Looks like the Red Hot Chili Peppers are tired of their Californication. Cause they’re headed to Las Vegas. The Los Angeles-based rock band just announced a massive North American tour. It will kick off in Vancouver in March of 2023 and include European destinations as well.
Pitchfork.com reported that the band has enlisted a large ensemble of supporting acts for the tour. Those acts include Iggy Pop, The Strokes, St. Vincent, King Princess and more. Two of the chosen supporting acts will be selected for any given show.
This tour was inevitable, as the Red Hot Chili Peppers released two albums this year alone. Unlimited Love was the band’s first album in six years. Followed shortly by Return of The Dream Canteen. Both albums feature John Frusciante, who rejoined the band in 2019.
Frusciante has left a few times since first joining the band around 1988. That was when he was a teenage prodigy on the guitar. He was a fan of the band at the time and brought a unique sound when he was added to the line-up. And both new albums promise to deliver exactly what fans would expect from the reunification of this group.
Las Vegas is the second stop on the Chili Peppers 2023 tour. They will be at Allegiant Stadium on Saturday, April 1. No, as far as we’re aware, this is not an April Fool’s joke. Right, Flea? Please don’t do us like that. Tickets go on sale on December 6th. Grab them here.
The supporting acts for the Las Vegas show will be St. Vincent, a three-time Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist. King Princess, also a singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, will be the other supporting act. Check out the list of songs below if you’re not familiar with either of these artist’s music.
So, what can we expect from this tour? Here are some of their songs from the latest two albums. And we likey a lot!
