Red Hot Chili Peppers Moved From Parking Lot

Organisers of a free RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS concert have moved the show from a parking lot to a grassy field, after realising many revellers may find high desert temperatures too hot to handle.

A crowd of 50,000 concertgoers were expected to descend on a parking lot hear the Las Vegas Strip on 2 July (05) to celebrate the gambling haven's centennial.

But planners of the concert, which will also feature WEEZER, have now moved the event to a soccer field at the Silver Bowl Sports Complex.

Las Vegas Mayor OSCAR GOODMAN says, "On reflection, this is a better place."

As well as concerns about how the crowd would handle triple digit temperatures, security planners cited difficulties getting people to and from the original site.

Organisers have also added a $100,000 (GBP52,631) fireworks show to the free concert, one of a series of events this year (05) marking the city's 100th anniversary.
