Playing their first Australian headline tour in twelve long years, Red Hot Chili Peppers will bring their unique funk-rock sound and high-energy performances to Australia and New Zealand for arena and outdoor shows this coming February – March.
The band will play a second show at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on Wednesday, February 20.
Tickets for this final Sydney date – and all other shows – will be available from MIDDAY TODAY during the Live Nation members pre-sale.
Tickets for all shows will go on general sale at midday (local time) this Monday, November 26.
Fans are urged to secure their tickets early – this is shaping up to be one of the hottest tours of summer!
The Peppers will also headline the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500 post-race concert on March 3.
The band is expected to play a set comprising of a selection of tracks such as ‘Dark Necessities’ lifted from their current and eleventh studio album, The Getaway (which spent two weeks at #1 on the ARIA Chart), plus greatest hits and classic album tracks such as: ‘By the Way’, ‘Can’t Stop’, ‘Snow (Hey Oh)’, ‘Otherside’, ‘Californication’, ‘Under The Bridge’ and ‘Give It Away’.
The fact that we get to play in Tassie for the first time makes this tour even more special”.
