Chilli Peppers vs Die Antwoord

04 February 2013, 07:07

So I escaped the platteland for a weekend to see a live music concert. Haven't been in a city for a while, but I was surprised I still can negotiate the traffic - some things you never forget.

The main attraction was the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, but I was also keen to see Die Antwoord, I was fascinated by some of their weird videos - more than the music.

Being in such a huge stadium (soccer city) the performers looked like ants on the stage. Die Antwoord sadly was a big dissappointment for me, to the point of being embarrassing. A corny act based on shock rather than talent, with the P and F word being a large part of their act. Worst was they did not even use the big screens on either side of the stage to show their performance, they just put silly pictures on them. So all I saw were a few ants on the stage. Their performance of my favourite song, Ninja, was really poor ... I think I've got bored of their weirdness now, the novelty has worn off, I'm no longer a "fan". (Ok, never really was a fan but I found them interesting - I don't anymore)

RHCP on the other hand was sublime. I'll be a fan of theirs till the day I die. They used the big screens so you could actually see them performing, it made the whole thing so much better. I just wish I did not drink so much beer, I'm nearly fifty and I still have not learned to pace myself ... I think its because the queues were so long and slow, you had to buy 3 at a time or you'd miss the concert. Next time I'm having one and thats it, beer is not that important when you have such great entertainment, it doesn't need enhancing.

Oh, and we used a taxi - R800, but worth it, there was hectic traffic to the concert, that would have stressed me. Added to a good experience - won't happen again for a few years I'm sure.
