Roundhouse Entertainment, in partnership with Live Nation, is thrilled to announce that Red Hot Chili Peppers will make a long-overdue and highly anticipated return to Australia next year.

Playing their first Australian headline tour in 12 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. The tour will also include a one-off A Day On The Green concert.

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—followed by arena, stadium and outdoor shows around the country.

"We can’t wait to see all our fans in Australia and New Zealand—it has been too long. The fact that we get to play in Tassie for the first time makes this tour even more special." - Red Hot Chili Peppers

The band is expected to play a set comprising a selection of tracks such as Dark Necessities lifted from their current and 11th studio album, The Getaway (which spent two weeks at number one 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'.

Five years after the release of 'I’m With You', which hit number one in 18 countries, 'The Getaway' (through Warner Music Australia) is the band’s sixth ARIA number one album.

It follows the footsteps of earlier number ones: 'Stadium Arcadium' (2006), 'By The Way' (2002), 'Californication' (1999), 'One Hot Minute' (1995) and one of the biggest albums of the '90s—'Blood Sugar Sex Magik' (1992)—which Rolling Stone rated in the top 20 of the "100 Best Albums of the '90s".

Composed of singer Anthony Kiedis, Melbourne-born bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, Red Hot Chili Peppers have sold over 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs, and won six Grammy Awards. 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'. 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.

Joining Red Hot Chili Peppers on their instantly sold out Australian 2019 tour will be the one and only Grandfather of Funk, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic.

Fans would be wise to secure their tickets early—this tour will be red hot!
