The Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced a 2022 stadium tour, although dates and cities have not been announced yet.
The trek notably is to include longtime guitarist John Frusciante, with the announcement promising “the boys are firing on all cylinders, their hearts are full and they’re fixing to unleash an infinite river of creativity, and rock your world.”
While public details are scarce, the tour is being produced by Live Nation, is said to be kicking off in June 2022, and will be “global.”

“The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been around, and have not just fallen off the turnip truck, but to a man, they have never been more thrilled, bursting with commitment and purpose, as they are regarding this upcoming tour. They have no interest in resting on past accolades, awards or commercial success, this is a mission, they intend to channel the most mighty spirits, and give everything they’ve got.”
The band, known for its energetic shows and larger-than-life personalities in musicians in charismatic frontman Anthony Keidis, uniquely funky bassist Flea, the influentially creative Frusciante and noted Will Ferrell lookalike drummer Chad Smith, is responsible for a bevy of hits dating to the late 80s, including “Give It Away Now,” “Under The Bridge,” “Californication’ and many others. 
Although Frusciante re-joined RHCP in 2019 and performed with the band, this will be the first full-scale tour to include the guitarist in quite a while. The band’s last major tour was the 2016-2017 “Getaway” world tour, which grossed $73.5 million in 2017 and $46.2 million in 2016 according to Pollstar’s Year End totals.
