Chili Peppers delight Moscow crowd

25th Jul 2012

The Red Hot Chili Peppers thrilled nearly 60,000 fans in Russia on Sunday night as the band took their latest tour to the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow.

The Grammy-winning artists quickly endeared themselves to the local crowd by welcoming the audience in Russian and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer also wore a T-shirt of the Russian ice hockey club CSKA on stage.

The US band had been to Moscow once before but this was their first ever solo performance in the Russian capital as they continue to promote the I'm With You album and prepare to take the tour to various other locations in Eastern Europe.

The band, which formed in Los Angeles in the early 1980s and was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will now play the Olympisky Stadium in Kiev before going on to the Kaunas Arena in Lithuania.

And the famous four-piece of Anthony Kiedis, Michael 'Flea' Balzary, Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer will then move on to the Tallinn Song Festival Grounds in Estonia and Istanbul in Turkey.
