Undisputed arena rock gods of the modern era, The Red Hot Chili Peppers have defied the odds to become one of the longest running and most consistent bands today. Transcending their checkered past as Southern Californian stoners tooling around with white boy funk, their signature sound is now a mainstay in alternative rock, repeatedly aped and repurposed by lesser talents. Despite the glut of imitators, no one blends fat bass lines, soaring guitars, and machine gun vocals quite like the Red Chili Peppers, and in all likelihood, it’s going to stay that way.

Revitalized Energy

Touring now with their eighth lead guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer, their vitality is ensured by the endless energy exhibited by frontman Anthony Kiedis and his Energizer bunny bassist foil, Flea. Backed up by the reliable rhythms of Chad Smith, they play with the same glee, the same triumphant force, as their previous incarnations, making a solid case for the possibilities of musical immortality. Armed with an arsenal of certified anthems, their live shows inspire more sing alongs and freak outs than the combined powers of their peers, electrifying the faithful and raking in new converts with every lick.
