Red Hot Chili Peppers Play A Totally Different Show To Brisbane In Sydney

The one thing Red Hot Chili Peppers fans can expect on the current Australian tour is the unexpected. The first show in Sydney (2 Feb) was a completely different show to Brisbane (29 Jan) which was a completely different show to Dunedin and Auckland on 26 Jan and 21 Jan.

Only seven of the 19 songs performed in Sydney crossed over with the Brisbane setlist and four of those were from the 2022 albums ‘Unlimited Love’ and ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’.

Red Hot Chili Peppers rarely go back before ‘Blood Sugar Sex Majik’ but did so in Sydney with the 1989 ‘Mother’s Milk’ track ‘Nobody Weird Like Me’. ‘Pea’, from ‘One Hot Minute’, was another surprise. Its rarely been performed since 2000.
