Red Hot Chili Peppers Ready First Live Album

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are about to release their first live album, but there are no plans to make it available in North America, according to a group spokesperson. “Live in Hyde Park” is due July 26 in Europe and Aug. 2 in Australia, Japan and New Zealand via Warner Bros. The double-disc set was recorded June 19-20 and 25 in front of an estimated 100,000 fans nightly at the London venue.

Beyond such favorites as “Under the Bridge” and “Give It Away,” and more recent hits like “Otherside,” “Scar Tissue,” “By the Way” and “Californication,” the album sports a number of treats for fans. Among them are covers of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” and Looking Glass’ “Brandy,” a trumpet solo by bassist Flea and three new songs: “Mini-Epic,” “Leverage of Space” and “Rolling Sly Stone.”

Having just wrapped a European tour, the group will play two shows in Japan at the end of the month as well as a July 28 benefit for the arts advocacy organization the Creative Coalition in Boston. Afterward, the Peppers will hunker down on writing songs for their next studio album, which will be the follow-up to 2002’s “By the Way.”
