Red Hot Chili Peppers Perform With John Frusciante After A Decade Apart

Red Hot Chili Peppers Perform With John Frusciante After A Decade Apart

Tony Hawk has shared footage of John Frusciante reunited with the Red Hot Chili Peppers during a memorial service this weekend.

Back in December, the band announced that former guitarist Frusciante would be rejoining them after a decade apart and now a clip of them performing together has been shared online.

The reunion took place at a memorial service for movie producer Andrew Burkle, who tragically died last month aged just 27.

In a tribute, Hawk wrote that Burkle was 'a beloved son, friend and brother to the lucky ones that surrounded him'.

He went on to thank Burkle for his work for the Tony Hawk Foundation - a charity that helps set up public skate parks - and credited him with helping the foundation have 'landmark events' for ten years.

Sharing a clip of the memorial service, Hawk wrote: "Thank you to the Burkle family for including us in your celebration of Andrew. His passion for life was contagious & his spirit lives on through our work at @THF.
