The news was shared in a spoof news conference shared on the band’s social channels, apparently from the fictional KHOT station. In the video, the station’s presenters (aka RHCP singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith) interview a withdrawn Frusciante about the prospect of the tour before chaos ensues around the studio.
“Might we expect you and the fellas to play live any time soon?” Flea asks Frusciante, to which he responds that the world tour will kick off in June 2022, before US dates begin in July.”
No dates have yet been announced for the tour, but eager fans are able to sign up to the band’s mailing list here to be notified when more details are available.
In an accompanying press release, the band elaborate, “With guitarist and all around cosmic musician John Frusciante back in the fold, the boys are firing on all cylinders, their hearts are full and they’re fixing to unleash an infinite river of creativity, and rock your world…
“The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been around, and have not just fallen off the turnip truck, but to a man, they have never been more thrilled, bursting with commitment and purpose, as they are regarding this upcoming tour. They have no interest in resting on past accolades, awards or commercial success, this is a mission, they intend to channel the most mighty spirits, and give everything they’ve got.”
The band recently confirmed that they have been working on new material with Frusciante.
