The latest installment of Lolla From The Vault will feature the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ performance at Lollapalooza on August 6th, 2006. Lollapalooza will stream the concert via YouTube tonight, May 21st, beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET.
Filmed during the height of the band’s Stadium Arcadium Tour, this performance marked the first Lollapalooza appearance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers since 1992. May of 2006 saw the release of Stadium Arcadium, making it the last Chili Peppers album to feature guitarist John Frusciante, who left the band in 2009 before rejoining in late 2019. The band’s 17-song, 2006 performance at Lollapalooza saw them play seven Stadium Arcadium tracks, with a few deep cuts and fan-favorites mixed in for good measure.

After opening with a jam, the Chili Peppers launched into one of their biggest hits, “Can’t Stop”, before the first Stadium Arcadium track of the night, “Dani California”. After running through “Charlie” and “Fortune Faded”, they returned to the album with “Readymade” before taking it back a few years with “Throw Away Your Television”, off 2002’s By the Way. “Snow ((Hey Oh))” followed, before digging deep to 1987’s “Me and My Friends”. After a cover of Simon & Garfunkel‘s “For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her”, came another Stadium Arcadium track, “Wet Sand”, before 1999’s “Right on Time”. The Chili Peppers finished with “Don’t Forget Me”, “Tell Me Baby”, “By the Way”, and an encore of “Give It Away”.

Lolla From The Vault has added new shows every week amid the coronavirus quarantines. Past shows have included Foo Fighters and The Strokes, among others. Visit the festival’s website for the latest information on upcoming streams.
As far as the Chili Peppers are concerned, while the band had planned to perform at several festivals this summer after announcing the return of John Frusciante, the halt on live music events threw a wrench in those plans. While that is bad news for all, it may give the band some extra time to work on their new album, which drummer Chad Smith confirmed back in January. Head to the Chili Peppers’ website for the latest tour and album information.
