Red Hot Chili Peppers Are Streaming Their Show From The Pyramids Of Giza
On March 15, stadium rock legends Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform in Egypt for the very first time. But they’re not just playing a faceless enormodome or boring old field, they’re playing the actual Pyramids Of Giza, and they’re streaming it live on YouTube so we can all watch the mummies rise from the earth and dance to Californication.
“Before each new place my body tingled with excitement, a yearning for a new mystery to unfold, a fascination with a new culture, the possibility of new friends, tasting new food, smelling new tastes, absorbing new rhythms,” said Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist Flea in a statement on the band’s website.
“Learning. Learning. Learning. It is happening again right now, my heart is abuzz with joy at the prospect of performing in Egypt. I’m so grateful and humbled for the impending experience.”
The set will be streamed live on March 15 at 7pm GMT/2pm EST/11am PST. Set a reminder on the video below.
Other artists to have played the Pyramids Of Giza include Scorpions, Grateful Dead, Shakira, Sting and Frank Sinatra.
Chad Smith says the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album – their first to feature John Frusciante since 2006 – is “almost done”.
