The Red Hot Chili Peppers are well into their Australian tour, and the rave reviews are flying in! With the tour still to head to Brisbane, Melbourne, Geelong, Adelaide, and Perth, we’ve put together a highlights reel of what people had to say following their Sydney show...
“The musicianship of the Chili Peppers tops most rock bands, but Flea in particular was a marvel. From classical lines in one jam with Klinghoffer, to the hand-blurring, head-banging attack on Stevie Wonder's Higher Ground, the man born Michael Balzary in Melbourne is one Australian we should be proud to claim.” - Financial Review
"It is clear these legendary musicians won't stop playing to packed-out stadiums anytime soon." - The Music
“RHCP could easily play their full three-decade discography and hold an audience in the palm of their hands.” - The AU Review
“The Red Hot Chili Peppers proved they still have plenty of life in them and are attracting younger fans to their shows alongside their hardcore supporters who have been with them since day one.” - Hysteria
“When the Red Hot Chili Peppers are at their best – and even now, a barely believable 36 years after they formed, they frequently get there – they are scintillating.” - SMH
“You want energy from some survivors of the rigours of the long rock game? Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith and their guitarist since 2007 Josh Klinghoffer, bounce and jump and pogo and sweat and lost their proverbial in the first three songs at a rate which would exhaust their younger peers over a whole set.” - Daily Telegraph
