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.
Location: Derwent Entertainment Centre, Hobart, Tasmania
Notes: There were issues with power. Flea played Pea when the power first started to fail leaving Josh Klinghoffer unable to play. Power was then lost completely with the band leaving the stage until the issue was sorted. (Thanks to Paul Leske for the info.)
The Red Hot Chili Peppers signed a Gibson Les Paul Electric guitar at the Grammys rehearsals and it is now being auctioned to raise funds for The Grammy Museum Foundation. You can bid here (current top bid is $1500)
Last night, RHCP played with Post Malone as his special guests. The performance started with Post Malone singing a solo track and then singing part of his song, Rockstar – inevitably, before he joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers in a chopped up version of Dark Necessities.

There’s a video I believe on the Grammy Awards website (but I can’t view it).
Getty Images has loads of photos on their website.
More tickets have been released for most dates on the tour and the special guests for the concerts, except Hobart, have been announced and are none other than the legendary George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic!
Flea has posted a couple of things on his Instagram story relating to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. One is a video of Josh Klinghoffer playing guitar in RHCP’s rehearsal space and the other is a list of songs… The assumption is that these are preparation for the forthcoming Australia and New Zealand tour.
Chad Smith has been interviewed for the Drum Channel about his life. The video interview also includes interviews with his mother and his brother. Some really fascinating info about his name, early life, etc.
