TALLINN - Bands are like buses. You wait for ages for one to come, and then a bunch all come at once. The Baltic Times talks about the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the latest in a line of bands and artists (including Manic Street Preachers and Lady Gaga) who have, or are due to play, in the Baltics during the summer.
As the Red Hot Chili Peppers prepare to play at Zalgiris Arena in Kaunas on July 28 and the Tallinn Song Festival Grounds on July 30, their history shows that they’ve been a band of survival, power and – with over 65 million albums sold – lots of love from across the world. It’s hard to believe that next year the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be celebrating their 30th anniversary. Whilst familiar to audiences across the world, there’s still freshness to their work that ensures they’re continually attracting new fans, whilst giving plenty for their dedicated fans to enjoy.
And their number of hits is voluminous. Amongst many, many others “Californication,” “Under The Bridge” (one of those songs that became a massive hit without many realizing that it was actually a bitter reflection on the nature of heroin addiction) and “Love Rollercoaster” (which famously first appeared on the soundtrack for “Beavis and Butthead Do America”) have all managed to become massive successes wherever in the world they’ve been released.
