Red Hot Chili Peppers concert chronology

The Roll on the Red Tour was a concert tour by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. The tour followed the band's hugely successful By the Way tour. During this tour the band recorded their first live album, Live in Hyde Park. Near the tour's end, the dates mainly consisted of benefit and tribute shows including the Bridge School Benefit and a tribute show to longtime friend, Johnny Ramone. The band's performance was released two years later on DVD as Too Tough to Die: A Tribute to Johnny Ramone. Ramone, who was too sick to attend the tribute (although show host, Rob Zombie called him during the event), would pass away a three days after the tribute show. John Frusciante was among many famous friends and family to attend his funeral and memorial celebration. On March 17, 2015, the band released Cardiff, Wales: 6/23/04 a free MP3 download of the entire show through their website.

Tour overview

While the tour was short it saw the band perform many new songs that were mostly written and recorded during the sessions for their Greatest Hits album including "Rolling Sly Stone", "Leverage of Space", "Mini-Epic (Kill for Your Country)" and "Desecration Smile". Studio versions of the first three were never released however "Desecration Smile" was eventually re-written and featured on the band's next album, Stadium Arcadium where it would eventually be released as a single. "Fortune Faded" a song written in 2001 and first performed on their 2001 tour was re-written and released on their 2003 Greatest Hits album and as a single. Other highlights on the tour included the first performance of "Out in L.A." since 1992, "Get on Top" being heavily featured on the tour after only being performed once prior to this tour and the returns of "Easily", "My Lovely Man", "Emit Remmus", "Road Trippin'" and " I Like Dirt" after a two to three-year absence.
