Red Hot Chili Peppers Play First Show For 2023 In New Zealand

in News

Red Hot Chili Peppers have kicked off their first show of 2023 for Auckland, New Zealand.

‘Blood Sugar Sex Majik’ was the fifth Red Hot Chili Peppers album and is the starting point of the curation of the 2023 setlist for Auckland. That, and 1999’s ‘Californication’ were the band’s two biggest sellers, hitting the 7 million mark each in the USA. The one in between those two, ‘One Hot Minute’ wasn’t represented in Auckland, but that’s not to say it won’t make an appearance at the next show in Dunedin. Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of those rare major bands who gives the audience a unique show every show.

2011’s ‘I’m With You’ and ‘2016’s ‘The Getaway’ also didn’t make the Auckland cut. This show really showcases the enormous creative run the Chili Peppers had on 2022 with two double albums, ‘Unlimited Love’ and ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’.
