Today,Oceana, the largest international advocacy organization dedicated solely to ocean conservation, announced that legendary rock band the Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline their fourth annual “Rock Under The Stars” celebration.
The intimate event will take place at a private residence in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 12, and raise funds to help rebuild abundant and biodiverse oceans.
“Sting heroically helped us launch Rock Under the Stars in 2016. In the following years, Don Henley and Dead & Co. featuring John Mayer helped us make it one of LA’s most exciting and elite fundraisers,” said OCEANA Board President Keith Addis. “This year, with the generous support of the amazing Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rock Under the Stars is firmly established as a world-class event which will help OCEANA fund its mission to stop the scourge of ocean plastic pollution.”
One of the most successful acts in rock history, Red Hot Chili Peppers, which is singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, have sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs, and won six Grammy Awards, including “Best Rock Album” for Stadium Arcadium, “Best Rock Performance By a Duo or Group” for “Dani California,” “Best Rock Song” for “Scar Tissue,” and “Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocal” for “Give It Away.” The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2012. The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ last studio album, The Getaway, was released by Warner Bros. Records on June 17, 2016.
Last year’s Rock Under The Stars raised over $1.1M and featured the first performance ever by Dead & Co. for a non-profit fundraiser.
