Red Hot Chili Peppers Perth Tour

Red Hot Chili Peppers in Perth – 19 song setlist, set times, and reviews.

The big names keep on rolling into Perth with the Red Hot Chili Peppers set to take the stage at HBF Park on March 5th.

It has now been 12 years since the Red Hot Chili Peppers last headlined around Australian, which saw over 100,000+ fans attend 9 sold out shows in 2007.

If the east coast shows are anything to go by Perth RHCP fans will be pleased with the show 12 years in the making, though perhaps left feeling a little disappointed at the same time – depending on what songs are on the Perth setlist..

Red Hot Chili Peppers Perth Setlist

The Red Hot Chili Pepper Australian tour has raised eyebrows with what has been described as an ‘interesting setlist’, with the majority of the show being dedicated to the new Chili Peppers as opposed to vintage Chili Peppers.

One thing that is interesting to note is that if Melbourne and Brisbane shows are anything to go by Perth could be inline for a fresh setlist.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Melbourne Review

What can Perth expect when RHCP take the stage?

Tone Deaf

While some fans could be heard criticising the choice of setlist songs as they left, the vast majority were left astounded that after 35 years together, the Red Hot Chili Peppers still sound as energetic, fresh, and powerful as ever.

The focus was more post-Californication and less on the funky, metal influences and psychedelic stuff they cut their teeth on.

Don’t be disappointed you might not hear every single song you came for – there’s not enough time to include everything. But they’ll give it a red-hot try.

If the Red Hot Chili Peppers are going to continue to surprise and mix things up after 36 years and 11 albums, we can’t deny them the right to pick and choose a set that will do both of those things. And they finished up the night with a killer version of ‘Give It Away”.
