The Red Hot Chili Peppers have demanded a meditation tent backstage at the BRITs so they aren't tempted to party. The US rock band - who famously battled heroin addiction - are determined to stay sober for their performance at tonight's London ceremony. They plan to keep their distance from other stars who might be dabbling with drugs and drink and the tent will be a haven for them. A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "They don't want to mix with anyone getting high. They want to focus on their performance and have asked organisers to provide a separate, purple, shrouded tent." Amy Winehouse, The Killers and Oasis are also among the acts confirmed to perform tonight.The Grammy-award winning Chillis - fronted by lead singer Anthony Kiedis - have not been nominated for any BRIT awards.
