Red Hot Chili Peppers steer 'The Getaway' into the Amway Center this week


  • Steve Keros
With their discernibly amped-up funk and intrusively percussive
bass play, the California-bred Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Red Hot
Chili Peppers set course for the Amway this week and are strapped
with a game plan that, if patterns hold, is sure to involve some deliciously inappropriate innuendos.

Four years into their third decade of existence, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have decided to follow their 2016 summer album, The Getaway, with a worldwide tour that features special guests Baby Metal and Jack Irons.For their 11th record release, the six-time Grammy recipients worked with producer and methodical beat-birther Brian Joseph Burton, better known as Danger Mouse.

His addition undeniably altered the backdrop of the RHCP sound, but left intact what drew their large and always growing following in the first place. If you’ve never seen Flea, Anthony Kiedis and company live before, believe us when we say the funk now sits at 11.

with Baby Metal, Jack Irons | 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 26 | Amway Center, 400 W. Church St. | 800-745-3000 | | $49-$99
