Red Hot Chili Peppers Rooftop Concert at 6:30 in Venice!

I was not going to post this until after it happened .. but since the band is now putting word out … the rumor is true! After 4 years on hiatus, The Red Hot Chili Peppers will be playing a sunset show on the rooftop at 19th and Ocean Front Walk. Enjoy!


Having been on that rooftop many times, I can tell you the best place to watch is from High at the Erwin hotel, the paddle tennis courts or the sand past muscle beach by the bike path. Standing near the house will give you no view … seriously .. just head to the beach or HIGH!
