Red Hot Chili Peppers announce comeback gig

Band will end hiatus at Neil Young tribute show in January

Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced their first gig together since taking an extended break in 2008.

Playing MusiCares 2010 on January 29, the group will play alongside Wilco, Norah Jones and James Taylor to pay tribute to Neil Young.

Since the hiatus the individual members of the group have been concentrating on their own musical projects, with Flea joining Thom Yorke’s super-group being the most eye-catching.

Meanwhile, drummer Chad Smith has recently said that the band are currently working on a follow-up to 2006’s ‘Stadium Arcadium’ album.
