Complaints made about Red Hot Chili Peppers’ exposed nipples during Super Bowl performance

53 complaints were made about Red Hot Chili Peppers’ exposed nipples during their Super Bowl performance last month. Oh well…

The complaints were made to the Federal Communications Commission, the body which regulates television and radio broadcasts in the United States. One of the complaints referenced Janet Jackson’s controversial Super Bowl performance of 2004, during which one of her nipples was exposed. The complaint, via Deadspin, read: “The halftime show had a gratuitous display of nudity and the nipples of more than one adult were were displayed on Broadcast TV. If Janet Jackson can’t show a nipple, then neither should they.”

Following their performance with Bruno Mars at the American Football event, Red Hot Chili Peppers had to confirm that their instruments were not plugged in during the half-time show at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium. The performance attracted the largest audience in the history of the sporting event, pulling in 115.3 million viewers.

During the show, many social media users commented that the band’s instruments did not appear to be plugged in. Blues guitarist blues artist Joe Bonamassa tweeted: “Flea… I mean we all know, but for god’s sake at least try to humor the children.”

In a long message on the Red Hot Chili Peppers website, bassist Flea explained that the bass, drums and guitar were not amplified or plugged in, but the vocals were. He wrote that the band were offered no other option by Super Bowl organisers NFL, and following careful consideration decided to go ahead and appear at the event in spite of having to mime.

“So, when this Super Bowl gig concept came up, there was a lot of confusion amongst us as whether or not we should do it, but we eventually decided, it was a surreal, like, once in a life time crazy thing to do and we would just have fun and do it… We decided that, with Anthony singing live, that we could still bring the spirit and freedom of what we do into the performance, and of course we played every note in the recording specially for the gig.”

Pussy Riot duo in NYC to promote Amnesty International concert @ Barclays Center

At Barclays Center, the sentiment was more bittersweet and tangible than anyone might have realized.

“Live Aid co-organizer Bob Geldof also added his input by addressing the dwindling crowd:  “This is supposed to be a concert to ensnare the youth of America but I don’t see anyone under the age of 60,” he complained, before dedicating his short set to the memory of Pete Seeger.”

With more Marxists in New York than in Moscow, Pussy Riot should expect a chilly reception from New Yorkers.

Two members of the Russian  feminist punk collective who were jailed by their home country for ‘hooliganism,’ held a press conference at Amnesty International’s headquarters to promote yesterday’s event ‘Bringing Human Rights Home’ concert in Brooklyn.  The two members of the punk collective were joined by Madonna, The Flaming Lips, Lauryn Hill, and Cold War Kids, among others.

The two women were convicted of “hooliganism” in 2012 after staging a protest against President Vladimir Putin at a Moscow church.

The duo came to New York City with a political agenda: A brighter future for Russia which includes the overthrow of Vladimir Putin because “We don’t want a shirtless man on a horse leading us.” They also want to visit prisons in the United States.

They did better with satirist Stephen Colbert, but the interview was so bizarre that the answers given by the duo might have left viewers wondering about whether Russia will be better if led by the Pussy Riots.

Welcome to the United States. Have you been to an Olive Garden yet?” That’s how Stephen Colbert opened his interview with Pussy Riot on Tuesday night’s episode of The Colbert Report. Despite speaking through a translator, Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina  were laughing along as Colbert made jokes about being a personal friend of Vladimir Putin and rolling their eyes when he threatened to search them following the taping of the episode. ”We’ve had two years of practice hiding things from searches,” Nadya replied.

When Colbert asked the women why they were against Putin, someone “who’s just trying to preserve the peace and bring Russia to a brighter future,” Masha responded, ”We have different ideas about a brighter future. We don’t want a shirtless man on a horse leading us.” They also intend “to look at prisons in the United States, talk to human rights activists, and learn from their experience.” Following their release, the women have called for reform of the prison Russian system.

Nadya and Masha said they were released early from prison because “[Putin and other government officials] were fed up with us.” Asked if they believed it was a publicity stunt ahead of the Olympic Games, they replied, “We don’t think it was a successful stunt; we don’t think it improved the image of Russian. Maybe Putin made a mistake and should throw us back in jail.

As for why they came to America, Nadya and Masha said they intend “to look at prisons, talk to human rights activists, and learn from their experience.” Following their release, the women have called for reform of the prison Russian system. The duo did not say if they intend to visit the Guantanamo Base prison.

Lastly, Colbert asked about the origins of Pussy Riot and how one (such as himself) could become a member. “Even you” could be in Pussy Riot, they told him. “We could even come up with an honorary Pussy Riot tradition for youbut we’ll only talk to you about this after you call Putin.” Well, ask and you shall receive and by episode’s end, Colbert was sporting some bright new head wear: Colbert Pussy Riot

And if you’re wondering why they call themselves Pussy Riot and why they use the English translation, it’s because “we wanted to let English-speaking people enjoy themselves,” explained Nadya. (???)

Amnesty International Concert @ Barclays Center

Brooklyn’s Barclays Center has hosted everything from boxing matches to pop concerts, but until last night, the venue’s premises hadn’t been used as a recruitment station for the Revolutionary Communist Party. The unique occasion was Amnesty International’s Bring Human Rights Home Concert, the Jingle Ball of charitable giving, a show hyped in the States for its very special guest stars: two of the formerly jailed members of Pussy Riot.

The concert itself, however, didn’t launch with a ton of revolutionary energy. The first hour’s highlights only included Colbie Caillat’s performance of “Brighter Than the Sun” and the Fray’s extended take on — but of course — “How to Save a Life.”

After an introduction from once-jailed Iranian blogger Kianoosh Sanjari, Blondie finally made the concert feel like one, keeping the crowd on its feet even through their 2013 track “A Rose By Any Name.” Before “Call Me” ended the set, Debbie Harry announced the determined message of “One Way or Another” was “especially appropriate for this event.”

If Blondie managed to unite all the disparate fans in the arena, Cake could barely bring together the Cake fans in the building. Fortunately, their set was followed by the most anticipated portion of the night, when Madonna (black coat, Grammys cane, Comme des Fuckdown beanie) introduced recently freed Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, recalling how the Russian leg of her latest tour was threatened for encouraging of “gay behavior” before Nadya and Maria themselves addressed the crowd.

Speaking through a translator, the duo opened with the sort of truisms we had been hearing all night – “We have to remember that freedom is not a given,” for instance – before offering the sort of specific, goal-oriented call-to-action that had heretofore been missing, reading closing statements of trials for political prisoners currently awaiting sentencing. “This is our last chance to say something to them before they are locked up for five or six years,” they explained. And though many had hoped for a performance of some sort, what we received instead was undoubtedly more appropriate, a nod to Amnesty, a “thank you for the support” and an account of ongoing struggles back home. As another member of the collective had told Vice nearly two years ago, “We’ll never give a gig in a club or in any special musical space.”  Yeah…

The crowd’s chants of “Russia will be free” seemed like a perfect cap for the night, but instead marked only the halfway point of the show, and Imagine Dragons began to make their way toward the stage. If the Pussy Riot collective envision rock & roll as a way to disrupt and even change society, Imagine Dragons use it to slowly chip away at the world’s surplus of drum sticks. Lead singer Dan Reynolds snapped the first one midway through their opening song, and by the time they got to the end of “Radioactive,” four of the five band members — everyone but the bassist — was hitting some sort of percussion.

Next up, Lauryn Hill used her time onstage to play a single song suite, one that began with “Ready or Not” and concluded with some liberationist reggae, providing the only performance that seemed truly revolutionary.

Bob Geldof nearly spoke for longer than Cold War Kids had played, then continued to play three songs that left the arena emptier than it had been since that band’s opening set.

Tegan and Sara were short and sweet, giving those remaining the first refreshing dance songs that had been heard in hours, and the Flaming Lips closed with Wayne Coyne dressed in a tinsel cape, standing on a small tower of amps and asking if we realize that everyone we know someday will die. With Pussy Riot — who’ve bravely suffered at the mercy of the Russian legal system — in the building, the sentiment was more bittersweet and tangible than anyone might have realized.

Red Hot Chili Peppers at Barclays Center – Super Hot!

Michael "Flea" Balzary and Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chili Peppers perform at WFAN’s Big Hello To Brooklyn at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on February 1st, 2014 in New York City.

Michael “Flea” Balzary and Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chili Peppers perform at WFAN’s Big Hello To Brooklyn at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on February 1st, 2014 in New York City.

Of all the rock’n’jock concerts capitalizing on New York City’s proximity to the Super Bowl this weekend, only one had the cheerleaders of both the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks shaking their pompoms simultaneously to Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Give It Away,” as balloons repping each band’s team showered down on the revelers. That’s because Saturday night’s “Big Hello to Brooklyn,” the first Chili Peppers concert in New York City since 2006, was a rock’n’jock concert put on by a company that could pull off such a feat: sports-radio station WFAN.

The stagehands were dressed as referees and the cheerleaders shimmied to the Gap Band’s “You Dropped a Bomb on Me” and ZZ Top’s “Tush” between opening acts, but the real athletes were the Chili Peppers themselves, who in their early fifties have the stamina of musicians half their age. Flea shook his head like a wet dog during opener “Can’t Stop” and later shook his body like a simian in the funky “Ethiopia.” He and frontman Anthony Kiedis even moshed a little, tugging at the cable connecting Flea’s bass to his amp, just before set closer “Give It Away.” Either the Chili Peppers play hard or this was no mere warm-up for performing with Bruno Mars during Sunday’s halftime show.

Overall, the group was in fine form, even though it had every excuse to be tired. Midway through the set, Flea told the audience, “We’re just about to go into a period of hibernation and make a new record.” Talking about a need to “progress,” the bassist said Saturday night’s show was meant to be “one last blowout,” and the Chili Peppers played their 17 or so songs as though the concert was the band’s last hurrah.

Even though the band’s first record turns 30 this year, it focused its set list on the last decade or so. The Chili Peppers’ cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground” – a punky highlight in the show – was the only Eighties song the group played. Instead they focused on hits (“Under the Bridge,” “Californication”) and the finer points of their most recent album, 2011’s I’m With You, like the sex-charged “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie.” It was a party.

And in typical party fashion, Kiedis adorned himself in unusual underwear, though it wasn’t the “sock only” look he and his bandmates were known for in the Eighties. Instead, he wore a red bra that some free spirit hurled onstage. He had come onstage wearing a long-tailed suit coat and dress pants with one leg trimmed to reveal (no surprise here) a long tube sock.

Similarly, he flexed his ability for bizarre between-song banter. “Is there anybody here from Flatbush,” he asked after “Dani California,” apropos of nothing and adding Brooklyn neighborhood Greenpoint to the mix. And before “Under the Bridge,” he said to the audience, “Thank you for having tie-dyed pubes above your vagina – or not.” Then he turned the attention toward his guitarist. “Josh does,” he said. And during the thank yous after “By the Way,” he singled out a concertgoer on stage right and said, “If I was closer, I’d make out with you.”

But he didn’t have to make good on such an offer: the Brooklyn audience indulged everything the band did. After pouring in steadily through the evening’s opening bands – one of which, new-wave punks New Politics, might have given the Chili Peppers a run with their frontman’s athletic feats like breakdancing and Iggy Pop-style walking over the audience’s hands – the crowd seemed hungry for the main event. (During the Seahawks cheerleaders’ routine, however, a collective of seemingly mismatched guys wearing Peyton Manning jerseys and New York Hardcore hoodies seemed satiated just by ogling the dancers.) For the band’s three-song encore, the crowd was so enthralled with Chili Peppers songs “Around the World,” “Soul to Squeeze” and even “Give it Away,” releasing a collective roar as the balloons descended in the latter song, they barely noticed the cheerleaders dancing along. Touchdown, Chili Peppers.

Set List:

“Intro Jam”
“Can’t Stop”
“Dani California”
“Factory of Faith”
“Snow ((Hey Oh))”
“I Like Dirt”
“The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie”
“Higher Ground”
“Under the Bridge”
“By the Way”

“Encore Jam”
“Around the World”
“Soul to Squeeze”
“Give It Away”

Pre-Super Bowl concert is part of three-day ‘Kickoff in Brooklyn’ event

Red Hot Chili Peppers will celebrate the next Super Bowl weekend in style. The funk-rock veterans will close out the three-day Kickoff in Brooklyn event, headlining WFAN’s “Big Hello to Brooklyn” concert at the Barclays Center on Saturday, February 1st.

The celebration will also feature performances from New Politics, MS MR, J Roddy Walston and the Business and Basic Vacation. Naturally, Kickoff in Brooklyn isn’t only focused on music: Prior to the concert will be a championship boxing match between “Vicious” Victor Ortiz and Luis Callazo (on January 30th) and an NBA game between the Brooklyn Nets and championship contenders the Oklahoma City Thunder (on January 31st).

Tickets for the concert went on sale on December 20th, starting at 10 a.m. EST. on Ticketmaster and the Barclays Center website. American Express Card members can beat the crowd with an exclusive presale, which lasts from December 17th at 10 a.m. EST to December 19th at 10 p.m. EST. Any remaining tickets can be purchased at the Center’s American Express Box Office starting December 21st at noon EST.

Super Bowl XLVIII takes place on February 2nd, 2014 at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

In other Chili Peppers news, the band is currently still in flux with their next LP, which follows 2011’s I’m With You. This summer, drummer Chad Smith told Billboard that the band was hoping to start work in the fall, but that progress has been reportedly halted by bassist Flea’s tenure with the Thom Yorke-led project Atoms for Peace.

Red Hot Chili Peppers have denied reports they will cover Led Zeppelin when they play the Super Bowl half-time show this weekend.The rockers will play the prestigious half-time performance at the annual American Football event with Bruno Mars on Sunday night (February 2) and earlier this week drummer Chad Smith claimed that the group would cover ‘Dazed & Confused’ on the night.

However, this has now been disputed by Smith, who told KROQ that he was just joking. “People in the media are so gullible sometimes. We will, however, be performing side one of Rush’s ‘2112’,” he said.Smith continued, “Obviously I can’t tell you what we’re going to do, it would ruin the surprise. Come on, you gotta watch! It’s gonna be great, Bruno Mars, we met them, his band are great people, today I’m going to rehearse with them outside in the beautiful weather here in New Jersey, it’ll be a real spectacle, I’m looking forward to it.”

The drummer also explained how the unlikely collaboration came about, “We know of the Bruno Mars, but we’re not homies,” Smith said. “This is what I know: the NFL said to Bruno, ‘You can have a special guest, and choose whomever you like.’ Bruno chose the Red Hot Chili Peppers because he’s a big fan, unbeknown to us. He called us and said, ‘Hey, would you guys be my guest at the halftime show, come and do a jam?’ We said, ‘Sure, sounds like fun.'”Super Bowl XLVIII takes place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on February 2. U2 will premiere their new song ‘Invisible’ during the event. The track will appear in an advert announcing a new partnership with Bono’s charity (RED) and Bank Of America.

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, The Roots and Fall Out Boy will perform at a series of pre-Super Bowl events at New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum between January 30 and February 1.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to headline this summer’s Isle Of Wight Festival.

The band will play Saturday June 14 on the Main Stage, following previously announced Friday June 13 headliners, Biffy Clyro. They join Rudimental, Calvin Harris and The 1975 on the bill. The show is Red Hot Chili Peppers’ first UK festival appearance since 2007. The band have released a statement about their set, explaining that it will be their only UK show of 2014. The statement reads:”To headline the Isle of Wight Festival is a once in a lifetime opportunity, following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix and The Doors. When we were offered the slot, we jumped at the chance… it will be our only show in the UK/Ireland this year… so we intend to make it really special.”

Isle Of Wight Festival runs from June 12-15 in Seaclose Park.

Though the world will get to see them join Bruno Mars on the Superbowl halftime stage the next day at MetLife stadium, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are joining in on the the pre-Bowl fun when a host of massive acts flood the city for a series of great shows in honor of the game. At Barclays, the Chili Peppers will headline their own funky party that will most likely be filled with plenty of shirtlessness and semi-possessed dancing on the band’s end. Though their most recent release, I’m With You, came out nearly two and a half years ago, RHCP has teased the making of another new album since the last tour ended. Maybe they’ll premiere a new tune or two this weekend, but no matter what, they won’t have to worry about having enough material to make two whole stadiums sing along! See You There!

Red Hot Chili Peppers playing Barclays Center w/ MS MR and others before South American festivals (dates)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers don’t have much of a tour scheduled for 2014 at the moment besides some South American festivals, like Lollapalooza Chile & Argentina, but they’ve just added what appears to be a one-off in Brooklyn at Barclays Center on February 1. The night, presented by CBS sports station WFAN happens on the “biggest weekend in sports and entertainment” and is part of the venue’s “Kickoff in Brooklyn” series which includes championship boxing (1/30) at the Nets vs Thunder game (1/31). Opening for the Chili Peppers at this big show will be MS MR, J. Roddy Walston & the Business, New Politics and Basic Vacation. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday (12/20) at 10 Am with an AmEx presale starting Tuesday (12/17) at 10 AM.
