It was a special homecoming for the Red Hot Chili PeppersChad Smith on Thursday night (Feb. 2) in Detroit.

Smith and company played before a full complement of the drummer’s family — including his mother Joan Smith, seated side-stage, and older brother Brad — as the Chili Peppers resumed the North American leg of their The Getaway World Tour after a 10-day break. Besides the good company, it also gave Smith, who was raised in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Hills, one last chance to play at Detroit’s venerable Joe Louis Arena, which is closing in late summer after 38 years and will be replaced by the new Little Caesars Arena.
