Red Hot Chili Peppers have confirmed a 2022 world tour. News of the trek was confirmed via a news parody video that the band released. Check out the hilarious clip below.
International dates will commence next June, and North American dates will follow starting in July.
In an exclusive interview with The Rock Revival back in May, drummer Chad Smith revealed that the band is working on a new album.
“We’re making our record. And when it’s done, which should be…I don’t know when. I’ll get in trouble if I say, ‘It’s going to be done then.’”
Red Hot Chili Peppers parted ways with guitarist Josh Klinghoffer back in December of 2019. Shortly after, they reunited with Frusciante. A few months later, the Chili Peppers performed with Frusciante at the Tony Hawk Foundation’s memorial concert for Andrew Burkle.
John Frusciante was a member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers for their 1989 outing Mother’s Milk and their seminal 1991 album Blood Sugar Sex Magik, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. He left the group but would return in 1998 to play on Californication, By The Way, and Stadium Arcadium, before exiting again in 2009.
