Red Hot Chili Peppers @ The Key Arena on 11/15/12
Red Hot Chili Peppers brought it to the stage Thursday night at The Key Arena… And the crowd LOVED IT.” Fans enjoyed a high energy performance and sounds that recalled the RHCP’s of the 90’s.The band mixed up their set with hits from their complete discography, which spans over three decades, including their latest release, I’m With You.
As expected, bassist Michael “Flea” Balzary, vocalist Anthony Kiedis, and Josh Klinghoffer (the sixth guitarist to join the band since their inception) provided boundless hyper-kinetic energy all over the stage, while Chad Smith held it all down with his powerful, in-the-pocket drumming.
Having not played any string of shows since 2007, their I’m With You tour, which began with promotional shows in late 2011, was supposed to officially begin in Jan ’12, but was delayed due to front-man, Kiedes’ required foot surgery. The tour picked up last March, and based on the singer’s high energy performance last night, it was apparent that Kiedes has not missed a step.

The tour will continue through February 2013, marking their biggest tour to date. All shows from the tour will be made available to purchase as downloads through LiveChiliPeppers.com (http://livechilipeppers.com/).

Word to the wise. Follow our pal Andrew Joslyn and the Passenger String Quartet's Instagram page @andrewjoslynmusic.
He's giving sneak previews of his symphonic work on network TV commercials and pop songs. Every student of violin and cello should be following his page. But so should you. You have heard Andrew and his writing on Grammy winning hits by Macklemore and Kesha.
...and his work with folks like Ethan Anderson to save the music industry locally and globally with the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs is something to watch.
Or don't follow him and life will be a little less colorful and inspiring, but sometimes you don't notice how good life can be without good art and good friends.
In that respect Art is dangerous because you will need more. Andrew has plenty in the vault... ... See MoreSee Less
