Chad Smith is in Brazil because of the concerts that the Red Hot Chili Peppers played in the country. They passed through Brasilia, São Paulo, Curitiba and Porto Alegre. The musician is due to travel to Chile, where the group will perform on Sunday (19) and Tuesday (21).
During his visit to Brazil, Chad surprised fans and customers at a bar in the Ipanema district, in the southern zone of Rio, on November 2. Alongside a musician from the bar, he performed hits from the group Legião Urbana, such as “Será” and the hit “Otherside,” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
