John Frusciante performed with Red Hot Chilli Peppers for the first time after 13 years at a memorial concert in honor for the filmmaker Andrew Burkle on Saturday.

Singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, and guitarist Frusciante performed a three-set, their hit “Give It Away” alongside covers of The Stooges’ “I Wanna Be Your Dog” and Gang of Four’s “Not Great Men”. “Not Great Men” was a tribute to Gang of Four guitarist Andy Gill, who produced Chili Peppers’ first studio album, and who recently passed away over a week ago at the age of 64.

Chili Peppers’ first legitimate concert with Frusciante will kick off in May headlining at a trio of festivals such as the Gulf Shores’ Hangout, Boston Calling, and BottleRock in Napa Valley. The band are also in the works on a new album this year.
