Back in 1992, the Red Hot Chili Peppers headlined the second iteration of Lollapalooza with Ministry, Ice Cube, Soundgarden, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Pearl Jam, and Lush. It’s pretty incredible that nearly all of those acts are still going today, but perhaps the most famous of the bunch still remains the Chili Peppers.
Over the weekend, the band reprised their headlining role at Lollapalooza 2012, twenty years removed from that initial performance. They’re also twenty years away from their monster hit “Under The Bridge,” which came out with the Chili Peppers’ 1992 album Blood Sugar Sex Magik.
To complete the circle (and keep the nostalgia train running on schedule), Anthony Kiedis and Co. performed the song during their Lolla 2012 set, and we’ve got video of the performance below. It’s interesting to note that new Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer was only thirteen when that song originally came out, perhaps playing along with it in his teenage bedroom. At this rate, these guys will be rocking shirtless until they’re in the nursing home. Also, this is one of the YouTube comments: “Will Ferrell is drumming? Is this for a movie?” Watch the performance below. [Pigeons and Planes]
