LEGENDARY rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers have today announced their return to Australia for four massive stadium shows in early 2023 . . . with Thursday 2 February locked in at Accor Stadium in Sydney Olympic Park.
General Public tickets will go on sale for the Accor Stadium show on Monday 11 July at 2pm, with pre-sales commencing this Wednesday (see below for full details).
Red Hot Chili Peppers commenced their global stadium tour last month in Spain following the release of acclaimed new album Unlimited Love, with stops in London, Paris, Dublin, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and many more. The tour marks the return of guitarist and all-round cosmic musician John Frusciante to the group, as they perform their career-spanning hits alongside tracks from their new album.
Joining Red Hot Chili Peppers on their Australian tour is multi-platinum selling superstar Post Malone.
Among the best-selling music artists globally with over 80 million records sold across four career albums, Stoney (2016), Beerbongs & Bentleys (2018), Hollywood’s Bleeding (2019) and Twelve Carat Toothache (2022), Malone has won 10 Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, one MTV Video Music Award, and has received six Grammy Award nominations. He holds several Billboard chart records: he is the first solo artist to top the Rap Airplay and Adult Contemporary charts, while Circles set the record for longest climb to number one (41 weeks) on the Adult Contemporary chart by a solo artist. His current single I Like You (A Happier Song) featuring Doja Cat is tearing up the Australian airplay and ARIA singles chart.
The tour will commence in Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium on 29 January before heading to Accor Stadium on February 2, followed by Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium on 7 February and concluding in Perth at Optus Stadium on 12 February.
Red Hot Chili Peppers have sound tracked successive generations as not only one of the bestselling acts in music history, but also one of the biggest streaming rock bands in the world today. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame® in 2012, the award-winning Los Angeles quartet—Anthony Kiedis [vocals], Flea [bass], Chad Smith [drums], and John Frusciante [guitar]—have collected 6 GRAMMY® Awards, sold 80 million albums, generated 5 billion YouTube views, and gathered 22 billion Spotify streams, averaging 21 million monthly listeners on the platform.
Rolling Stone cited Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Californication, and By The Way on its coveted “500 Greatest Albums of All Time,” while “Under the Bridge” landed on the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” in 2021. In addition to claiming a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, 8 MTV VMAs, 5 EMAs, 4 American Music Awards, and 3 BRIT Awards, they’ve notably notched the most #1 singles of all time at Alternative Radio with 13 #1 hits. They’ve also performed to tens of millions worldwide, headlined Coachella and became the only band ever to sell out three nights at Hyde Park in London—moving over 200,000 tickets. Adorned by anthems such as “Give It Away,” “Under the Bridge,” and “Breaking the Girl,” the diamond-certified Blood Sugar Sex Magik celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021.
In April Red Hot Chili Peppers unveiled their new album and twelfth full-length offering, Unlimited Love [Warner Records], their first recording with guitarist John Frusciante since 2006 and first with producer and longtime collaborator Rick Rubin since 2011. Their creative collaboration with Rubin spans legendary albums, including Blood Sugar Sex Magik , Californication , By The Way , and Stadium Arcadium .
Now the band’s seminal lineup returns with their new studio album, Unlimited Love and a record-breaking Global Stadium Tour, kicking-off a brand new generation of fans for the legendary group.
