The Red Hot Chili Peppers recently announced a huge 2022 tour with an amusing news broadcast send-up — and now, finally, the dates for the outing have been officially revealed.

The 32-city, global stadium tour comes with special anticipation, considering they will mark the iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band’s first live performances since guitarist John Frusciante rejoined the mix in December 2019 (as their planned 2020 gigs didn’t happen due to the pandemic).

As such, this is a massive outdoor venue/stadium tour featuring an array of special guests, including Beck, Thundercat, Haim, The Strokes and King Princess. Tickets go on sale to the public beginning on Oct. 15.

The tour is sponsored by Live Nation, and also came with this teaser:

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 most recent RHCP record involving Frusciante was 2006’s sprawling double-album Stadium Arcadium, as Frusciante dipped out a few years after its release, with Klinghoffer taking over and contributing to the band’s next few records up through The Getaway in 2016.

The send-off to the band’s news announcement of the tour included this:

FROM ALL OF US HERE AT KHOT, HAVE A PLEASANT TONIGHT, AND WE’LL SEE YOU TOMORROW

… which may very well hint at further news coming soon … like a new album, maybe? Stay tuned.
