There was some confusion this morning as to the validity of this as the link on the original Twitter post went to an error page on the official website, the website also said nothing and had no tours listed under the relevant section and no other RHCP social media accounts mentioned it. Then Chad Smith tweeted the news which was taken for verification only for the original tweet to be removed. But now a venue has posted (superloopadl500.com.au) so obviously there was just a massive mix up with info getting out and the original tweet was too early or something. Good luck to everyone getting tickets 🙂
Thanks to my sisterwife, Hamish and Sarah for helping out with info.
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.
Last night, Chad Smith presented the 2018 Music Industry Trusts (MITs) Award with Q Prime’s Peter Mensch, to agent Emma Bank.

In case you are wondering where you have seen Emma before, she is in a video on RHCP’s Instagram page:
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 (October 6th), RHCP’s other two members (Chad and Josh were performing at a benefit gig- see post below), Anthony Kiedis and Flea attended UFC 229 at the T-Mobile Arena on October 6, 2018 in Las Vegas.

There are a couple of new photos of Anthony at a Lakers game (not sure the date is accurate as there isn’t a game listed on the schedule for that night and these came out overnight here and there was a game yesterday) on Two Eggs

An artwork featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ logo has made it through the to final round of the Art Prize 2018. “Mastermind America,” by Alexi Torres has the logo incorporated into his piece (see bottom left enlargement):
“This work from my ‘Flags’ series depicts an American Flag. Incorporated in it are objects and symbols such as animals, foods, logos, and a bit of everything that makes this nation so unique. My intention is to show the truth of how everything in a country is interdependent and has a strong relation with nature and with each other. For the whole to work well, all of the parts have to function in harmony; this requires acceptance, cooperation, sharing and joy. In accordance with these principles,
I make every item with the same level of importance and out of the same material. Each is in harmony with the others. Every thread of the basket weaving is essential to make the form of the individual object, and at the same time, to make the greater America. I start and finish each work on a waning moon according to the lunar patterns followed by my ancestors in my native Cuba, and recorded with my signature on the canvas.”
Last night, 29th September, the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed as part of the 2018 Silverlake Conservatory of Music Fundraiser honouring Mo Ostin.
RHCP performed a brief set:

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.
There is a revised date for the publication of Flea’s memoir, ‘Acid For The Children.’ It’s now due to be released on November 27th rather than later this month as originally announced.
