The band played a mix of hits from famous past albums (staples like “Californication” and “Can’t Stop”) with several new songs (“Aquatic Mouth Dance” and “Black Summer”) peppered throughout the hour-long set.
“We’re always trying to write new s**t,” bassist Flea, who performed shirtless, told the audience. “Whatever flows through.”
The Yaamava’ casino in Highland, owned by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, has long been working on a $760 million expansion of its property, the third and final phase of which includes the 3,000-seat theater space where the Chili Peppers performed this week. San Manuel tribal members, journalists and other invited guests attended Thursday’s concert to mark the venue’s grand opening. Future concerts open to the public will be held at the venue starting this spring.
The theater features six distinct seating areas, with bars and concession stands positioned in an attached concourse. There are also nine private suites furnished with private restrooms, plush seating, and dedicated drink service. The casino announced in March that Live Nation will be the exclusive booking partner for the venue.
Previously, the band humiliated Josh Klinghoffer after firing. Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently on a tour extensively in 2022. Based on Frusciante’s comments, there probably won’t be any material from I’m with You or The Getaway in the setlist. Red Hot Chili Peppers returned with ‘Unlimited Love’ which is their first album to feature the classic lineup of John Frusciante, Anthony Kiedis, Flea and Chad Smith since 2006.
