Returning rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers put on a surprise performance in LA on the weekend, where they filmed the music video to their latest single ‘The Adventures of Raindance Maggie’.
The Californians turned up un-announced to play a free gig on top of a building along Venice beach in their native LA, drawing thousands of fans to the area and sending them wild. You can see a close-up video of the un-scheduled appearance below.
The Chilis put on the surprise to film a video for the latest single, which is the first to be taken from their hugely anticipated album ‘I’m With You’, which is due out later this month on the 26th.
If you’re a Chilis fan and you wish you could have been at the surprise gig, which saw the band play their new single, ‘Give it Away Now’ and Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love, fear not as the band have scheduled a UK tour for November later this year. Check below for dates and ticket prices.
