Watch The Chili Peppers Play With John Frusciante For The First Time Since 2007!

February 9, 2020

It’s officially on! Red Hot Chili Peppers played their first show in more than 12 years with returning guitarist John Frusciante on Saturday (Feb.8) in Los Angeles at a memorial for Andrew Burkle, an aspiring film producer.

The event was organized by the Tony Hawk Foundation and also included a performance by Jane’s Addiction!

Tony Hawk, President of the Tony Hawk Foundation, posted some clips on his Instragram page (notice Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith is absent; in his place was Jane’s Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins).


Hawk wrote on Instagram: ” Today we celebrated the life of Andrew Burkle. He was a beloved son, friend and brother to the lucky ones that surrounded him. Because of him, @tonyhawkfoundation had landmark fundraising events in Beverly Hills for 10 years in a row and I am forever grateful for his support in our mission.”

Frusciante rejoined The Peppers in December ’19 after the dismissal of Josh Klinghoffer, who had been in the band for 10 years.

Does Frusicante’s return to The Peppers breathe new life into the band for you?
