88TICKETS WHERE REALLY HELPFUL WHEN TICKETS DID NOT ARRIVE! CHILLI PEPPERS WHERE OUT OF THIS WORLD, WITH A GREAT SUPPORT OF THE WOMBATS! THE CHILLIS WHERE LIKE BEING IN YOUR OWN FRONT ROOM LISTENING TO THE ALBUM BUT WITH 80000 PEOPLE SHARING THE EXPIERENCE. FLEA WAS RATHER SHOT AWAY BUT VERY FUNNY. THE MUSIC WAS JUST AWESOME. THE WORST THING WAS NOT ENOUGH LOOS 26 MINUTES TO QUEUE FOR A LOO!!!! THE OTHER BAD THING WAS THE MUDDY FIELD AND THE CAR WAS SINKING AND THE RAIN WAS COMING DOWN!!... (read more)

I went to see the Rolling stones a few weeks before and they were amazing, 80 pounds and well worth the money!!! I think the RHCP have let their fame get to their heads and are not putting on a good enough show AT ALL. The RHCP have probably been my favourite band for a long time (I am only 16) but this performance really made me think, all of your fans have payed so much money to come and see you, many people alongside me came all the way up from London, and you can only pull this off and...

Amazing! I took my 12 year old son with me. He loves the Chili Peppers, but my wife was a bit worried about the language, but that was not an issue at all. Their current songs had great solos, and the band made a great atmosphere. I would recommend this show to anyone. (read more)

Red Hot Chilli Peppers are amazing together right now. Saw the October 2nd performance at the Garden, and had to see them again on the 20th, so dug deep and bought pretty incredible seats to a more devoted fan-based performance, where we all sang along. The wave was happening up balcony way, and it happened on one of the worst nights weather and grid lock wise in Beantown. We appreciated the band's apology also for arriving late. We all shared a wild ride. 4 hours just from R.I.
I totally... (read more)

The last time I saw the RHCP's was in 1988 when they were still known for their blistering punk/funk fusion. They've come a long ways since those days, but unfortunately I didn't get the feeling that they are comfortable being a "supergroup". And I say that because all the "big" bands would never roll into town and do a show that was less than 2 hours with a lot of dead air in between songs. The show should have been at LEAST 2 1/2 hrs, preferably 3 hours.
They didn't do any of their... (read more)

September 1st, 2006. What a fantastic show! Apparently, they had played the same venue the night before. I had heard that previous night was amazing, but the following night blew the previous out of the water. All 4 guys came to play, and it seemed like each was trying to out do the other. Maybe it was because Jack Irons was there to watch...he was one of their first drummers. Flea was off the hook! He played his heart out and rocked the place. The coolest thing was that they jammed almost... (read more)

Was crushed at the front of the pit for this summer concert event, headlined by the Chili Peppers. They came, they played, they left. Band was tight but showed no stage presence or attempt to entertain. Flea and Anthony never even talked to each other; while Flea and the lead guitarist seemed much more at home in a encore-ending free jam. Flea is the best bass guitarist (cept sir Paul) that I have ever seen. These boys need to remember where their success came from; sneering at the crowd... (read more)

Although their talent is there in every song, and I enjoyed the majority of the concert, the opening band really took a lot of the enjoyment out of the experience. I think that Chili should think about this selection. I guess that my expectations were so high for them to justify the ticket price after the opening act, that it really was hard to come away being really excited. (read more)

I have seen he Red Hot Chilli Peppers at Hyde Park, so I knew they would be good. The gig ended way too soon though! Anthony seemed as if he didn't really want to be there, but he performed as fantastic as ever. I didn't manage to buy a programme - were there any?!
I heard rumours that this is their last tour! I sincerely hope not! We ladies like the eye candy! (read more)

Well......the support band. I have never seen such rubbish being called music! Did the Chili's really agree to this as their support??
As for the Chili's - they were there, but I would have thought maybe they didn't want to be. They got on stage, played their music (very well of course), but that was it. No interaction with the crowd at all (or with each orther) - I was left thinking 'is that it?', were they only interested in the price they could get for the tickets? Not interested in... (read more)

I went and see the Chili Peppers for the first time and I was totally speechless when I left Earls Court, it was totally amazing. I was seated right at the back but even that did not matter once they were on stage I loved every minute. They played a mixture of old and new. They had the crowd screaming for the minute they started to the second they stopped. SIMPLY THE BEST!!! (read more)

I've been a follower of the Red Hot Chili Peppers for years now and couldn't wait until the concert. I got there extra early and got right to the front on the barrier. I was starting to think it was a bad idea to go so early because after James Brown's set I was aching and tired but when the Chili's came on the whole place errupted and I forgot all the pain and was dancing and singing through the whole set. I payed for it the next day though. They played a vast erray of songs but mostly... (read more)

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Amazing set, exactly what I was hoping for as I've never seen them before. They played a great mix, though mostly their newer stuff. Also a few covers and 'Give It Away' as the encore - superb. Brilliant visuals and deafening sound, I'll be humming their songs for months! (read more)

The Red Hot Chili Peppers were absolutely amazing. Much better than I thought they would be - this is coming from someone who was only a couple of rows away from the stage, but still...the atmosphere was incredible - they played their music exceptionally well and everything was set up amazingly well. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would go again in the Golden Circle to see them if I could. (read more)

I was really looking forward to this having not seen the Chilis live for far too long.
I shelled out for a "gold" ticket and was glad I did.
I was about 10 rows back from the stage and had a great view. The sound was excellent quality and the visuals were very impressive. I'm not a Chilis snob and I'm happy to admit I like their new stuff as much as the old stuff and "By the Way" is the soundtrack to some very happy memories, so I was delighted to hear so much of it.
It was good... (read more)

If I wanted to watch an over the hill soul classic I would have gone to a James Brown concert not a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. We are huge fans of the Peppers and were bitterly disapointed by the show they put on. When a concert is set to start at 5:30 you don't expect to still be waiting for the main act at 8:30. We had golden circle tickets so could hear, but were still disapointed by the average show the Peppers put on. (read more)

I don't doubt that Red Hot Chili Peppers were amazing but, as I'm sure everyone else agrees, I couldn't hear them. There was no atmosphere. I bet Cardiff was excellent, the venue is far better. If I knew who to complain to I would ask for a refund. An apology from the band would be nice. (read more)

Red Hot Chili Peppers - I thought that Chicks on Speed were rubbish, James Brown was good, but possibly went too far with the robot!!
The Red Hot Chilli Peppers were fantastic, drinks service appalling, toilets, ok good value for money, I think, you got a lot of music for your money. (read more)

What a HUGE disappointment. I've liked the Red Hot Chili Peppers for over 10 years and was looking forward to a gig designed for the fans. Well it seems this gig was designed purely for those (v. limited) few who were lucky enough to get Gold tickets. The other 60,000 of us had to suffer:
- A severely underpowered PA system
- A lack of drinks (who really wanted to queue 1 hour to pay £3 for pint of Carling????)
- Rubbish support (why no Pixies!?!?)
It seems to me that RHCP are a bunch of... (read more)

Support bands were the worst quality... Chicks on Speed - nice that Red Hot Chili Peppers introduced them, but females screeching over some industrial banging sound hardly constitutes good music. James Brown is way past it, and singing to a backing tape did not do his music justice. Very boring.
The bar facilities were dreadful. If you can't bring beer in, they should ensure that you can at least buy it easily. The voucher system is a cynical set up to get more cash out of people and beer... (read more)

The rain held off so I was confident that the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert would be amazing. Despite the worst support band (Chicks On Speed) that I can remember, James Brown lifted the crown and it was with great anticipation that the Chilli's came on stage with the best of their new album. This should have had us in a frenzy only we could barely hear it. Not sure whether it was a regulation issue or what, but the speakers just couldn't seem to handle the Chillis. Not sure if it was just... (read more)

Hi, I was at the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert on Saturday, it was amazing. Groove Armada were great. The Thrills were just as good, yet I was disapointed with the Pixies. The Chilis were unbelievable, no words to express. Had a great day in whole, the Irish lads are mad. Back in boring old Manchester now, and I'm still buzzing from the concert. (read more)

Pheonix Park, Dublin was a G8 venue to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I Missed hothouse flowers :-( Grove armada were quite good, but the thrills rocked. While the pixies have never floated my boat, they did get a good atmosphere in the crowd. THE RHCP ROCKED!!! Especially after the encore!!! Playlist was superb, but the I wish they played 'fortune faded'. Their new stuff was excellent, as was their cover version (not sure what the band was called -sorry). (read more)
