(relevant?) RHCP album stream, iTunes ticket promo screwup, & Irving Plaza pics/reviews
RHCP STREET TEAMERS? (via)
“Apple iTunes customers are voicing their displeasure with the company on Tuesday as codes promised to them to purchase tickets to the Red Hot Chili Peppers failed to go out. In a promotion launched last month, fans that pre-ordered the band’s new album on iTunes were told they would also receive an email with a code that they could use at Ticketmaster.com starting May 9 to purchase concert tickets before they go on sale to the general public on May 13.” [Macworld]
AOL Music is streaming Stadium Arcadium.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers played Irving Plaza last night (May 8, 2006). Productshop was there. My friend Nick was there too. He’s the same Nick who saw Pearl Jam at Irving Plaza a few nights earlier. To get in to Pearl Jam he waited 24 hours on line. To get in to RHCP he asked the first guy he saw outside the venue for an extra. Not only did the guy have an extra, he gave it to him for free. Nick’s pictures below…
Here’s another photo I found on this Livejournal:
“How amazing to see a band like them, at this point in their career, playing an intimate venue. And I had a blast. The only problem is, the show was loud. Painfully loud. To the point where I had to leave my prime spot about 25 feet from the stage to stand in the back near the bar. My ears are still ringing. It’s embarrassing to say, but maybe I’m getting too old for a show like this. Is 26 old?” [Last Stop: This Town]
