While passing through Brazil, the Red Hot Chili Peppers He has only played two shows in the country so far but has already attracted a lot of attention from fans due to his unique setlist.
As we told you here, the repertoire in Brasília this Tuesday (7) was quite different from the opening performance in Rio de Janeiro on the 4th and many people were irritated for not having heard their favorite songs from the band in the capital of country.
Faced with the curious situation, TMDQA! went after RHCP’s numbers on Spotify and confirmed that, of the Californian group’s five most played songs on the streaming service, only one hit by the Chili Peppers made the setlist in Brasília.
In this case, we are talking about the anthem “Californication”which accumulated 1,232,555,969 reproductions on Spotify at the time of writing, placing second in the ranking.
Ahead of the iconic single from the album of the same name released in 1999 is just “Under the Bridge”, with 1,234,304,373 plays on the platform. The album track Blood Sugar Sex Magic (1991) was left out of Red Hot’s second show in the country in 2023 and caused a large part of the complaints from Brasilia residents, as it was in the written setlist and was changed at the last minute by “I Could Have Lied”.
