Red Hot Chili Peppers To Play Abu Dhabi?

If you fit into the center of the ven diagram between UFC and Red Hot Chili Peppers fans, you might be in for a real treat soon. Dana White just hinted that the California rockers “might” headline a show in UAE as part the events surrounding UFC 242 this September. Speaking with Barstool Sports’ Robbie Fox recently, the UFC head honcho reveals, “They’re talking about having the Peppers play in Abu Dhabi in conjunction with the fight,” adding that both Anthony Keidis and Flea are “huge fans,” with the feeling being mutual. RHCP last played the Middle East back in March with a performance outside the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
