Red Hot Chili Peppers reunited with long time member, John Frusciante, at a Tony Hawk Foundation memorial event for the late film producer Andrew Burkle (son of Ronald Burkle). The event was the first time they played together since 2007. Dave Navarro was also in attendance and he got to jam with his old bandmates as well.

Tony Hawk wrote on his Instagram page: “Today we celebrated the life of Andrew Buckle. He was a beloved son, friend and brother to the lucky ones that surrounded him. Because of him, @tonyhawkfoundation had landmark fundraising events in Beverly Hills for 10 years in a row and I am forever grateful for his support in our mission.
Thank you to the Burkle family for including us in your celebration of Andrew. His passion for life was contagious, and his spirit lives on through our work. A perfect example of Andrew’s magnetism was displayed this afternoon when this all-star lineup came together to perform Iggy Pop and Gang Of Four (and RHCP) songs in his honor. Thank you Andrew, we will miss you beyond words. #acbrox.”
Their performance included a rendition of “Give It Away” and a cover of The Stooges “I Wanna Be Your Dog.” John also joined past member Dave Navarro and Jane’s Addiction for a performance of “Mountain Song“.
