The show with 10 thousand visitors was broadcast live.
The Egyptian Ministry of Tourism organized a concert by the American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers in front of a pyramid complex in the city of Giza. The artists played more than two hours. This is the first international concert near these historic buildings since 2015.
Red Hot Chili Peppers opened the show with the song “Can’t Stop” from the album “By The Way” in 2002, after which they performed many hits, including Californication and Dark Necessities.
As stressed by Reuters, including such a concert, the Egyptian authorities are trying to restore popularity among tourists to Egypt, which fell after 2011 due to riots.
Getting here was very difficult, but it was definitely worth it. I always wanted to fly to Egypt, look at the pyramids, it’s amazing, it was a dream. And see here RHCP, my favorite band.

The show was held at an audience of more than 10 thousand people. According to Reuters, fans came from 67 countries.
The concert was attended by fans from Russia.

@chilipeppers четвёртые музыканты за всю историю, которые отыграли концерт в этом месте. И вы знаете что? Пожалуй нет группы, которая была бы достойна этого больше чем они. Люди приехали со всего мира на этот концерт, мы видели все расы и национальности вчера. 36 лет ребята раскачивают фанатов и все 36 лет это им удаётся на высшем уровне. Спасибо, за то что это со мной вчера случилось. #rhcp #redhotchilipeppers #giza #concert #live #egypt
“Perhaps there is no group that would be worth it more than they are. People came from all over the world to this concert, we saw all races and nationalities yesterday. ”

Red Hot Chili Peppers has been around for over 35 years, and has seven Grammy awards. The band is currently writing their 12th studio album. In the fall of 2018, work on the release was interrupted due to fires in California: the RHCP house did not burn down, but the artists “could no longer stay there.”
