Lollapalooza is opening up its vault tonight, May 21, for a replay of a headline performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2006.
The show will go live on the Lollapalooza YouTube page at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT/5 p.m. PT, and will benefit Crew Nation to aid tour/venue crews whose work has come to a screeching halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic:
As COVID-19 puts concerts on pause, Crew Nation is extending a helping hand to the touring and venue crews who depend on shows to make a living. Crew members are the backbone of Lolla, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting them through this temporary intermission until we can once again unite millions around the world through the power of live music. Crew Nation is powered by Music Forward Foundation, a charitable 501c3 organization, that will be administering and managing the fund.
Donations to Crew Nation can be made at this link: https://www.livenationentertainment.com/crewnation/
The show originally took place on August 6, 2006, when the Chili Peppers were touring in support of their ninth album, the double-LP Stadium Arcadium, which was released in May of that year.
As a result, the band’s Lollapalooza set features six songs from that record — and this also marked some of the final performances with the band from guitarist John Frusciante, who was replaced a year later by Josh Klinghoffer, who retained his job as lead guitarist until Frusciante rejoined the band in 2019.
