Red Hot Chili Peppers to Perform at Bernie Sanders Fundraiser
Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline an all-ages show in Los Angeles to help raise funds for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Bernie Sanders has been garnering lots of support from the entertainment community since declaring his intent to run for president. All four members of Red Hot Chili Peppers publicly backed Bernie in Sept. 2015, signing a letter of endorsement posted on Sanders' website. Sanders prides himself on refusing to take campaign money from corporations or Super PACs, committing to raise funds in a grassroots manner.
Red Hot Chili Peppers will rock the Theatre at Ace Hotel on Feb. 5 during a Feel the Bern fundraiser. Tickets will go on sale the day of the show and will be available for those looking to drop a little or a lot of money. Tickets will become available at 10AM PST for $30 all the way to $2,700.
As for a new RHCP album, the band is still hard at work in the studio. On Jan. 22, drummer Chad Smith posted an update on Facebook sharing the band had completed recording an entire song in just four hours:
