Bro rock funk band the Red Hot Chili Peppers have launched a 2022 tour, which so far includes exactly one stop in Texas: at Globe Life Field in Arlington, on September 18.
The L.A. band is touring stadiums around the globe with a variety of opening acts that include The Strokes, A$AP Rocky, Beck, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Haim, Dallas native St. Vincent, Thundercat, and King Princess.
The Arlington show has the distinction of being the final stop on the tour. Yay us.
The last time they came through town was in January 2017 at American Airlines Center.
This tour marks the return of beloved guitarist John Frusciante to the group, and is also the band's first ever stadium tour in the U.S. They'll be performing new music from a forthcoming album, as well as old hits. They don't say anything about the album other than the fact that it includes Frusciante's presence.
Tickets go on sale Friday October 15 at 10 am local time at RedHotChiliPeppers.com. All seat levels and price tiers will be available.
There's also a fan presale that begins in the U.S. on Saturday October 9 at 10 am, and on Wednesday October 13 in Europe.
