Red Hot Chili Peppers - Knebworth
Red Hot Chili Peppers played their first of only two UK dates to a crowd of 80,000 in Knebworth Park, Hertfordshire Saturday night. The band kicked with a new song, ‘Monarchy of Roses’, but threw in a good mix of recognisable classics like ‘Dani California’ & ‘Under the Bridge’ and despite the heavy rain, the crowd didn’t let this bother them as sang along to each and every song.
The band finished their set with ‘Factory of Faith’, a track from their latest album I’m With You although they didn’t leave the fans without providing an encore first, climaxing with 'Give it Away' and 'Suck my Kiss'.
Set list: Monarchy of Roses / Around the World / Dani California / Otherside / Throw Away Your Television / Can’t Stop / Pea / Soul to Squeeze / The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie / Charlie / Under the Bridge / Higher Ground / Californication / Factory of Faith / By The Way / Chad & Mauro & Josh Jam / Sir Psycho Sexy / Suck My Kiss / Give it Away / Final Jam
