Red Hot Chili Peppers Announce UK Tour
It's their first full British outing in five years...
The Red Hot Chili Peppershave announced they will tour the UK and Ireland in November.
It’s the Warpaint, who joined the line-up after John Frusciante left in 2009.
The tour, which includes three dates at London’s O2 Arena, will follow the release of the Chili’s 10th studio album, I’m With You, on 30 August.
The first single from the LP, The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie, was recently leaked online but bassist Flea told the BBC there weren’t too bothered by it. “The only thing that I would ever worry about would be if I was lazy or I didn't really take my time in the songwriting process to make the music as good as I thought it could be,” he explained.
"That's the only thing I ever fret about because I do have a lazy streak. Anything that happens once the music is done, come what may."
Tickets for the gigs go on sale on Friday 29 July at 9am.
