Does Anybody Want Some Magic Johnson?
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Madison Square Garden
Does anybody want some Magic Johnson? I do! I do!
Is that so much to ask for, for my very first Red Hot Chili Peppers concert ever????
I mean, when I finally got around to seeing Pearl Jam last year, they pretty much played a setlist that pretty much perfectly suited what I pretty much REALLY needed and wanted to hear them play. I mean, I kinda left off with Pearl Jam back in the 90s, and didn’t know of anything they did since, but I’ve kept better tabs with the Red Hots over the years, as some of their songs were not only popular, and not only catchy, but downright good!!
And so I cannot complain hearing them rock ‘Dani California’ or ‘By The Way’, but they only dropped 3 songs from Blood Sugar Sex Magik??? And 5 songs from the new album? OK, I didn’t do my homework, like I normally would, mainly cause I didn’t have time to, cause I got a last minute ticket, but c’mon man! Old stuff! Not new stuff! I know new stuff was gonna happen, but it can’t make up a 1/3rd of your barely 100 minuted show. Pearl Jam played for double the amount of time and played double the amount of songs, and so when PJ played stuff I didn’t know, it was fine, cause they played like 381283812 things I DID know!
Damn you Red Hots! You sounded great (when I was hearing what I wanted to hear), but I think you owe it to yer old fans to play the old stuff
But it’s not their fault. It’s all mine. Why didn’t I see them on their Blood Sugar Sex Magik tour when it came to my area??? OK, I was 14, and about a year away from going to concerts all the time, but still!!! How come I didn’t beg/force one of my parents to take me? Or how come I didn’t decide to visit my 5-years older brother at Tulane a year before that, and see Pearl Jam AND the Smashing Pumpkins open for the Red Hots like he did!!??!?!?!??! OMGGGgGgGgGgGG!!! Lucky fcuking bastard. More like, my lovely man
