Red Hot Chili Peppers Australia and New Zealand Tour – The Numbers by The Numbers

by Paul Cashmere on February 5, 2023

in News

Red Hot Chili Peppers have played six of their nine Australia and New Zealand shows with three to go. Now that they are two thirds through the AUNZ dates we can now see the pattern for how a setlist is put together.

For starters, every Red Hot Chili Peppers show is unique. There is a fresh setlist performed at each show so everyone in every audience is getting a show that was curated just for them.

Like all acts, Red Hot Chili Peppers are returning to the world stage with a lot of new music produced in the pandemic years. 2022 saw the release of two albums, the 17 track ‘Unlimited Love’ in April 2022 and 17 more tracks of ‘Return of the Dreamtime Canteen’ in October. ‘Unlimited Love’ has had five song featured across the six shows so far, and six tracks from ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ have been played. ‘Black Summer’ from ‘Unlimited Love’ and ‘The Drummer’ from ‘Return of the Dream Machine’ have been played at every show.

The title tracks from 1999’s ‘Californication’ and ‘2002’s ‘By The Way’ have also been played at every show so far, and the band’s ‘Intro Jam’ has an will continue to open every show.

The breakthrough Red Hot Chili Peppers album ‘Blood Sugar Sex Majik’ (and equal biggest seller in the USA with ‘Californication’ is underrepresented. ‘Give It Away’ is the most played song, five out of six show. ‘I Could have Lied’ was played on three shows. ‘Sir Psycho Baby’, ‘They’re Red Hot’ and ‘Under The Bridge’ have been played once so far each on the tour. There has been no ‘Breaking The Girl’ or ‘Suck My Kiss’ (so far).

‘Blood Sugar Sex Majik’ was the fifth Chili Peppers album. Only ‘Nobody Weird Like Me’ (from 1989’s ‘Mother’s Milk’) represents Chili Peppers 80s era.

If you are going to one of the three Chili Peppers shows still to come, just familiarise yourself with the new music.
