RHCP at Grammy’s 1/25/19

Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform with rapper Post Malone at the 2019 Grammy Awards. The ceremony, which will be hosted by singer and songwriter Alicia Keys, will be broadcast on February 10th live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS-TV. Post Malone has been nominated for four Grammys this year, including Record of the Year and Album of the Year.

It’s unclear if they will be performing a Post Malone song, a Chili Peppers track or something else. Previously announced performers at the event will include Miley Cyrus, Brandi Carlile, H.E.R., Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, Kacey Musgraves, Dan + Shay and Camila Cabello.

The Chili Peppers have been nominated for 16 Grammys throughout their career, winning six. The band has gotten the prize twice for Best Rock Song, also winning for Best Hard Rock Performance, Best Rock Album, Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Boxed or Limited Edition Package.

But Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis told us a while back that he’s never been concerned with winning awards: [“It’s all part of the bargain, you know. It’s just another sliver of show business that blows away. I don’t put too much weight in the concept of winning or losing an award because it’s so painfully obvious that it’s just an excuse to have a party and to jump up and down for a minute.”] SOUNDCUE (:16 OC: . . . for a minute.)

Red Hot Chili Peppers have been working on music for the band’s 12th studio album.
