If any of you in the UK were planning on seeing the Red Hot Chili Peppers next month when they play, you're in for a real treat, the godfather of soul, James Brown, is their special guest for most of the UK shows!
June 18th - City of Manchester Stadium
June 19th & 20th - London Hyde Park
June 23rd - Cardiff Millennium Stadium
June 25th - London Hyde Park
Sounds fun to say the least! Next time, they should try the Voice Of Rock, eh
WOW ,,THAT WOULD COOL,, ME AND HEATHER ARE GOING TO THE UK JUNE 14 --JUNE 30.THANKS FOR THE TIP DAVID......LARRY IN TEXAS
Thought some of you might enjoy these....Chad and his fellow Peppers interviewed by BBC Radio 1 (4 parts) in Ireland last week, plus a couple of snippets from the London Hyde Park performance the other day - Saturday, June 19th, 2004, which features Chad's drum solo and the band's introductory jam
Many thanks for those clips, most enjoyable. Although I'm surprised Chad didn't have some sort of Purple medley thrown into his drum solo!
Here's some shots from the recent London Hyde Park show featuring Chad and the close to 300,000 crowd
My daughter was at the Manchester show and apparently Flea was unimpressed with the crowd's reaction to the support band, and said so ...
I want to imagine standing close to the front row with this crowd, but with Glenn on stage. As long as our brother doesn't forget about us GHCPs.
Thanks for those David.
