Red Hot Chilli Pipers Tickets
With the thought of fusing funk and punk rock together, combined with onstage exhilarating performances the Red Hot Chili peppers emerged as a rock band from Los Angeles in 1983. They have sold over eighty million records worldwide. Currently consisting of Anthony Kiedis on vocals, Michael Balzary on bass, Chad Smith on drums and Josh Klinghoffer as the guitarist, ‘The RHCP’ have roused a number of imitators in their wake. Yet the seven times Grammy Award winning band has not lost on its popularity even a little bit. They got inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. Red Hot Chili Pepper tickets still sell out like cupcakes, even with the numerous alterations to their line-up.
The band took shape, when three school friends at the Fairfax High School in California got together. The three friends were Kiedis, Blazary and Hillel Slovak, the founding members of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Kiedis used to act and focus on poetry during his high-school years. On the insistence of Slovak and Balzary, who played the guitar and trumpet respectively, he started putting his poetry to music. Jack Irons, another friend, was selected as the drummer and they named themselves ‘Tony Flow and the Majestic Masters of Mayhem’.
Their first gig was in front of an audience of about thirty people. It was supposed to be a one-time performance, however the response they got was very motivating. The audience enjoyed the lively performance very much and the band was asked to come back the following week. With the unexpected success that they got, they decided to play at local clubs and venues, changing their name to ‘The Red Hot Chili Peppers’.
Slovak and Irons had joined the band on a temporary basis and left due to commitments with their own band ‘What is This’. After a few auditions the band got its replacements and released its debut album in August 1984, named on the band itself ‘The Red Hot Chili Peppers’. The absence of two main members showed and although the album didn’t make a huge impact, they started to build a niche fan following.
For their second album they had a pleasant surprise when Slovak and Irons returned to the band. The original four got together to release the album ‘Freaky Styley’, which although better than the first, was not exactly what the band had in mind. It lacked the fire of their onstage performances. This was rectified in the third album they released, titled ‘The Uplift Mofo Party Plan’. It was significantly more successful than their previous endeavors and went on to rank at number 148 on the Billboard top 200.
as things were beginning to brighten up for the band, Slovak died as a result of drug overdose. Irons quit the band for the second time, as he did not want to be a part of a band anymore. Things looked bleak with Irons and Slovak gone and Keidis with a drug addiction problem of his own. Yet Kiedis and Blazary, decided not to give up on the band and continue with what ‘Slovak helped build’.
Chad Smith, the current guitarist joined the band in 1988 through open auditions. Keidi said about Smith that he "left the band in a state of frenzied laughter that we couldn't shake out of for a half an hour". The band had finally found their drummer.
The third album Mothers Milk, featuring a new lineup was quite successful due to MTV’s publicity of their videos. It featured a tribute song, Knock Me Down, to their deceased friend Slovak. Their next album was an enormous hit titled ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik’ and their first with the Warner Bros. label. They released several more songs, yet nothing as big as their album ‘BSSM’. In 1999 they released ‘Californication’ another gigantic hit that established RHCP as one of the top alternative rock bands.
In 2006, the band came up with their album Stadium Arcadium, which went on to bag 5 Grammy Awards a year later. Josh Klinghoffer replaced Frusciante in 2009 and the band released their first album, with him as the guitarist in 2011 titled ‘Im with you’.
Red Hot Chili Pepper tickets guarantee upbeat rock music, with an explosive show. They have seen lows and faced controversies, yet they have come back larger, more enthusiastic and with better music than ever before. Do not miss the chance to catch them live.
