Notes about the concert:

Once again Flea introduced the opening act Femi Kuti & The Positive Force, and joined them on stage for their last song.

Surprisingly short set, only 1 hour and 38 minutes. You can tell that John Frusciante is not in the band anymore, because most songs have been trimmed down to their bare essentials – no embellishments and no jamming. The songs are basically played exactly like the album versions. What was really strange was that they didn’t play “Californication” the second night. Now, I’m all for varying the setlist, but to omit one of the band’s biggest hits, and a song that I’m sure most people expected to hear is really too bad. The song always get such a big reaction in Sweden with the line “Little girls from Sweden dream of silver screen quotations.”

But what was nice about this concert was how different the setlist was from the previous night. That’s a testament to what an accomplished musician Josh Klinghoffer is. He’s actually taken the time to learn a large part of the Chili Pepper’s material so that they can change up the set in whichever way they see fit.’

To me personally the second night was better than the first, solely based on song selection. I thought it was really great that we got to hear such surprising choices as “She’s Only 18,” “Sir Psycho Sexy,” and “They’re Red Hot.”

Favorite songs of the night: “Scar Tissue,” “She’s Only 18,” “Me and My Friends,” and the wonderfully long “Sir Psycho Sexy.” Next time the Chili’s come around I want to hear all of Blood Sugar Sex Magik from start to finish as part of the show!
