It’s been a year of revived activity for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and on Sunday night the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famers brought their celebratory Unlimited Love global stadium tour back home for a sold-out show at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.

Along for the fun were special guests Thundercat and Beck, making it a powerhouse night of music from start to finish.

The allure of this era of the Chili Peppers, of course, lies in the return of John Frusciante, as the guitarist rejoined the group in late 2019 with plans for 2020 activity that was dashed by the pandemic. The band charged forward in April of 2022 instead, releasing a new album, Unlimited Love, that found the unit as cohesive a creative force as it’s been in some time, rejuvenated and reinvigorated by Frusciante’s presence.

The recording sessions were so fruitful, in fact, that the Red Hot Chili Peppers already have another set of songs, Return of the Dream Canteen, coming out in October.

All this to say: the Chili Peppers are firing on all cylinders, so to speak, and it’s led to a well-received world tour featuring varied set lists touching on all eras of the band’s storied career, from new songs to classic hits to deep cuts and more. Sunday’s Los Angeles gig didn’t disappoint in that regard, peppering in (pun intended) “Throw Away Your Television” (from 2002’s By The Way) and “Hard to Concentrate” (from 2006’s Stadium Arcadium) alongside “Otherside,” “Scar Tissue,” “Give It Away” and more.
