Red Hot Chili Peppers have added a Pennsylvania show to their 2023 stadium tour itinerary. The band is slated to play on Wednesday, September 27 at Hersheypark Stadium. Special guests will be St. Vincent.

The show marks the band’s first performance in Hershey since July 17, 2000.

Ticket pre-sale begins tomorrow, Wednesday, June 7 at 10am EST HERE and general tickets go on sale this Friday, June 9 at 10am EST HERE.

The Chili Peppers are in the midst of a world tour behind their latest release, Return of the Dream Canteen (Warner Records). The trek launched on March 29 in Vancouver, Canada at BC Place. The band is currently overseas for several headlining shows and festival appearances across Europe and the UK.

Last October, Red Hot Chili Peppers surprised fans with their new album Return of the Dream Canteen. It was the band’s second all-new LP in less than a year. It followed up Unlimited Love, which saw the band reunite with guitarist John Frusciante for the first time since 2016’s Stadium Arcadium.

In a statement regarding the new record, the band said, “When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. Return of the Dream Canteen is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed. Made with the blood of our hearts.”

Last year, the Chili Peppers received the Global Icon Award at the MTV Video Music Awards. The band also took home the hardware for Best Rock Video for “Black Summer.” It marked the ninth VMA victory of the band’s career. The group performed at the award show in New Jersey at the Prudential Center for the first time in over two decades. They put together a medley of their VMA Award-winning song “Black Summer” and their 2002 hit “Can’t Stop.”

To date, the Chili Peppers have sold 80 million albums worldwide. Their music has earned them six GRAMMY® Awards throughout their career. In 2012, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
