Red Hot Chili Peppers - By The Way

Good Evening, then it was Friday again, this week has really gone away and now I am really behind with the reporting. I shall try to catch up on it now and during the weekend. A few concerts have been done, a rehearsal and a magnificent double gig on the globe, of course, we start with the good stuff this evening, I can not just hold it inside.

On Tuesday and Wednesday we had nice visits of funk, pop rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers, during two nights at the Globe and almost sold out and only a few tickets left did These gentlemen stood up on stage to entertain the Swedes and showed where the red cabinet with the chili would be.

The show is good, very good, the band feels incredibly tight, rested, well-trained and Anthony Kiedis is singing better than ever and with total presence, Flea strutting at its worst on his funkbass and bounces around on stage like never before and the new acquisition, guitarist Josh Klinghoffer doing well but did not take as much surface as Flea, yes its enough with one ego on stage, drummer Chad Smith beats the movable groove quite incredible.

At one point becomes Flea furious when his "Inear" failures, a technician rushes forward on stage and tries to help him, but Flea just blows off his hand and help and run with "I can do this myself, idea" which ends up with him just spitting and swearing as he tries to pull loose the cable, its almost like a dog with mustard in the butt.

The show is also cruelly beautiful in its simplicity, where the focus is on the moving video screens.

Here some pictures from the gig.

Today's tune will become the title track and the end song form the first live chapter "By The Way" from the album 'By The Way,'
