The Red Hot Chili Peppers will hit the road in 2022 for a tour of the North American summer stadiums. The coast-to-coast hike will celebrate – a year later, due to the coronavirus pandemic – the 30th anniversary of the Los Angeles band’s 1991 album, “Blood Sugar Sex Magik.”
The 19-city tour opens with a date July 23 at Denver’s Empower Field in Mile High, followed by a July 27 show at Petco Park in San Diego with Haim and Thundercat opening act. The four-piece group will give two more Californian concerts: July 29 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara and July 31 at So-Fi Stadium in Los Angeles.
Ticket information and a list of all concert dates and cities appear at the end of this article. The North American leg will be preceded by a tour of European stadiums that will open on June 4 in Seville, Spain, and end on July 12 in Hamburg, Germany,
The tour, produced by Live Nation, was originally scheduled for 2020. Former Peppers guitarist John Frusciante is back on board replacing Josh Klinghoffer. Frusciante joined the group in 1988 and left it in 1991. He joined in 1998 for a second stint which lasted until 2009, then joined again in early 2020.
Frusciante is one of seven guitarists who played in the 38-year-old group, which was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
The rest of the Red Hot Chili Peppers roster has remained unchanged: vocalist Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith.
