Live Nation is thrilled to announce that RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS will make a long-overdue and highly-anticipated return Down Under in 2019.
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. Ticket pre-sales begin next week.
After sold-out US and European tours during 2017 and 2018, the Peppers most recently undertook three massive headline shows at Lollapalooza South America.
The Peppers are one of the most successful acts in rock history, often performing in front of stadium and festival audiences in excess of 100,000. The Australian tour will start with a rare intimate show at Hobart’s Derwent Entertainment Centre – the first time the LA-based band will have travelled to Tasmania.
Following their one-off Tassie show, Red Hot Chili Peppers will play arenas in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne; open air shows at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley and at A Day on The Green at Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong, before their final Australian show at Perth’s NIB Stadium.
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’.
