Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced the dates and details for their 2022 world tour, which the band initially heralded last month with an absurdist announcement video.
In addition to the full list of dates, the new announcement includes the eclectic lineup of supporting acts set to join in at select tour stops including A$AP Rocky, Thundercat, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, HAIM, Beck, The Strokes, King Princess, and St. Vincent.
As promised, the tour will kick off in June with a run of shows in European cities followed by a July tour in the U.S. The 32-city global stadium tour, produced by Live Nation, will kick off on Saturday, June 4th at Estadio La Cartuja in Seville, Spain and continue with stops in London, Paris, Dublin, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and many more before wrapping up in Arlington, TX at Globe Life Field on September 18th. The tour is produced by Live Nation. Full tour dates and details are below.
The 2022 tour will mark the return of guitarist John Frusciante to the group, as well as the band’s first-ever stadium tour in the U.S.

[9/24/21] Red Hot Chili Peppers will head out on a world tour in 2022 with new/old guitarist John Frusciante, the band announced on Friday. The band revealed the world tour—RHCP’s first since officially reuniting with longtime guitarist John Frusciante in late 2019—with an absurdist faux-news bulletin via “KHOT News.”
In the Eric Andre-esque clip, argyle-clad anchors Johnson Hammerswaddle (Anthony Kiedis) and Todd the Squirrel (Flea) update viewers on hard-hitting stories like the Hollywood nose-picking scandal and the ever-fluctuating beer nuts market.
The soft-spoken Randy Raindrops (Chad Smith) pops in to add some sunshine before bringing in the show’s special guest, John Frusciante (as himself), for a “Global Conversation.” After the guitarist mentions that the band will play a world tour in June 2022, Hammerswaddle and Squirrel respond with manic excitement.
The quirky humor continues as Raindrops continues to interview Frusciante with Between Two Ferns-level awkward tension. After the full KHOT News team returns, Hammerswaddle signs off. “Give It Away” plays. Roll credits. Red Hot Chili Peppers World Tour 2022 is on.
Of note, whether by coincidence or clever scheduling, the announcement comes exactly thirty years to the day after the release of the band’s lauded 1991 album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik.
Although the announcement didn’t provide much in the way of details on the 2022 RHCP tour, it did reveal that the run will begin in June, with U.S. shows set to start in July. While we wait for info, however, this announcement clip is worth at least a few views. Watch the announcement video below and keep an eye on the band’s website for updates.
