Kevin Mazur/WireImageTake a trip back to the year 2006 this week with Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Lollalooza is streaming the Chilis' headlining performance at the festival from '06 as part of its "Lolla from the Vault" series. You can watch it on YouTube beginning this Thursday, May 21 at 8 p.m. ET.
The set list from the show was focused on the then just-released double album Stadium Arcadium, which spawned the hit singles "Dani California," "Snow (Hey Oh)" and "Tell Me Baby."
Stadium Arcadium was also the last Peppers album to feature guitarist John Frusciante, who left the band in 2009. Frusciante just rejoined RHCP at the end of last year and planned to play with the group during their live shows in 2020, but those, of course, have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The performance was recorded while in quarantine -- or, as Boyd puts it, "while in captivity" -- and is accompanied by a surreal, '60s film-style video featuring a group of women who find a pterodactyl on a beach. You can watch it now streaming on YouTube.
The "Myth" cover follows Incubus' new EP, Trust Fall (Side B), which was released in April.
Earlier Tuesday, Incubus announced that their summer tour with 311 and Badflower had been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
ABC/Randy HolmesIt sure has been a day for tour postponement and cancellation news, and Deftones is the latest band to be affected.
Chino Moreno and company have announced that their upcoming U.S. summer tour, featuring support from Gojira and Poppy, will be postponed to 2021. The outing was scheduled to launch July 27 in Portland, Oregon.
"Due to the current regulations, and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we must reschedule our North American summer tour dates," Deftones says in a statement.
Previously purchased tickets will be honored at the newly scheduled shows, the exact dates for which have yet to be announced. Refunds will also be available for ticket-holders.
In addition to the Deftones tour, Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy announced Tuesday that their joint Hella Mega stadium tour would be postponed to 2021. Additionally, Breaking Benjamin's run with Bush, Theory of a Deadman, Saint Asonia and Cory Marks, as well as Incubus' outing with 311 and Badflower, were also canceled today.

"We all had a good feeling about ['Unforgettable'] to begin with, it was just a matter of waiting for its turn to become a single," says frontman Sully Erna. "But even a 'feeling' doesn't guarantee you a number-one spot on Billboard. So, for this to actually happen and see it in writing is really exciting."
Erna adds that he and his band mates are especially excited for the students of New Hampshire's Gilbert H. Hood Middle School, who recorded backing vocals on the "Unforgettable" studio recordings and also appeared in the song's video.
"We are mostly happy for the kids who participated on this one," Erna says. "They're the voice of this song, and the true hidden heroes behind it."
"Unforgettable" is also the fourth song from When Legends Rise to reach number one on Mainstream Rock Songs, following "Bulletproof," "Under Your Scars" and the title track.
According to Billboard, only four other albums have notched at least four number-one singles on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart since the ranking first launched in 1981: Shinedown's The Sound of Madness and ATTENTION ATTENTION, Disturbed's Immortalized, and The Black Crowes' The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion.
Steve Granitz/WireImageChris Cornell's daughter, Lily, has announced Mind Wide Open, a new interview series to raise awareness for those struggling with mental health issues and to provide the resources to help.
With Mind Wide Open, Lily will interview "mental health professionals, public figures, peers" in an effort to "help normalize the open discussion of mental health."
The launch of Mind Wide Open coincides with Monday's three-year anniversary of Chris' death. That's no accident: Lily says she's starting the series "in honor" of her late father.
"We often talked about our experiences with anxiety and depression, and mental health was something that he struggled with throughout his life," Lily explains. "Through him, I learned how important it is to have someone who understands your darkness, validates your experiences, and gives you comfort."
The first Mind Wide Open guest is Laura van Dernoot Lipsky, founder and director of the Trauma Stewardship Institute. Stay tuned to Lily's Instagram for more info.
Lily is one of Chris' three children, along with Toni and Christopher. Toni recently performed a cover of Temple of the Dog's "Hunger Strike" to help raise money for COVID-19 relief.
Meanwhile, Soundgarden's Matt Cameron teamed up with Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless to perform the grunge band's song "Halfway There" Monday, in honor of Chris.
Scott Dudelson/WireImageNine Inch Nails was supposed to go on tour this fall, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced the trek to be canceled before it was even announced.
Frontman Trent Reznor revealed the news in post on the NIN website. "We were excited," he says of the now-scrapped tour. "I'm bumming myself out right now."
In preparing for the run, some tour themed merch was already in production, including a t-shirt listing all the tour dates. According to the shirt, the run was scheduled to kick off September 15 in San Diego, and wrap up the next month with a five-night stand in Toronto.
While the tour isn't happening, Nine Inch Nails will be selling the shirts online and donating the profits to the local food banks in the cities they were scheduled to play. Basically, it's the concert equivalent of getting a t-shirt for the team that lost the Super Bowl.
Earlier this year, Breaking Benjamin released a new album called Aurora, featuring acoustic versions of songs from throughout the band's career. It also includes a new song called "Far Away," featuring Cold's Scooter Ward.
ABC/Rick RowellBillie Joe Armstrong is performing during a virtual tribute concert to Joey Ramone Tuesday night to celebrate what would've been the late Ramones frontman's 69th birthday.
The Green Day frontman will play a song called "Now I Wanna Drink Some Bleach," presumably a reworked version of the Ramones song "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue." We assume that the new title refers to Donald Trump's suggestion that injecting disinfectants could help treat COVID-19, a suggestion the president later claimed was "sarcastic."
In addition to Armstrong, the lineup for the tribute concert includes former Ramones members C.J. andRichie Ramone, Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock, David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick, Blondie's Clem Burke, Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick, Talking Heads members Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, and Patti Smith's guitarist Lenny Kaye.
Additionally, the late Alan Merrill, who co-wrote "I Love Rock 'n' Roll," is also on the bill. Merrill died late March of COVID-19 complications, so maybe he recorded whatever he was planning to perform prior to his death.
You can watch the show starting tonight at 8 p.m. ET via the Joey Ramone Facebook page. The online event will also raise money for Joey Ramone Foundation for Lymphoma Research.
Roger Waters has posted a video announcement expressing his frustration that he isn't allowed to promote any of his solo projects on the Pink Floyd website and social media pages -- and he says it's David Gilmour's fault.
The five-minute clip, posted on Waters' YouTube channel and socialmediasites, Roger starts by discussing how 1.5 million people have viewed a video he posted recently of him performing Pink Floyd's "Mother" virtually with members of his solo touring band, then lamenting that he isn't able to share it via his old band's online outlets.
"Nothing from me is on the website. I am banned by David Gilmour from the website," Waters declares, adding, "I think he thinks because I left the band in 1985 that he owns Pink Floyd, that he is Pink Floyd [and] that I'm irrelevant and I should keep my mouth shut."
Roger goes on to talk about a meeting he convened last year with the surviving Pink Floyd members -- Gilmour and Nick Mason -- which he previously mentioned in a recent Rolling Stone interview.
"It bore not fruit, I'm sorry to say," he notes. "One of the things I asked for, I suggested that because whoever the 30 million of you are that subscribe to the webpage, you do so because of the body of work the five of us [him, Gilmour, Mason, Syd Barrett and Rick Wright] created…In consequence, it seems to me that it would be fair and correct if we should have equal access to you all and share our projects."
Waters also says he's heard that fans have complained that they aren't able to find out about such specific projects of his at Pink Floyd's website, like his This Is Not a Drill Tour and his Us + Them concert film.
