Bottlerock Postponed

It’s no surprise that festivals where RCHP were due to play were under threat due to this wretched virus, and the first one to postpone is Bottlerock. It will now be held at the beginning of October. Other dates are affected too- just waiting for confirmation on which ones.

‘RHCP’ Live 2020: Beverly Hills Memorial Performance

Note: This was a total surprise yesterday and I posted as things came in. Doing a ‘proper’ format post now with updated information, but please refer to original post for video links as there’s no point adding them twice.


Date: Saturday 8th February, 2020

Location: Private residence; Green Acres Estate, Beverly Hills, California.

Reason: This was a memorial concert to Andrew Buckley who died suddenly at the beginning of January. His father, Ron Buckley, was honoured at the Silverlake Conservatory of Music Benefit in November last year.


The first live performance featuring the return of John Frusciante following Josh Klinghoffer’s enforced exit.

Chad Smith did not play with the band with drums being played by Jane’s Addiction drummer, Stephen Perkins, instead.

Thelonius Monster and others played the event. Jane’s Addiction also played and Frusciante joined them on stage for a few seconds.

Since Jane’s Addiction were there, ex-RHCP guitarist, Dave Navarro, was obviously present and he was photographed with members of RHCP.

Set List:

Give It Away by RHCP

I Wanna Be Your Dog cover (original by Iggy Pop and The Scrooges)

Not Great Men cover (original by the Gang of Four).


Thanks to Jason and Sister Witch for information and everyone else who sent me links.


RHCP (sort of) Live with John Frusciante

The Red Hot Chili Peppers with their old/new line up with John Frusciante on guitar, but minus Chad Smith on drums, have taken part in a celebration of the life of Andrew Burkle.

Ending Global Poverty

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have just posted a link and information on the Global Goal Live campaign by Global Citizen. The campaign aims to try to end world poverty by raising $350 billion each year for the world’s poorest countries.

RHCP are listed as one of artists to perform as part of this campaign’s culminating event which will take place over ten hours. Details as to where and when will be announced in early 2020, but it will take place on 26th September 2020 in one of five locations.

We are thrilled that so many artists have already said they’ll be involved in Global Goal Live, including:

A small amount of tickets might be available on general sale with the majority available to Global citizens who earn them:

How can I get tickets?

Global Citizens around the world can take action to earn their tickets to the events, as has been possible for all past Global Citizen events.

We will announce specific actions and draws for tickets closer to each event. In the meantime, we encourage you to take action in support of the campaign.
