    What utter kak!! This is what happens when a guy has too much free time on his hands and tries to be edgy and cool with his controversial ideas that irritate and annoy! This Troll has this platform to spout his nonsense. I personally don’t think RHCP have lost anything in the way of their musical talent and awesomeness also we have never had them here! Same goes for linkin park just because you feel that the direction of their new stuff isn’t as good as their previous stuff everyone feels the same! And by posting this horse shit comic you knew there would be ppl like me to shut you up and it makes you happy then good for you buddy you succeeded at being a dickface! I’d rather watch RHCP and Linkin Park regurgitated than most of the new pop/dubstep nonsense Ps: eat a dick! Cheers

    In 1992 I had Blood Sugar Sex Magik on cassette. I still had thick hair and only just had pubes. RHCP at the height of their powers. It’s now 20 years later and a series of crap albums with diminishing returns they decide to tour South Africa and we all jump around like this is great and not a totally exploitative act by shit promoters and a mainstream audience who don’t know any better and are willing to accept outdated mediocrity. We’re the bottom of the barrel kids. Where old bands go to die.

    You don’t come onto mahala.co.za to read Garfield or Spiderman. You come here for local shit with no structure that is only funny for pub scraps. If you want something with substance then go buy an Archie with your next weeks taxi money at your local flea market and a quart with your change.

    I was a RHCP fan and I still am but they have neglected SA since 1985 and now they want to jump on stage dancing with saggy man boobs with siff schnorrs to radio wank pop. Fuck those ou’s. It’s like watching Steve Fatar at Zack’s with Fruit & Veggies. Fuck off! I hope anthony wears a shirt.

    I’m interested as to who the musical geniuses on here feel the promoters should be bringing to SA. While it’s clear you obviously have absolutely no understanding of the promotion business (and make no mistake, it is a business. This isn’t charity these guys are doing) let’s hear who you think would be relevant enough to warrant the cost of getting a band to SA. I think we can all agree that the Pepper post BloodSex don’t really matter but hey, stadium gigs are fun are try tell me you’re not going to jump around when they drop Give It Away. You truly do need to understand the cost of getting bands down here as well as the fact that anyone who’s massively popular and “right now” is booked up two years in advance for American, Asian and European dates that they’re getting way more for than what the promoters down here can afford to offer. Dry your eyes and go support the smaller international gigs to show the other promoters that they have a fan base to rely on when booking less commercial bands. Vote with your feet motherfuckers.

    On second thoughts I may have been overly critical of the comic as it lack of taste and unmainstream view of the band aside, it does have some simple charm. Regardless monday approaches I will be on the lookout for an archie comic as I’d like to see what that rascal jughead is up to! 🙂

    Pure genius.
    On a slightly different tangent, listen to True Men Kill Coyotes or Police Helicopter, compared to the latest drivel RHCP have manufactured for be a number one radio friendly play, and only one term comes to mind…weak sell-out shite. Mariah Carey has got more balls than them nowadays. Bring her out in fact, would rather watch her than Anthony Kiedis.

  24. Melk Skud says:

    How about some Pearl Jam, while we’re raiding the archive? Or Bruce Springsteen, before he fucken dies!

    And just off the top of my ipod… The Black Keys, Manu Chao, Odd Future, Damien or Stephen Marley (or both), Frank Ocean, Bon Iver, The Roots, fucken M.I.A, Mike Snow. I’d settle for Aloe Blacc or Franz Ferdinand… I’d probably even turn out to see Kanye.

    Yes, I was at Little Dragon, which rocked even if the event organisation was pathetic.

    And in case you hadn’t noticed, stadium gigs are kak. Now get back into that Delorean Goodcall, the 80s is calling you!

    really?? fighting like a bunch of pansies over a band coming here? who gives a shit about RHCP. even Kedis’ book was a sell out. these guys were cool when we were kids, and that’s what Big concerts is supplying to. That and all of the pond scum who listen to 5fm and wank over the morning drive.
    I’d rather ram a vodka soaked tampon up my ass than attend this bullshit concert. Actually, I’d rather just do that right now… see ya!

    I donno what u guys are on about – Californication,By the way and Staduim Arcadium are all fucking classic albumns – if they carried on making the same albumn year after year ie blood/sugar pt 2 & pt 3 they woulda died long ago – bands have to grow and make new stuff to stay fresh – I for one am frickin glad they moved away from the old funky shit – an I bet all these haters are gonna b in at the gig going off – RHCP fucking rule

    If you don’t like RHCP just don’t go see them. Why do people on this site love complaining so much? If I want to go enjoy a concert by a band i used to love, so fucking what? You okes are so judgmental, not cool.

    If an obscure artist comes over no one supports them, if an indie artist comes its labeled as hipster, if a popular artist comes its regarded as a sell out 5fm wank tank.

    Let’s rather book Steve Hofmeyr…
