Red Hot Chili Peppers are returning to the UK five years after their previous tour of the country.
The band are headlining Reading and Leeds this weekend, leaving fans in an exciting state of shock that they will also be embarking on a short trek of UK arenas as part of their current European tour. They’ll be stopping off at The O2 Arena in London between 5-6 December, The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on 8 December, the Genting Arena in Birmingham between 10-11 December and Manchester Arena between 14-15 December.
The Chili’s have recently released their 11th studio album The Getaway – you can read our review here – which was the first studio album since 2011’s I’m With You. The Getaway saw the Chili’s lead an advantageous return within the musical sphere; and a record of material that is going to be amazing to witness live.
Red Hot Chili Peppers have been a mainstay in the halls of alternative rock since their 1991 release Blood Sugar Sex Magik, and have continued to bring their infusion of funk, punk and alternative rock to the masses. Since their formation in 1983, the band have sold 80 million record worldwide, have been nominated for sixteen Grammy Awards, of which they have won six.
The band will also be joined by J-Pop/metal idols BABYMETAL, who have taken the world by storm. They are the perfect fit for a Chili’s tour, and are sure to win over Chili fans the instant they take to the stage.
