After their massive 2022 stadium tour, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have decided to head back to the road and do it all over again next year.
The legendary So-Cal rockers just announced they will play ten North American shows from March 29 through May 25.
On the run, they’ll hit stadiums they didn’t get around to in 2022 like Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, Syracuse’s JMA Wireless Dome and Houston’s Minute Maid Park.
Plus, they won’t be coming to these mega venues alone.
At each show, RHCP has enlisted the talents of some of the biggest, most exciting names in music to serve as support acts.
We’re talking Iggy Pop, The Strokes, St. Vincent, Mars Volta, The Roots and more.
And if you’re so excited that you can’t wait until tickets officially go on sale, you can snag those bad boys as early as today.
While inventory isn’t available on Ticketmaster until Friday, Dec. 9, folks who want to ensure they have tickets ahead of time can go ahead and purchase on Vivid Seats before seats are officially on sale.

Red Hot Chili Peppers opening acts
In the off chance you need a refresher on the big names joining Anthony Kiedis, Flea, John Frusciante and Chad Smith on tour, here’s a quick reminder to get back you back in the groove.
Iggy Pop has been around forever. The 75-year-old bad boy who came of age in the ’60s is now performing in his seventh decade and hasn’t lost a step along the way. We recommend starting with “Lust For Life” and “The Passenger” for newbies. It should be noted that Iggy Pop will only accompany the group on international tour dates.
The Strokes broke big in the early 2000s with their album “Is This It” and ruled the rock charts for most of the decade. Then, curiously, Julian Casablancas and co. broke up for most of the ’10s. Now, back together and with a 2020 Best Rock Album Grammy under their belt for “The New Abnormal,” the group is performing at the height of their powers.
The Roots are the rare group you may know better from TV than from their music. As the long-running house band for Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show,” the 12-member outfit has proven they’re just as gifted comedically as they are musically. Still, don’t sleep on their sonically sound hip-hop— they’ll leave you wishing they toured more. Sadly, The Roots will only be touring with RCHP overseas this time around.
St. Vincent is indie royalty. Active since 2003, the singer-guitarist has made a name for herself with her powerful rock and nimble vocals. We recommend listening to her entire catalogue but if that’s too tall an order, you can’t go wrong with “Los Ageless” and “The Strangers.”
Mars Volta doesn’t sound like anyone else. After a decade-long hiatus, Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala’s prog-rock outfit are back and just dropped their self-titled reunion album “The Mars Volta” this year. For the uninitiated, you’ll want to start with their wild, best-selling 2005 record “Frances The Mute” though.
King Princess just completed their 2022 “Hold On Baby Tour.” Although, they’re by far the youngest act on the bill, make sure you’re firmly planted in your seat during their set. Otherwise, you’ll miss what Pitchfork calls a “keen-eared musician coming into their own.”
Thundercat opened for RHCP on their last run. His colorful, space-y sound will surely set the tone for the Peppers’ fun loving ambiance once again. Not convinced? Sit back, put on your best headphones and check out the trippy “Them Changes” to get you into the groove.
City and Colour made their name with the mega single “The Girl.” A touch more melancholy than their fellow tour openers the group’s mellow, acoustic, folksy sound will serve as a nice counterpoint at all shows they perform at. Want more? Try the emotional “Comin’ Home” next.
Red Hot Chili Peppers new music
In 2022, the group that brought the world “Under the Bridge,” “Scar Tissue” and “Californication” delivered not one, but two albums.
The first, “Unlimited Love” was the group’s first release since 2016’s “The Getaway” and their first with Frusciante since 2006. Pitchfork faintly praised the album saying the Peppers “sound like no one but themselves.” It can be streamed here.
Their follow-up, “Return of the Dream Canteen,” received a similar response. Rolling Stone summed up their encore calling it “75 Minutes of Pretty Good Leftovers.” You can be the judge by listening to the 17-track record here.
