Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced a 2022 stadium tour with John Frusciante in a news cast spoof video. A press release states, “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 band is grateful to be working with event producers Live Nation in this endeavor.
“All the tour dates, sales information, support acts and other factoids will be available shortly.
“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.”
Frusciante last toured with Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2007. RHCP fired Josh Klinghoffer to bring back Frusciante in 2019, and the band played a private memorial gig without Chad Smith in February 2020, Frusciante’s first live performance in a decade. RHCP have a new album coming with producer Rick Rubin.
