The Cure & Red Hot Chili Peppers
If the electronic musicis not enough motivation for you, two legendary bands in active since the 80s and with numerous hits, The Cure and Red Hot Chili Peppers,postulate as an alternative of classic rock guitars and a barely abusing synthesizer.
On Saturday November 26th, the band led by the charismatic Robert Smith will be in the magnificent Palau Sant Jordi, same scenario where two months earlier, on October 1st, will play the no less charismatic Anthony Kiedis with his band of authentic Californian rock.
In autumn the league of Spanish football has already begun (La Liga) and it is the momentto decide thewinter champions: the best teams fight for the championship title, and the remaining five will fight for a placein a European competition (Champions or UEFA).
