Thirty-three years and 11 albums on, Californian music veterans, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, are proving that they are, in their own words, ‘addicted to the shindig’. Their sound is like no other, supplying the world with catchy funk tunes that just keep getting better. Five years after their chart topping album, I’m With You (2011), the quartet have released The Getaway (2016). The recent single, ‘Dark Necessities’, features a piano/bass intro that breaks into a funky bass riff, on a par with past singles such as ‘Californication’ and ‘The Zephyr Song’—comparisons that are sure to keep fans listening. If there was any doubt that RHCP were losing their touch, this sell-out tour is proof that their fanbase is still thriving, with additional shows scheduled in both Madrid and Barcelona. Reviews of the recent gigs report long sets and a ton of hits from the last three decades—exactly what the punters are hoping for.
