Red Hot Chili Peppers sup. by Femi Kuti and the Postive Force
Festhalle Frankfurt, October 21, 2011
It has become a personal ritual every year in late October: picking a major concert to celebrate my birthday. This time I did not have to travel far away. Instead, the Red Hot Chili Peppers were to perform at the Festhalle Frankfurt which is lcoated just 30min away from my home!
It was a RHCP first time for me. And WOW – how cool was this: I had never seen a band that would introduce the support act personally (Flea) and join it for their last song (Flea and
John Frusciante Josh Klinghoffer)!
Femi Kuti and his band “The Positive Force” brought the lively spirits of Nigeria to the venue, in total 13 musicians and dancers with lots of power and fun to celebrate.
The performance of the Peppers played in the top league of Funk’n Roll. I especially enjoyed Chad Smith playing the drums. What a man! Not to forget the awesome show with movable video screens that I have not encountered like this before. Thus the 13.500 fans and I experienced a band in best playing mood presenting an awesome setlist.
