With The Roots and King Princess supporting, Red Hot Chili Peppers are ending their phenomenal 2023 world tour in London and Glasgow next July.


The band, composed of vocalist Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist John Frusciante, start their world tour in California next year, before then heading to New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Mexico, Canada, America and finally Europe. The European dates begin in The Netherlands and end in Glasgow.

The Glasgow date is actually a rescheduled 2022 show which was postponed due to illness, and will now take place at Hampden Park. The London date will be at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, home of the Premier League football club.

If you’re a fan of Red Hot Chili Peppers, you’ll know the band has had a turbulent time (to say the very least) since their formation in 1983. The original line-up was made up of Kiedis, Flea, guitarist Hillel Slovak and drummer Jack Irons. Following Slovak’s tragic death in 1988 and Irons's departure, Smith and Frusciante joined the band.

Frusciante left the Red Hot Chili Peppers at various points from 1989 to 2019 (when he rejoined — hopefully — for good). He was with the band for their first major commercial success - the 1991 album Blood Sugar Sex Magik - as well as their seventh album Californication, which sold 16 million copies worldwide, and the widely successful By the Way and Stadium Arcadium albums.

Red Hot Chili Peppers have produced singalong classics like Can’t Stop, Dani California, and Dark Necessities, as well as more emotional tracks like Scar Tissue, Under the Bridge, and Snow (Hey Oh), which have been the soundtrack to many a dramatic looking-out-the-car-window journey.

The Los Angeles band hold the records for the most number one singles (14), the most cumulative weeks at number one (85), and the most top 10 songs (25) on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart.

Red Hot Chili Peppers have also won six Grammy Awards, have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as of this year. They’re kind of a big deal, you know!
