Anthony Kiedis At ‘The Red Hot Benefit Comedy & Quinceanera’

Last night (April 29th 2016) saw the Red Hot Benefit Comedy, Music & Quinceanera take place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Beneficiaries from the event included Cancer for College and The Silverlake Conservatory of Music.

The evening centered around the drumming talents of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ own Chad Smith and actor Will Ferrell returning to the theme of their drum-off on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ back in 2014 for a re-match. There was also a brief set by Anthony Kiedis and the rest of the Red Hot Chili Peppers:


Set List:

Can’t Stop




By The Way

Encore: Higher Ground

UPDATE: This video shows the whole show; some from back stage and there are clips of the person who took it and side views too but it gives those of us who weren’t there a better idea of what happened!

You can see more about the actual drum-off part here if you are interested: The Drum-Off Between Chad Smith & Will Ferrell @ the Red Hot Benefit Comedy, Music & Quinceanera, April 29th 2016


Please note: Videos and photos are only really starting to come out now. I will update if there’s anything else :)


Many thanks to Angra who was my LA reporter once again! And Shalhevet for extra info

Anthony Kiedis Performing at Jazz Fest, New Orleans


Anthony Kiedis with The Red Hot Chili Peppers played the headlining set at Jazzfest, New Orleans yesterday (24th April, 2016).

Anthony was wearing a really colourful top (new?) with his black trousers that are cut off at one leg and what looked like a black elbow support.


The end of the Snow video is so sweet; he goes to embrace his son, Everly Bear, who is standing on the side of the stage holding a very cool white crocodile toy.
