Photos and cutline by Jennifer BronenkantAfter almost 30 years as a band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are no longer kids. Lead singer and group founder Anthony Kiedis celebrated his 50th birthday along with fellow founder bassist Flea (Michael Balzary), age 50, longtime band member drummer Chad Smith, age 51, and most recent and youngest band member guitarist Josh Klinghofffer, age 33, at BMO Harris Bradley Center last thursday night. Having been recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, these veteran rockers may not be the innovators they once were but can still pull in an enthusiastic crowd with their high energy live show. Flea is as intense as ever as a bass player and as presence on stage. Even Klinghoffer who is recovering from breaking his foot on stage this summer, kept up with the frantic pace even from a mostly seated position.
