Red Hot Chili Peppers live at the Rockplast Festival, Essen, Germany on August 17, 1985. According to the YouTube poster, this was the first show the Red Hot Chili Peppers ever played outside the USA. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but the group’s enthusiasm level is palpably high here and the band are obviously having a great time.
The audio/video quality on this is an A+ and the performance is bold, punchy andtight. I’ve seen the RHCP in concert a number of times over the years and they alwaysdeliver live. This typically energetic show is certainly no exception.
George Clinton, who produced Freaky Styley appears during “Hollywood” and for the encore of Hendrix’s “Fire,” the ballsy band return to the stage clad only in their socks.GIVE UP THE FUNK!
