18 January, 2013: The Red Hot Chili Peppers are known as much for their lack of clothes as they are their huge stadium shows and, as the band push into their fifties, they show no sign of stopping either.

Jetting to Australia to perform at Sydney's Big Day Out, rarely-clothed band members Anthony Kiedis and Michael 'Flea' Balzary spent much of ther show shirtless, showing admirable physiques for men with five decades of experience and indulgence to their names.

The semi-nudity continued during a press photoshoot after the event, when Flea tore off his shirt and thrust his crotch at photographers - leaving little to the imagination.
