Flea and the remainder of the Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to end Australia‘s critical shortage of bass solos early next year, thanks to their first headline tour in over a decade.
Taking to arenas and wineries around the nation from February, Flea is expected to inundate the masses with the kind of slapped basslines the nation has so desperately craved. Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, and Josh Klinghoffer will be around, too.
The man born Michael Balzary – in Melbourne, no less – will lead the legendary funk-rock group on the following dates:
Sunday 17 February
Derwent Entertainment Centre
Tuesday 19 February
Qudos Bank Arena
Saturday 23 February
Monday 25 February
Brisbane Entertainment Centre
Thursday 28 February
Rod Laver Arena
Saturday 2 March
A Day On The Green at Duneed Estate
Sunday 3 March
Superloop Adelaide 500
Tuesday 5 March
It’ll be the group’s first jaunt down under since the release of their 2016 record The Getaway, and their first journey around the nation since appearing on the Big Day Out (RIP) lineup back in 2013.
They melted faces back then, largely due to the aforementioned low-frequency fuckery of Flea, and they’ll more than likely do it again on this go around.
Tickets go on sale on November 26, and if you’re keen for more details, you can scope them out HERE.
