Location: Derwent Entertainment Centre, Hobart, Tasmania.
Notes: There were issues with power. Flea played Pea when the power first started to fail -it had left 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.)
Update: There’s a Metro article with more info saying that Anthony Kiedis jumped over the amps to get the message through to fans that the power was down.
Anthony Kiedis, together with the rest of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, signed a Gibson Les Paul Electric guitar at the Grammys rehearsals. The guitar 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.
More tickets have been released for most of RHCP’s upcoming shows in Austalia and New Zealand and are on sale today. The special guests for the concerts, except Hobart, have also been announced and are none other than the legendary George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic!
Loads of Anthony Kiedis related news coming out today!
Firstly, there’s an article on Blabbermouth talking about how the Woolsey/Malibu fires halted work on the new RHCP album.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have also announced new tour dates. Anthony Kiedis and the boys will be playing Egypt, Live at the Pyramids, on the 15th March with tickets going on sale on Friday (18th) and also an Instagram a post came out saying RHCP will play the 20th Anniversary Summer Sonic Festival in Japan
There are hundreds of snippet videos of varying quality on social media from the concert- too many to post! Look for #malibulovesesh as well as the usual RHCP ones. The official RHCP page on Instagram currently has really close up videos that were streamed live on their profile photo.
Getty Images France have a lot of photos on their site- I believe GettyImages.com does too but I can’t view them as we’re banned in Europe due to the EU data laws and search options don’t work through VPN.
