RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS TO PLAY SHOW FOR DALAI LAMA

4/18/2013

The Red Hot Chili Peppers will play a special show for the Dalai Lama next month in Oregon, according to Spinner. The Tibetan Buddhist leader will be the guest of honor on May 11th at the Dalai Lama Environmental Summit, with the event's site saying that the day's activities will include a "special musical performance" to inspire "future generations to care for our planet." The concert will take place at Portland's Veteran's Memorial Coliseum. Neither bassist Flea nor drummer Chad Smith has made mention of the show on either of their Twitter accounts just yet.

 

  • Tickets are available for the show but only as part of a ticket package for the Summit itself.
  • The Chili Peppers will play this weekend's second installment of the Coachella Festival in Indio, California on Sunday night (April 21st), after battling a fierce sandstorm during last Sunday's (April 14th) Coachella stint.
  • The band is also scheduled to co-headline the Orion Music + More festival with Metallica in Detroit in early June, and has just been confirmed as one of the headliners at the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco this August, alongside Paul McCartney, Phoenix and Nine Inch Nails.

  • Portland is home to the first and only Tibetan Buddhist college in the northwestern U.S., called Maitripa College.
