Red Hot Chili Peppers Postpone Tour After Anthony Keidis Undergoes Surgery

Red Hot Chili Peppers were set to kick off their U.S. tour later this month but are now forced to push things back after frontman Anthony Keidis suffered a foot injury.

The Chili Peppers posted the bad news on their official website, stating that Keidis went under the knife for multiple foot injuries.

“Red Hot Chili Peppers regret to announce that they must postpone the start of their upcoming U.S. tour due to multiple foot injuries sustained by Anthony Kiedis. Anthony recently underwent surgery to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot and is expected to make a full recovery.

Tickets for the postponed dates will be honored at the rescheduled dates.”

The 23-date trek was supposed to start January 20 in Sunrise, FL (that’s a real city?) but will now begin March 29 in Tampa Bay, FL to give Keidis enough time to recover. The injury will not affect the band’s tour commitments in Europe this summer. Unfortunately there is still no Michigan date, but I have a feeling Red Hot Chili Peppers will stop by the mitten state this year.

Watch the video for their latest single “Monarchy of Roses”, below, which is off their album I’m With You.
