The Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the hottest touring bands on the circuit, known for bringing the heat in live concert settings along with sold out shows. Anthony Kiedis on vocals, Flea on bass, Chad Smith on Drums and Josh Klinghoffer on guitar have a mutual common goal when it comes to entertaining their fans. Rocking the house. The band’s mainstay position comes from their mutual synergy on stage, their loyal fans and their commitment to deliver a dynamic physical and musical performance leaving fans wanting more.
Over the weekend, fans of the Red Hot Chili Peppers flew in to Wichita, Kansas to join local fans to see the Peppers live at the Intrust Bank Arena. Mother Nature prevailed with freezing weather conditions that caused the scheduled Sunday concert to be postponed. But only for one night.
On Monday evening, the arena filled with 10,000 loyal fans waiting in anticipation and the hope that the show would go on. The moment the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ hit the stage the crowd erupted in a wild frenzy of excitement. The Peppers kicked off the show ready to rock a sold-out crowd of fans at the Intrust Bank Arena.
The band performed hits including “Give It Away”, “Around the World,” “Otherside” and “By the Way.” From start to finish, the Peppers set the tone in motion delivering a dynamic musical set that continued just short of two hours. Anthony Kiedis acknowledged to the crowd that he was glad they got word about the reschedule for Monday night.
The band’s special guests included Orleans Avenue and Jack Irons as well as Trombone Shorty who took the crowd into a New Orleans jazz zone prior to the Peppers’ entrance. In addition to a myriad of hits, the Peppers also performed a few tracks from their new CD release, “Getaway.”
