Red Hot Chili Peppers Announce Australia, New Zealand Tour Dates For 2023
Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced a 2023 tour of Australia and New Zealand with Post Malone on the bill as their special guest.
The Los Angeles band, known for their hits Under the Bridge, Knock Me Down, Give It Away and Californication will perform in major stadiums from January to February 2023. The tour will include performances in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Auckland and Dunedin.
The Peppers’ Melbourne born bassist, Flea, hinted earlier this year they would soon be touring Australia.
He told The Daily Telegraph at the time: “We’re definitely coming. We’re all booked up until the end of this year, so I don’t think we could get there this year.”
It has been four years since Post Malone last performed in Australia, and Red Hot Chili Peppers last toured Down Under in 2019. Flea, who owns a property in New South Wales, last visited for a holiday in December 2021.
Last month, Red Hot Chili Peppers shared a new track titled Nerve Flip. Originally a Japanese bonus release from their latest studio album Unlimited Love. The album guitarist John Frusciante return to the fold for the first time since 2006’s Stadium Arcadium, and it has gone on to become the best-selling rock album of 2022 so far. The band are currently performing the final dates on the European leg of their ‘Unlimited Love’ tour.
Post Malone, meanwhile, recently announced five additional dates to his ‘Twelve Carat Tour’, an extensive 38-show outing across North America with special guest Roddy Ricch.
