American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers on Wednesday (26 Oct) has announced that they will be in Singapore for a concert in February next year.
In a Facebook post, they said they would perform on 16 February 2023, at the Singapore National Stadium where other artists such as BTS, Billie Eilish, and the Foo Fighters also held their performances.
The tickets, expected to be on sale in November, are priced at S$138, S$168, S$188, S$198, S$238, S$268, S$288, and S$328. The pre-sale on Paypal will begin at 10 am on 2 November til 11:59 pm on 3 November, while the Live Nation pre-sale will be at 10:00 am till 11:59 pm on 3 November, and the general sale tickets via Ticketmaster will be available on 4 November at 10 am.
Red Hot Chili Peppers’ last performance in Singapore was in 2019 at the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix, where they made headlines for their performance.
The band is known for its hit songs like Californication, Scar Tissue, Other Side, and Under the Bridge. Band members include Anthony Kiedis as the frontman, Flea as the bassist, John Frusciante as the guitarist, and Chad Smith as the drummer.
The band, also slated to do a tour in Australia and New Zealand has yet to announce if they’re going to other Asian countries.
Their latest album, Return of the Dream Canteen, was released earlier this month containing a total of 17 songs.
“‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ feels like a nod to the creative prosperity of a psychedelic desert. Something about the four of us wandering into a time and place that had less definition than normal lead to more music. We just kept sipping away,” they said on their official website.
“The canteen was generous. Just when a blubberously funky baseline seemed like it might lie dormant without a dance partner, its song fellows would show up to party. John’s tenacious focus on treating every song as though it was equal to the next helped us to realise more songs than some might know what to do with. In a world where a single track release is typical, we decided to release back to back double records. We feel good about it. Pass the canteen,” they added.
