UFC Star Rips Red Hot Chili Peppers Performance


UFC President Dana White often shares his thoughts on different matters and this time about Red Hot Chili Peppers. It is no secret that he has been longtime friends with Anthony Kiedis, the lead singer of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Kiedis has attended countless UFC shows, and typically is in the building for the first fight. The Peppers even have played a surprise show at the UFC’s employee holiday party in the past.

Dana White criticizes Red Hot Chili Peppers

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently on the North American leg of a world tour in support of their latest album, “Unlimited Love,” which came out in April and debuted at No. 1 in the U.S. – making it the band’s first No. 1 album in 16 years.

It was noted that this past week, they played at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders. It is worth mentioning that Dana White was in attendance.

“I was a little disappointed, to be honest with you,” White said. “They played a lot of the new stuff, not a lot of old stuff. (There were) a lot of sound problems. I do think (Allegiant Stadium) was too big, too. It felt too big for that one. I saw Billy Joel there, and Billy Joel’s setup was bigger. Obviously, the Peppers had way more people there than Billy Joel did. That place was packed to the rafters. It was insane. But I’ve seen the Peppers like 20 times, so I’ve seen some pretty badass shows. I felt like for selling 46,000 seats, they should’ve really ripped that f*cking place apart on Saturday night, and I don’t feel like they did.”
