    I thought you had to ring in and win tickets.

    Wow, really? Perhaps they're giving away tickets that way AND getting people to phone in (because people have been phoning in for tickets all week).

    I am soooo behind the times, today is the first I've heard of it - what a berk

    Edit: Have checked the Radio 1 website and it claims the gig is actually tomorrow at a secret location, by ticket only. And yet in the Standard there's a 90 minute gig advertised outside BBC TV Centre on Saturday 15th, first come first served - REALLY confused now!

    Just had to check the paper again in case I was hallucinating and it quite clearly says:

    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Free 90 minute live gig organised by Top of the Pops, 15 April, outside the BBC, Wood Lane W12. From 5.30 pm. First come first served.

    WTF?

    This is on page 11 of tonight's Evening Standard.

    Hmmm, interesting. I don't remember hearing about people being able to just turn up or anything, and I listen to Radio 1 a lot. I'd get to the venue quick if I were you. :p: That does make it sound like you can just turn up until they run out of space or something.

    There is a secret gig at a small venue tonight, which is for Radio 1 competition winners, industry insiders etc. I doubt this is what's being advertised in the newspaper as it's, y'know, secret.

    I'm sure there will be hundreds of free gigs and TV appearences in the coming weeks though, as there are every time they release something new. I'm certain they have some special contract with the BBC, they plug them like crazy every time they have any new material.

    Ah, so Radio 1 were giving away tickets. I think Power FM have been giving away RHCP tickets as well but I don't know if they were for the same gig.

    I'm not confusing this with last night's "secret" gig (that's the one that people were calling R1 to get tickets for). Either the standard has made it up or there's another TOTP gig today from 5.30 first come, first served

    (tired of repeating self now and wishing I'd never started the thread :eek: )

    Good job James Brown supported them when I went to watch, as I got to see some decent singing that day.

    Its all about personal taste, you don't like them, fair do's, but there are people that do :p:

    Sounds like a good little gig, probably like someone said, something to do with their soon to be released new album, so they get publicity..

    First ive heard about it today.. oh well..
