Red Hot Chili Peppers Set to Perform For Dalai Lama
When you've been in a band like Red Hot Chili Peppers for about three decades, there's a chance you ran out of groundbreaking things to do. But that time hasn't come yet, as the Californian four-piece was officially confirmed to perform in front of Dalai Lama at his annual environmental summit. Set to take place on May 11 at 3:30 p.m., the show will be held at Maitripa College in Portland, Oregon, the first and only Tibetan Buddhist college in the Pacific Northwest. "The musical element of this event is intended to be a display of joyful celebration and an inspiration to future generations to care for our planet," says the official announcement. "The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been great supporters of the Tibetan cause, of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and of the need to work to protect and preserve our environment." The officials have also stressed out that no separate tickets for the RHCP show will be available, meaning you will have to participate throughout the entire summit if you want to attend the concert. The group didn't post any official comments so far, but is expected any time soon. The remainder of this year's confirmed RHCP shows includes a handful of dates consisting of some of today's most prominent festivals such as Coachella, Outside Lands and Metallica's very own Orion Music. The group's latest release, "I'm With You," came out in August 2011 as their tenth record. With 229,000 copies sold in the first week, it debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart.
