Today, the Red Hot Chili Peppers announced they will play a show at The Great Pyramids in Giza, Egypt on March 15th, 2019. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 18th at 8 a.m. local time here.
In September of 1978, the Grateful Dead traveled to Egypt and played three shows at The Great Pyramids of Giza, cementing the venue as one of the most legendary in the world.
The Chili Peppers are gearing up for their only other scheduled performances of 2019, in Australia and New Zealand this February and March, in support of their 2016 studio album, The Getaway. The band’s drummer, Chad Smith, recently lent a helping hand as part of Will Farrell‘s “Best Night Of Your Life” benefit concert along with Jerry Seinfeld, Duff McKagan, and Brad Paisley at Hollywood’s Greek Theatre back in early October.
