News: Monday 27th March 2000   :  No European gigs this year!
As the management of RHCP have informed me, contrary to prevailing rumours the Peppers will not play any concerts in Europe this year. This applies to festivals as well as possible solo gigs. This information has been verified to me personally by their spokesperson and is a definite decision .The reason for this is that: .."the Europeans have had them three times already, while America hasn't had a proper tour in years." Therefore touring America is given priority.

Thanks a million times for all of you chatroom visitors tonight, for having made this a true reunion and spreading such a wonderful spirit ! I really hope it can stay that way - It's up to you !The room is, what you make out of it, all of you.. so please keep the habitual troublemakers out - don't give them any hold over this room too like they did in the old one- put them on ignore, if u are all doing it, it works!
Of course you can tell them your opinion and defend yourself, the thing is, not to make this actually enjoyable for them though - most of all they want attention and the more they can annoy you, and make the nice folk leave, the more they'll love it...

New section on the "Pictures" page: Offstage - Home and Away. It is launched with a private photo of of Anthony "Dances with Wolves Kiedis" - more to come soon!

1.) I apologize for the current trouble with both chatrooms. If you enter chili chat, it appears that no one can read you, or you them. In the second room, which I had installed for precisely this purpose, people have reported that they can't register and it says" temporary room" The chatting in room2 works fine though once you have entered.- Apparently this host has technical problems too! I've mailed both of them and looked up their tech help pages but the problems weren't listed. All I can do unfortunately, is to wait for the hosts to solve this - Hopefully by Monday. Please keep checking back, thank You for Your patience.
- I've added a second, different chatroom due to the current technical problems of Multicity. So if you have problems in the Multichat, just go to "Chatroom 2".
