Location: Summer Sonic Festival (Day 1) Osaka, Japan
RHCP played a very short set due to circumstances beyond their control.
There was a typhoon the day before the concert which meant the stage wasn’t installed in time and consequently, this had a knock on effect on the concert as the stage had to be completed before it could go ahead. The gates were supposed to open at 10 a.m. but didn’t open until 3 p.m. The first three bands were cancelled with the remaining bands playing a reduced set.
It seems that RHCP then reduced their set by another song as 11 songs are shown on the setlist (photo below) but people are reporting that they played 10 songs (“Go Robot” seems to have been omitted).

From Daniel: Riff from “Out in L.A” was played as their opening-jam.
Many thanks to May Mendosa, Chifumi Soga and Daniel Tokheim Dalskau for the info from Osaka! Thanks to everyone who has shared videos on social media and last but not least, thanks also to the other witch for all of the links!
Location: Private “Coachella East” themed event hosted by Sukey and Mike Novogratz in Amagansett, East Hampton, USA
There was a livestream on the official Chili Peppers’ page on Instagram, but it was coming and going (it swapped to David Mushegain’s own account at times too). Some songs are missing as a result on the videos taken from the stream.
Around The World
The Zephyr Song
Snow ((Hey Oh))
Don’t Forget Me
*Soul to Squeeze
By The Way
*Give It Away
Note*: These songs were definitely on the livestream so the set must have changed from the list. The other songs may have been played but they were not on the livestream.

Many thanks to David Mushegain for battling with the livestream- so appreciated!
I’m not sure exactly what it is but RHCP are playing/doing something in East Hampton tonight. I’d heard on the grapevine that they were going to be there but the details were very vague, but Flea has now posted from there. AK flew out to New York a day or so ago, Josh is in NY too as he’s visited a record shop and been photographed there and it sounds rather like Chad on those drums…
Finally some details about Josh’s solo work! It’s going by the name Pluralone and will be released on August 16th, 2019.
Pluraloneis a new project from multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Josh Klinghoffer. While best known as the current guitarist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Klinghoffer also fronts the group Dot Hacker, and has played with a long list of notable artists over the years. Pluralone’s debut single release features two covers, both in languages foreign to Klinghoffer. “Io Sono Quel Che Sono” was originally popularized by Italian singer Mina. “Menina Mulher Da Pele Preta” was written and performed by Brazilian popular musician Jorge Ben. Klinghoffer performs all instrumentals and vocals for both tracks. The collage artwork was created by Dot Hacker drummer, Eric Gardner.
