This VHS contains an odd mixture of music videos recorded from 1984-1991. The Red Hot Chili Peppers in this consist of former and present members (Anthony Kiedis, John Frusciante, Michael "... See full synopsis »
Live at Slane Castle is a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert video released in 2003, two years after the release of their last concert DVD, [link=tt0429027. The concert taped was their second show at Slane Castle in Ireland, the Foo Fighters also played as the opening act, and have their own DVD footage of the concert. It was filmed on August 23, 2003 and the DVD was released on November 17, 2003. The DVD shows the full concert except for the Donna Summer song ''I Feel Love'' covered by guitarist John Frusciante and "Soul to Squeeze", because Frusciante broke a string during that song. Additionally, a mistake made by Frusciante during "Maybe" has been edited on the DVD.Written by
When the concert is running for about 19 minutes and 26 seconds (during the song Universally Speaking) you can see someone in the audience who is crowd surfing in a blue inflatable seat. Around that time it goes terribly wrong and the guy falls and there is nobody to catch him, and you see him disappear face down. See more »
Red Hot Chili Peppers played in front of 80,000 people at Slane Castle on the 23rd of August 2003. They gave their heart and souls into that performance and it really shows on the dvd presentation of the event. Not only should the Chili Peppers be credited with the fact that their performance was fantastic, the camera work was great too - compared to their previous dvd 'Off the map' which show cased some shoddy camera work.
Performing 18 songs including "around the world", "scar tissue", "venice queen" and going back to the favourites "give it away", the classic "under the bridge" and also "power of equality", this dvd is recommended to anyone who is a chili peppers fan or a new fan, or even someone who has never been to a Chili Peppers' concert, this will show viewers what the Peppers are made of.
Anthony Kiedis, Flea and Chad Smith have more energy than any other 41 year old performers and John Frusciante plays his guitar with such passion that cannot be matched with other current guitarists. This video is worth your time and money.
