Red Hot Chili Peppers -- DeKalb, IL -- October 17th, 1991

Not a metal show (obviously) so I figured it would go here.

I found out about this show in my school's newspaper. Apparently Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, and Smashing Pumpkins came to NIU in 1991 and played in one of the big reception halls (called the Duke Ellington Ballroom, pretty big room).

RHCP had released Blood Sugar Sex Magik just three weeks before this show! Pearl Jam had just released their debut album that everyone knows and loves (not me really but still), Ten, and Smashing Pumpkins had just released their debut album as well, Gish. It's crazy how that just years after this performance they would go on to have multi platinum and even diamond status albums!

The article also showed their sets, so I posted this here to see if anyone would be interested in seeing what they all played back in 1991 before they reached where they are now.

Smashing Pumpkins:
Window Paine
Bury Me
I Am One

Pearl Jam
Even Flow
Why Go

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Love Trilogy
Organic Anti-Beat Box Band
No Head No Backstage Pass
Suck My Kiss
Get Up And Jump
Funky Crime
Fela's Cock
Give It Away
Nobody Weird Like Me
If You Have to Ask
Stone Cold Bush
Fopp/Red Hot Mama
Higher Ground
My Lovely Man
Under the Bridge
Subway to Venus
Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Catholic School Girls Rule

Fucking crazy! I never knew that these three bands, let alone RHCP came to my school 20 years ago! It's a shame we never get anything on that par at NIU anymore... But anyway, enjoy!
Full length release "Sentient" now available!

They played an amusement park, Rocky Point, for the local show up this way (they used to have great shows like this - Beaste Boys when they were in that era where people didnt care about them as much, Ministry/Helmet/Sepultura triple bill, etc)
