It was more of the most high anticipated gigs of the year – it sold out within minutes and tickets were being sold for up to twice the original selling price. Friday seen the Red Hot Chili Peppers roll into town to play at the O2, Dublin.
It has been a good few years since I last seen the Chili Peppers live. They seemed to of had a love affair with Ireland for a few years making appearances at Slane, Lansdowne Road (now known as the Aviva) and also a huge concert at the Phoenix Park.
Despite approaching their 50th birthdays, the surviving founders of California’s premier rock outfit still know how to bring the house down. Support on the night came from Fool’s Gold from Los Angeles but unfortunately due to the match traffic on the way into town – I missed the majority of them. From reports I was told that they were really good and it is a pity I missed the chance to see them.
