Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the most successful acts in rock history, often performing in front of stadium and festival audiences in excess of 100,000. The Australian tour will start with a rare intimate show at Hobart’s Derwent Entertainment Centre – the first time the LA-based band will have travelled to Tasmania – before heading to arenas in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne; open air shows at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley and at A Day on The Green at Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong, before their final Australian show at Perth’s NIB Stadium.
The Peppers will also headline the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500 post-race concert on March 3.
The band is expected to play a set comprising of a selection of tracks such as ‘Dark Necessities’ lifted from their current and eleventh studio album, The Getaway (which spent two weeks at #1 on the ARIA Chart), plus greatest hits and classic album tracks such as: ‘By the Way’, ‘Can’t Stop’, ‘Snow (Hey Oh)’, ‘Otherside’, ‘Californication’, ‘Under The Bridge’ and ‘Give It Away’.
“We can’t wait to see all our fans in Australia and New Zealand – it has been too long.
The fact that we get to play in Tassie for the first time makes this tour even more special”.
– Red Hot Chili Peppers
Five years after the release of I’m With You which hit #1 in 18 countries, The Getaway (through Warner Music Australia) is the band’s sixth ARIA #1 album. It follows in the footsteps of earlier #1s: Stadium Arcadium (2006), By The Way (2002), Californication (1999), One Hot Minute (1995) and one of the biggest albums of the ’90s – Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1992) – which Rolling Stone rated in the top 20 of the “100 Best Albums of the ’90s”.
Red Hot Chili Peppers – singer Anthony Kiedis, Melbourne-born bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer – have won six Grammy Awards and sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs. These include “Best Rock Album” for Stadium Arcadium, “Best Rock Performance By a Duo or Group” for ‘Dani California’, “Best Rock Song” for ‘Scar Tissue’, and “Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocal” for ‘Give It Away’.
The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2012.
Red Hot Chili Peppers last played a headline tour of Australia in April 2007, performing nine sold-out shows to a total attendance in excess of 140,000. The band last returned to Australia to headline at Big Day Out 2013.
