Chili Peppers postpone Charlotte show

Red Hot Chili Peppers this morning announced that they must postpone the start of their upcoming U.S. tour, which effectively will push back the date of its Charlotte concert (originally scheduled for Jan. 25).

Lead singer Anthony Kiedis has reportedly suffered "multiple foot injuries," and "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," according to the band's press release.

The Charlotte show at Time Warner Cable Arena is now scheduled for April 6. New dates for other affected Carolinas dates are as follows: RBC Center in Raleigh, April 4; Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, S.C., April 7; Greensboro Coliseum, April 9. reported today that Kiedis was spotted with a cast on his right foot at a Los Angeles Lakers game on Jan. 8. The cause of his injury isn't entirely clear.

Tickets to the postponed dates will be honored at the rescheduled dates. Tickets for the Charlotte concert are on sale now through,, the arena box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by calling 800-745-3000.

The band is touring in support of the current Grammy-nominated album "I'm With You." For updated tour information, visit

Thanks goodness. Who needs this white boy funk anyways.

The band is great until Keidis opens his mouth. Then it all goes down hill.

Guys just skip Charlotte. We dont care.

top 5 band from the 90's and there's really no questioning that. most would say top 2.

Agreed anonymous, the Chili Peppers Rock! I have tickets to Charlotte show, so dissappointed,yeah, but at least they are still coming! Just because you dont like their music and have pribably never heard their music unless on the radio, does not make you a critic of a band that has been touring for over twenty years! Yeah Anthony is an awful singer as their several grammy's, platinum albums etc have proven oh yeah still selling out stadiums, you are very well informed.....not! Ignorant....yep if you arent going dont like their music then why comment. I will let you know when justin Bieber is in town!
