Californication was the 7th studio album by Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was released in 1999 on Warner Bros. Records. Californication was an instant success, ultimately selling over 15 million copies world wide. It is to this day the most selling album by Red Hot Chili Peppers. It's continuing sales have resulted in it being five times certified platinum. The album peaked at #3 in the Billboard top 200 album chart. It also produced several hit singles. Scar tissue, Californication, Around The World and Otherside are among those.
The critics were all over happy with Californication. They felt the band had wiped away the bad things after One Hot Minute, which was a commercial failure. Frusciantes return got a lot of the credit for Red Hot Chili Peppers reappearance as a top rock band. Some critics were however disappointed with the new sound. They felt that the lack of Blood Sugar Sex Magik's funk sound made Californication an a-typical Red Hot Chili Peppers album, and that the fan would not take kindly to it.
Immediately following the release of the album, Red Hot Chili Peppers started the Californication tour. It was a world wide tour, starting in the United States. In the closing of their U.S. leg they played at Woodstock. This concert became infamous for the violence it resulted in.
The European leg of the Californication tour, started of with a free concert in Moscow's red square. It actually managed to gather 200.000 Russians. Kiedis said in his biography that Red Hot Chili Peppers needed police escort to get near the stage. After their European leg, they had a few concerts back in the U.S., before concluding the tour with concerts in Australia, Japan and Brasil.
