Red Hot Chili Peppers have reached the southern hemisphere and played the first show of the 2013 tour in Auckland last night (January 14).

With a career spanning almost 30 years it is getting pretty hard for Red Hot Chili Peppers to perform all the hits. The NZ show was more of a Best Of set.

Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline Big Day Out when they reach Australia later this week.

Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform again tonight in Auckland for Live Nation.
