"Aaron" saw an ad for what appeared to be a gig for one of his favorite bands, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He couldn’t believe his luck. The band was performing on Thursday, April 28 at the Magic Bag, a small venue in Suburban Detroit, and tickets were under $20.
"They were doing smaller venues out west, doing little record stores, free shows, things like that,” says Aaron. “I was like, oh my god, maybe I’m lucky.” He immediately bought four tickets.
Below is a look at the band this guy actually paid to see.
According to the band’s website, the Red NOT Chili Peppers “pay tribute to the ultimate funk rock quartet — a band who has transcended three decades of chart-topping success as well as developed one of the largest die-hard fanbases in the world.”
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are coming through Detroit on their current tour, performing on Sunday, Aug. 14 at the much, much, much larger Comerica Park stadium along with the Strokes and Thundercat. Tickets are still available and range from $95 to $136.
