A Heartbreaking Red Hot Chili Peppers Show In Grand Rapids
It was a night of face melting rock mixed with heartbreaking moments as Anthony Kiedis of the RHCP came home to Grand Rapids.
Let's start with the heartbreaking parts of this show at Van Andel Arena. About 15 minutes in Flea tearfully addressed the crowd. He asked for a moment of silence. He told us on this day 29 years ago Red Hot Chili Pepper's founding guitarist Hillel Slovak died. You could hear a pin drop. Then the Peppers drive back into a rocking song.
Just before the end of the show the group's lead singer Anthony Kiedis who is from Lowell, MI spoke to the crowd in a very upbeat tone about dying. But not just anyone dying. He told us his father is very sick and passing away. Kiedis was so upbeat and thankful about his father's life. It was incredibly touching.
With all of that said, the mostly 54 year old members of the Peppers jumped around that stage like they were 17 year old skaters. They did so while playing a flawless, high energy show Sunday Night in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
