Red Hot night with the Chili Peppers
On Sunday night I got a phone message left by my oldest friend inviting me to the red Hot Chili Peppers concert Tuesday night at the Air Canada centre in TO.
It took me three minutes to think about . I had time to ask advice... But no time to wait for answers. Of course I was going! I met my friend , her husbands friend and his teenager at Gate 1 in the Air Canada centre. Thanks to my friends husband being away on business I got his ticket, poor guy...
I showed 'S' how to take a pic with her cell phone, she took a pic of the stage and emailed it to her hubby across the sea.
I took a few pictures too.
There was an enthusiastic Peppers fan next to me who had been drinkin a lot.... He was very funny and I think I will save that story for another time.
Oh yeah, The Red Hot Chili peppers were great! That band knows how to play! Understatement.
I enjoyed it so much I was dancing half the show. They did a smashing encore on top of a stadium rockin' show.
As you can see we were far from the stage.
Mars Volta, the opening band, on the other hand, was a pile of loud noise on top of loud noise... I could not tell if the singer was male or female, French or English. The guitarist played in both bands. How odd that he plays in a band like Mars Volta that drowns out every sound they make with every other sound they make. Yet he shines with The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
But what do I know about music...
I just know I had a great time!
