Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform a one-off gig at Egypt’s pyramids in Giza on March 15. But if you haven’t got a ticket, don’t worry: the whole concert will be live-streamed via the band’s YouTube page, as well as on Twitter and Facebook. The live-stream will kick off at 3pm ET.

In a statement ahead of this historic gig, the band’s bassist, Flea, said: “Before each new place my body tingled with excitement, a yearning for a new mystery to unfold, a fascination with a new culture, the possibility of new friends, tasting new food, smelling new tastes, absorbing new rhythms.

“Learning. Learning. Learning. It is happening right now; my heart is abuzz with joy at the prospect of performing in Egypt. I’m so grateful and humbled for the experience.”

The American rock band, who have had seven top 10 albums in the US, joins a long list of Western artists who have performed at the pyramids, including Frank Sinatra, Sting and Shakira.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently working on their 12th album, a follow-up to 2016’s The Getaway.
