Last month, the band revealed that they would be heading out on the road next year for their first shows since guitarist John Frusciante rejoined the band in 2019 after a 10-year absence.
The news of the band’s live return was shared during a spoof news segment from the fictional KHOT station. In the video, the station’s presenters (aka RHCP singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith) interviewed Frusciante about the prospect of the tour.
The full list of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 2022 world tour dates have now been revealed via another tongue-in-cheek news conference. The tour starts in Europe in June next year, with UK dates set in Manchester, London and Glasgow as well as an Irish date in Dublin.
Tickets go on general sale from 10am next Friday (October 15) here, while fans can access a pre-sale from 10am tomorrow (October 8) by pre-ordering the band’s new album, set for release in 2022, here.

Earlier this year, Red Hot Chili Peppers revealed that they are currently at work on a new album with John Frusciante and that they’re “psyched” to have their old guitarist back in the fold.
Earlier this year the band sold their songwriting catalogue to Hipgnosis, joining an extensive list of artists who have recently signed over their intellectual property in multi-million dollar deals.
The deal, which Billboard reports may not have closed yet, is worth at least £100million ($140million) and is likely to include their hit tracks ‘Snow (Hey Oh)’, ‘Californication’, ‘Otherside’, ‘Can’t Stop’ and ‘Give It Away’, among others.
