RHCP News Update


The mystery of those promotional photos featuring the album release date and the pictures of a robot has been ‘cleared’ up. Banksy protégé Mr. Brainwash. Mr. Brainwash — real name Thierry Guetta — told TMZ that RHCP hired him to use street art to promote their new album… However, Warner Brothers since said the band has nothing to do with these posters.

RHCP To Play Sonisphere 2012? In Talks with Organisers

Are RHCP going to play Sonisphere next year? We know from Blackie Dammett’s posts on Facebook that they are discussing playing festivals here and the organizer of Sonisphere has stated to NME that they are in fact in talks with the band about appearing at the festival:

‘We’re talking to Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters for 2012’ says Sonisphere organiser

Stuart Galbraith also names dates for next year’s Knebworth event

Sonisphere organiser Stuart Galbraith has said that the festival are in talks with both Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as a host of other acts, for headlliners of next year’s event.

Speaking at the official festival press conference, he also confirmed that the festival would be running over the weekend of July 6-8 in 2012 and that tickets for next year’s event would be going on sale on Wednesday (July 13), with prices capped at this year’s rates for a limited number of tickets.

Asked if he would consider booking either Foo Fighters or Red Hot Chili Peppers for 2012, he said: “They’re both two that we’re talking to, amongst a whole list of others. I also think we could have Green Day and Blink-182 here, but none of those are confirmed.”


Thanks to Jason for the heads up on this!

The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie….

It’s getting closer and closer!

This has just been posted  on Facebook with details of how The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie will be streamed live so that people can listen to it!

red hot chili peppers the adventures of rain dance maggie first air play


Ok. RHCP. ‘The Adventures Of Raindance Maggie’. July 18. 7:30pm. BBCR1. The end

Listen on-line Here (I wsn’t sure if this would work outside the UK as sometimes the BBC blocks non-UK IP addresses but a couple of people have kindly checked and it does work- although it is worth double-checking to make sure it does work where you are.) Other radio stations are also posting about playing it on the 18th July so it might be worth checking where you are too 🙂





UPDATED (11th July)

It seems like this has now been changed; Zane Lowe has just tweeted the following:

I'm With You Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie Red Hot Chili Peppers


“I know re RHCP airplay confusion, it’s a bit of a drag. Hang in there. Details will arrive soon I hope.”

“RHCP Fans: Please note ‘The Adventures Of Raindance Maggie’ will NOT be played on the 13th of July. First radio play is now TBC. Please RT.”
TCS Note: Obviously we will keep an eye on this situation and update when any more details come in. (Thanks to Alex for the update)
Original Post:

As we reported last week, UK’s BBC Radio 1 presenter, Zane Lowe, was listening to the new RHCP single and was trying to get permission to play it…. It didn’t happen last week but the radio station will be playing the song in TWO DAYS time! Here’s Zane Lowe’s tweet:


I'm with you Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie Red Hot Chili Peppers 13th July 2011





‘Ok so the new RHCP single ‘The Adventures Of Raindance Maggie’ will be played for the first time in the world at 7:30pm on July 13. #BBCR1′

 Listen on-line Here (I’m not sure if it will work for listeners outside the UK because sometimes the BBC have restrictions and only allow British listed IP addresses to access their online services; I have a British IP address so if somebody could please let me know if this works for non-UK people before the date, I’d appreciate it)

Many thanks to Beth for sourcing this while I was away for the weekend!

Being Offline

I’m so sorry about the situation over the last couple of weeks; the site was supposed to be getting a re-vamp with a whole new colour and layout change to update it. I was initially told the upgrade would be done in 48 hours but that wasn’t to be and it dragged on and on… The upgrade has now been cancelled and as you can see, the site has now been restored to how it was so that we can return to bringing you RHCP updates and news 🙂

Thank you for your patience over this and my apologies for any inconvenience caused.
