If you have tickets for the sold-out Red Hot Chili Peppers show at the Gwinnett Arena on Jan. 30, you’ll have to wait a bit longer to get your “Californication” fix.

The funk-powered rockers have rescheduled much of their upcoming tour after frontman Anthony Kiedis injured his foot. The statement from the band’s representatives reads:

“Red Hot Chili Peppers regret to announce that they must postpone the start of their upcoming U.S. tour due to multiple foot injuries sustained by lead singer Anthony Kiedis. Kiedis recently underwent surgery to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot and is expected to make a full recovery.”

And, of course, tickets for the original date will be honored at the rescheduled show. The tour is in support of the band’s current Grammy-nominated album “I’m With You.”

You sure you don’t mean a hip replacement? He is at least 50 years old.

AHHAHAHAHAHAHAH LOL LOL LOL! GOOD! I HOPE THEY CANCEL IT COMPLETELY! For all the ticket hoarders and brokers that bought up the tickets to this show within minutes of it opening you can all go F yourselves! I hope they cancel it completely and cancel the entire tour. Until bands take it upon themselves to make sure their FANS can get tickets and not BROKERS and SCAMMERS we shouldnt support them!

GOOD!

I’m just a fan. I logged on to Project 9-6-1 when the tickets went on presale to anyone who bothered to type in the password that was on the screen. It took me a few tries, but I got two tickets downstairs for the regular price plus ticketscrew fees.
Don’t whine if you didn’t try!

Reading comprehension is obviously not one of “Not sure”’s strong points…

My first Chili Pepper show was in 1986 in Athens and they were hot. I have seen them many times. I turned my wife onto them several years ago and now my 16 year old daughter likes them. When we tried to buy tickets for a family outing they sold out in minutes. Concerts are a pain these days. I could never imagine going to a concert with my parents.

Hey ACE – these guys have gotten it right for 20 years. If by “matter” you mean trendy, then u must have Katie Perry and other one/two hit wonders in your ipod.

I think Adam is absolutely correct “They suck live {sic} and sound nothing like their music.” Precisely why I would NEVER waste my hard-earned money on this group.

I would much rather stay home and listen to a John Frusciante cd or a bootleg of his concerts.

Oh i tried and like 99% of FANS, i got screwed by the brokers. I am over fighting the battle with the groids that hoard these tickets. They are great live but I really hope a revolution starts with bands putting a stop to the scammers and fees that go into seeing them, not to mention the inability for true FANS to get tickets when they go on sale. Total BS!

98% of you who wrote on this are dumb as dirt. A) alomst all of their shows are sold out B) if you were true fans you would have gotten off your fat ass and gotten yourself a ticket instead of letting the brokers get all of them and C) if you don’t like then band then F OFF!!!! no one cares about what you have to say anyways you ignorant pricks, maybe go try and get a life… DAMN!!!! they are one of the greatest bands still around, if not the best, and they have been doin it for 30 years!! They have been influences on sooooooo many bands today.

BSSM is one of the best albums ever in terms of songwriting and production. They’ve gone a little too pop for my taste since then though.

ACE and Adam – I went to their last tour (2006?) because my girlfriend at the time loved them. I had just been severely let down by how stale U2 is live nowadays (havign seen them again in 2005) and was worried this was just going to be an exercise in depression, having to sit through yet another show of a band who’s been doing it “too long” and is just going through the motions. U2 was a huge heartbreak when I saw them in 2005 after seeing them in ‘92, and I was prepared to be dulled and crushed yet again by the RHCP’s. Man was I floored though. They brought energy and infectiousness that blew me away. Of course a lot of it may have been attributed to the chemistry Frusciante added, but my faith in established bands being able to remain true and still kill it after so many years was restored. It was further cemented just last September after finally having been able to catch Hum live again in Chicago (a band that hasn’t played together regularly in 10+ years at that yet still rock everytime they play their one-offs), but that’s another story.
