After having to postpone their original Denver show date, the Red Hot Chili Peppers returned to Denver without missing a beat. The best bass player in the entire world (in my humble opinion), Flea entered the Pepsi Center stage at the start of the show to announce the opener and childhood friend Jack Irons who killed it on drums. Afterwards, Trombone Shorty got the party bumping with their fun big New Orleans jazzy band. Both openers were the stuff of legends and fans were thoroughly amped for their favorite band to play. The RHCP started with some classic shredding on the bass, guitar and drums before lead singer Anthony Kiedis came on stage to sing to, or maybe rather with, the crowd. The night was a wonderful celebration for both Flea’s birthday and for the love of music. The talent of this musical group could be seen and heard throughout the whole Pepsi Center. I was simply in awe of finally getting to photograph one of my most favorite groups. Photography by Meg O’Neill (@letgomymego).
