today that a layer of soot is covering the affected areas so a massive clean up is needed as well as the damaged infrastructure needing to be repaired.
I know people are asking about John. I didn’t think I had any contacts totally forgetting I know someone who is in contact with a family member of his. They enquired on behalf of the fan base. It was confirmed that, as I thought, John doesn’t live in the affected area and is fine as far as anyone knows.
Clearly we’re all grateful that band members and their homes are safe but obviously, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was affected by the fires and especially those who lost their homes. It’s so sad.
Trick or treat?! RHCP performed in Halloween costumes at a LA school today. Chad, Josh and Flea walked onto the stage from the side. Anthony followed them in a few seconds later but walked around the stage in front of the audience, instead of entering the stage from the side as the others had. They played a short intro song with Anthony and Josh crouching on the floor before going into ‘Can’t Stop.’ The band members then wished everyone a Happy Halloween and left the stage. Chris Warren was with there too (on the side of the stage).
Videos are very similar but only short so I’ve added a few of them:
Last night, Will Ferrell’s ‘Best Night In Your Life’ benefit for the ‘Cancer For College’ charity took place at The Greek Theater in LA. It was mostly a night of comedy but there was also a star-studded band providing a musical spot and it featured RHCP’s very own Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer. The set list comprised of two halves with Chris Martin leading the first half and Brad Paisley the second. Josh Klinghoffer also covered a song himself, a cover of Purple Rain.

NOTE: Sorry, I am got going to download and copy (without credit) personal stories from Instagram as some other fan pages do as I assume personal stories are well, personal and I’m currently waiting to see if I get permission to use a friend’s photos who was at the event but I will link to public posts as being public implies it’s OK (will always link to the original and then the poster has the option of changing settings if they wish).
Here are a few things from Instagram (there are a lot more in personal stories if you search for relevant tags). Will update when appropriate.
