Red Hot Chili Peppers Play Their First Australian Show In Brisbane

Red Hot Chili Peppers kicked off the first of their Australian shows on the current 2022-2023 Global Tour with a completely different setlist to the first New Zealand show and a whole lot of focus on the two new albums.

In 2022, Red Hot Chili Peppers released an abundance of new music, two double albums worth of songs with ‘Unlimited Love’ and ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’. Eight of the 17 songs were from the new albums.

Of the catalogue, 1991’s ‘Blood Sugar Sex Majik’ had two tracks, 1999’s ‘Californication’ had five. The title track to ‘By The Way’, ‘Stadium Arcadium’s ‘Dani California’ and a Funkadelic cover filled out the setlist.

You never know what songs you’ll get at a Chili Peppers gig but the formula has been consistent. If you are heading to the remaining shows, familiarise yourself with the two recent albums.
