If you’re an old enough die-hard fan of Red Hot Chili Peppers, you would remember that they were supposed to play in Manila 12 years ago.

Due to the Bali, Indonesia bombings at the time, RHCP cancelled their performance there, which also affected their Manila date as well.

More than a decade later, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers finally perfomed at the 7107 International Music festival held in Clark, Angeles City, Pampanga on February 23, 2014.

For a band that started in 1983—yes, more than 30 years ago—they remain powerful performers and amazing musicians (in spite of their recent Super Bowl half-time performance in which they admitted to fake playing to a pre-recorded track).

At the festival, the band performed for one hour-and-a-half. They delighted with their classics “Can’t Stop,” “Under the Bridge,” “Californication,” “By the Way” and ended their encore performance with “Give It Away.”

According to setlist.fm, these are the songs RHCP played at the fest:
1. Intro Jam
2. Can’t Stop
3. Dani California
4. Otherside
5. Look Around
6. Snow (Hey Oh)
7. Soul to Squeeze
8. Right on Time
9. The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie
10. Sleep’s Dark and Silent Gate (Jackson Browne cover with Josh solo)
11. Under the Bridge
12. Ethiopia
13. Me & My Friends
14. Higher Ground

15. Californication
16. By the Way
