American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers wowed the crowds at The Arena on Wednesday night, in the first Yas Island mega concert held as part of the inaugural Abu Dhabi Showdown Week.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers thrilled fans during their first-ever UAE gig with a typically funky and energetic list of hit songs from their 36-year career at the summit of rock.

The four-piece band, whose line-up includes charismatic singer Anthony Kiedis, iconic bassist Flea, long-time drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, drew huge cheers from The Arena crowd when they opened with Can’t Stop, before launching into classics Otherside, By The Way and Californication – the title track from the 1999 album, which is marking its 20th anniversary this year.
