In what’s shaping up as one of the hottest tours of summer and following the earlier announcement of an extra Sydney show, a second and final Brisbane show has just been added due to overwhelming ticket demand during the pre-sale.
Red Hot Chili Peppers will play a second night at Brisbane Entertainment Centre on February 26.
Tickets for all shows, including this final Brisbane date, go on sale at midday today.
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”.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Red Hot Chili Peppers – singer Anthony Kiedis, Melbourne-born bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer – have won six Grammy Awards and sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs. These include “Best Rock Album” for Stadium Arcadium, “Best Rock Performance By a Duo or Group” for ‘Dani California’, “Best Rock Song” for ‘Scar Tissue’, and “Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocal” for ‘Give It Away’.
One of the most successful acts in rock history, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2012.
Red Hot Chili Peppers last played a headline tour of Australia in April 2007, performing nine sold-out shows to a total attendance in excess of 140,000. The band last returned to Australia to headline at Big Day Out 2013.
