Is this the best concert line-up ever??? Red Hot Chili Peppers “Blood Sugar Sex Magik Tour” with Nirvana and Pearl Jam as support bands.
The Smashing Pumpkins were on the first leg of the tour from October 16, 1991 thru December 14, 1991 with Pearl Jam instead of Nirvana.
This is where the drama begins…Since the Red Hot Chili Peppers were starting to play large arenas, the promoters of the tour wanted to replace Pearl Jam with a more successful act and contacted Nirvana to replace them. Nirvana agreed but The Smashing Pumpkins (Billy Corgan) refused to play with Nirvana since Corgan once dated Courtney Love. The Pumpkins left the tour which forced promoters to keep Pearl Jam on the tour.
Three legendary bands for $19.50.
The dates with Nirvana and Pearl Jam on the bill only lasted for the remaining nine shows of the US tour but both legs of the tour sound killer.
