Good news just in – Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that they will embark on a global stadium tour in 2022!
The band delivered the announcement in the form of a hilarious fake news parody on the KHOT channel. The bit sees Anchors Johnson Hammerswaddle, Todd The Squirrel and Randy Raindrops — a.k.a. Anthony Kiedis, Flea and Chad Smith –interview returning guitarist John Frusciante to confirm RHCP will be touring "the whole world”, starting June next year.
A press release adds: “With guitarist John Frusciante back in the fold, the boys are firing on all cylinders, their hearts are full and they're fixing to unleash an infinite river of creativity, and rock your world.”
"The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been around, and have not just fallen off the turnip truck, but to a man, they have never been more thrilled, bursting with commitment and purpose, as they are regarding this upcoming tour. They have no interest in resting on past accolades, awards or commercial success, this is a mission, they intend to channel the most mighty spirits, and give everything they've got."
