I've seen a few shows at the Saddledome and must say out of all the stadiums I've been to the pitch on the seats at the Saddledome is the steepest. You do NOT want to fall down the stairs while going to your seat as you'll fall a long ways down them.
Anyway - the show by RCHP was awesome. They started with a little jam and then went right into their hit "Can't Stop" and from there it was full out. Their stage was pretty basic but the most unique part of their show was the 10 000 LED lights, hanging by a strand, that would shift to different patterns. That was totally awesome.
- Intro Jam
- Can't Stop

Solid and really great. Josh Klinghoffer (the newest guy) really did the guitar parts justice and played well. The rest of the band are accomplished vets and make playing look easy.
I got to say that the Calgary crowd was awesome and a very mixed batch of ages. RHCP appeals to multiple generations for sure.
