Been spinning Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ latest record Unlimited Love (our review here) non-stop since it came out a few months ago? The Cali-funk quartet will be bringing some of their monster new singles like ‘Black Summer‘ and ‘Poster Child‘ with them on another one of their massive Australian tours. In January and February next year, the Peppers will be playing stadiums in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth – sorry Adelaide and others. They’ll also be dropping into Auckland and Dunedin for a couple of New Zealand shows beforehand.
The tour downunder will be their first post-pandemic return to our shores, and the first in four years after their visit with George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. Of course, there’s another reason this will be a special tour for Aussie fans, and that is that it’ll be the first time seeing John Frusciante back in the band after his return on Unlimited Love. In true Chili Peppers‘ style, they’re bringing with them a very special guest, this time less in the rock/metal realm, but an act that definitely resonates with the heavier side of music – Post Malone. The global sensation support act will be playing hits from his latest record Twelve Carat Toothache.
Whether Posty’s latest album is your bag, or whether you’re exclusively rock and roll, you’ll probably want to set some alarms for this one as it’ll be set to sell-out quick-smart. All the links and bookmarkable stuff below.
