Red Hot Chili Peppers

Sunday, November 18th, 2012 No comments

A few days ago, I got to see one of my all-time favorite bands, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, at the Rose Garden. I’ve been looking forward to this concert for about 5 months. Blood Sugar Sex Magik was one of the first albums I ever bought.

I had a great time at this show even though I was in the beginning stages of a cold that is still with me. The cigarette and pot smoke were irritating my sore throat. The opening act was The Rebirth Brass Band out of New Orleans. They were good, but I was really eager for the main attraction.

The Chili Peppers were great! Yes, they’re getting up there in age. They don’t look as good when they take their shirts off as they did 20 years ago. The songs all sounded great. It was a good blend of old songs and new songs. There were 2 songs that I didn’t recognize and I think they were both from the new album. Lots of energy. Great jams and great sing-a-long moments. I will definitely see them again if I get a chance to.
