June 25th: the forecast is Chili
By order of the Hot Press Department of Corrections, we'd like to confirm that the Red Hot Chili Peppers play Dublin's Lansdowne Road on Tuesday, June 25th. Oh yes: and it will rock
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 20 Jun 2002
Despite reports to the contrary in our own marvellous but alas imperfect magazine, Red Hot Chili Peppers are in fact playing Dublin's Lansdowne Road, next Tuesday, June 25th.
Missed out on a ticket did you? Fear not, because 2,000 more have just been put on sale from the usual outlets nationwide. Needless to say, you'll want to move fast 'cause demand is extremely high.
As reported yesterday on hotpress.com, The Walls have joined New Order on the not-to-be-missed bill.
In the meantime, you can read a no holds barred interview with the Californicators in the 25th birthday issue of Hot Press, on newsstands today.

Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith had harsh words for both U2 and Black Eyed Peas as the American funk rockers arrived in last weekend for their Oxegen and T In The Park festival headliners.
2006-07-10 - News
From the funky opening strains of the first song, ‘Can’t Stop’, to the slowed down quasi-punk jam at the end of their final song, mega hit ‘Give It Away’, the Red Hot Chili Peppers were clearly amped up and prepared to give their all.
2006-06-09 - REVIEW
The record, a double album, doesn’t always live up to the sum of the parts. Like the Stones, U2 and REM, the Chilis can often seem like victims of their own longevity and familiarity. The best songs on this collection are inevitably the ones where they venture out of their own comfort zone.
2006-05-24 - REVIEW
They’re back! And they’re still harping on about California! Early fans will be disappointed to learn that in telling the story of Ms California, “a runner, rebel and a stunner”, they’re continuing down the middle of the road that they seem to like so much, leaving their days of edgy funk rock well behind. So much so that poor guitarist John Frusciante is left doing a cover version of ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ in the background while the rest of the band plod along behind Anthony Kiedis’s isolated enthusiasm. A new low for them? Quite possibly.
