Recently, the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed a charity show for the San Diego Foundation at Belly Up Tavern in San Diego. It became their 2015 full band live debut and it looks like it won’t be their last. Flea recently posted on Instagram more new about future tour dates: ‘A concert, fine art auction, and dinner this Saturday to raise funds for the Silverlake conservatory of music. The Rhcp is gonna do an acoustic set too. It is always a beautiful nightl when we have these fundraisers and so many great kids get to give their talents wings. I am so grateful to john legend for playing and equally so to the great kamasi Washington. There are still tickets available I know we are asking a lot of money for them but it’s for the kids not for us. We are a non profit school we are doing everything we can to help we care so much. There will be great art there by Thomas Houseago, Richard prince, Damien Hirst, jeff koons, urs fischer, gus van sant and Dana Louise Kirkpatrick. And more art that I forget about because I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. A magic night is in store.’
The Red Hot Chili Peppers, as Josh Klinghoffer and Anthony Kiedis, played an acoustic set earlier this year. May 16th, the duo performed at UCLA Spring Sing, where Kiedis accepted the annual “George and Ira Gershwin Award for Lifetime Musical Achievement” from the UCLA Student Alumni Association, where Anthony Kiedis attended for a year after high school. The two performed Chili Peppers classics “By the Way” and “Otherside”, along with a Sly and the Family Stone cover, “If You Want Me to Stay”, a song covered on their sophomore album Freaky Styley with original guitarist Hillel Slovak.
Tickets for the show are $2,500 each. A table of 10 is $25,000. If interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Flea is also working on establishing another children’s conservatory of music like the Silverlake location, but in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles. Flea is a vocal supporter of the arts for youth and is a proud father himself. His daughter Clara Balzary is known photographer and has accompanied the band on tour in recent years.
