Red Hot Chili Peppers Postpone 2012 U.S. Tour Due To Injury

Red Hot Chili Peppers have been forced to push back all the dates on their 2012 U.S. tour after singer Anthony Kiedis underwent surgery to mend a recently sustained injury.

Red Hot Chili Peppers were in line to kick off their U.S. tour in support of their latest album ‘I’m With You’ later this month, that was until Anthony Kiedis injured his foot recently. Now, contrary to what the album’s title would indicate, it may be quite some time before the Chili Peppers are “with you.”

The RHCP vocalist was forced to go under the knife to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot. While Kiedis is expected to make a full recovery, the operation will cause a substantial delay in their upcoming tour. While some shows are being delayed just two months, others will take place eight months later than the initially scheduled date.
