The guitarists first performance with the band in nearly 13 years

The Red Hot Chili Peppers performed at a private memorial hosted by the Tony Hawk Foundation in LA this past weekend.

The performance was highlighted by the return of long time guitarist John Frusciante who left the band nearly 13-years ago for personal reasons. Frusciante looked right at home as the band settled into classic hits like Give It Away before firing into a cover of the The Stooges’ I Wanna Be Your Dog.

The memorial also saw Jane’s Addiction take the stage which marked a second reunion with former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist, Dave Navarro, who played on the bands album, One Hot Minute.

The bands next scheduled performances are the BottleRock festival in Napa Valley May 22-24, and Funkyard in Tel Aviv on June 10.
