Openers include the Strokes, A$AP Rocky, Beck, Haim, St. Vincent and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals.
Todd the Squirrel (Flea) and Johnson Hammerswaddle (Anthony Kiedis) were back at it on Thursday morning (Oct. 7) with the latest fake news report about the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 2022 global stadium tour. Only this time the funk-loving pranksters in phony mustaches and bad wigs actually had dates to share for the massive outing that is slated to kick off on June 4 in Seville, Spain at the Estadio La Cartuja De Sevilla.
The 32-city outing marks the second return of beloved guitarist John Frusciante and the Chili Peppers’ first U.S. stadium tour, on which they’ll play a selection of their most beloved hits as well as songs from their as-yet-untitled new album, according to a release announcing the dates.
The road trip will feature support from a wide range of special guests, including The Strokes, A$AP Rocky, Beck, Haim, St. Vincent, Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals, Thundercat and King Princess, with U.S. dates kicking off on July 23 with a gig at Denver’s Empower Field at Mile High.
Tickets for the Live Nation-promoted tour — the band’s first world outing since the end of their 2016-2017 Getaway Tour — will go on sale to the general public beginning Oct. 15 at 10 a.m. local time here.
