The Red Hot Chili Peppers stopped off in San Diego on their “I’m With You” tour back on September 23. I photographed the show for the venue, the Valley View Casino Center. It was great finally be able to photograph the RHCP in concert. I had seem them before but never from the photo pit with my camera. With most big stage shows, the real challenge is getting all the performers in the same shot. The RHCP were no different especially with the wild antics of Flea running from one side of the stage to the other.
The camera gear for this show was the Nikon D4 and Nikon D700 with the 20-200mm f/2.8 and the 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses. I also used the 16mm f/2.8 for some fisheye shots to at least try to get the whole band in the same frame.
Here are the rest of the shots..
