Red Hot Chili Peppers, have announced an upcoming show in the pyramids of Egypt! The funksters confirmed that the landmark show will take place March 15th, following the Chili Peppers upcoming Australia/New Zealand tour.
It doesn’t look like the band will have any new music from their anticipated twelfth album out by then. Speaking on to Sirius XM’s Volume West Drummer Chad Smith explained that progress on the follow-up to 2016’s The Getaway was held up by the terrible Woolsey Fire this autumn which destroyed more than 1,500 homes and buildings in southern California and killed four people.
Chad Smith explained,
“We started to work on [the new album], which, for us, is just getting in a room and making some noise and putting some notes together,” said Smith. “And then the fires came, and the house we were working in, there was no damage, it didn’t burn down, but we couldn’t get back in there. So that halted our [progress].”
Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, January 18th, at 8 a.m. local time. Check out the poster and a promo video at the bottom of this post.
