The Red Hot Chili Peppers Are Going Green With A Performance For The Dalai Lama

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are going to perform for the Dalai Lama. Now those are two phrases you don’t expect to see in one sentence, right? But the band will probably (hopefully) tone down their famous antics for the gig for His Holiness next month in Oregon.

The religious leader will be there for the Dalai Lama Environmental Summit. The summit’s site announced that on May 11th, the Peppers will give a special musical performance, in hopes of inspiring “future generations to care for our planet”. The show will take place at the Veterans’ Memorial Colliseum in the city. While His Holiness’s representatives have made the announcement, there has been no comment from the Peppers – presumably because they’re too busy touring, performing and, um, attending Coachella. But the band have long been vocal supporters of the Tibetan cause. According to the Summit’s official website: ”The musical element of this event is intended to be a display of joyful celebration and an inspiration to future generations to care for our planet. The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been great supporters of the Tibetan cause, of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and of the need to work to protect and preserve our environment.”

A good time, for a good cause, what could be better?
