Cali-Tour-Na: Red Hot Chili Peppers announce North American dates, play TD Garden

 

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ incredible 1991 album Blood Sugar Sex Magik turns 25 years old on Saturday — part of an impressive lot of records celebrating anniversaries this month — and for better or worse, the California band is showing no signs of slowing down.

Earlier this summer they released their eleventh LP, called The Getaway, which included the not-terrible lead single “Dark Necessities”, and today announced they will kickstart 2017 with a full-blown North American tour.

That tour, which kicks off January 5 in San Antonio, comes to Boston’s TD Garden on February 7. Things wrap March 18 in Vancouver, and more live dates are expected to be announced, making 2017 a fairly busy time for Flea and company. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will provide support for all dates, including the Boston stop.

 

Tickets go on sale this weekend, and we’re told that “[e]very ticket purchased includes a choice of a standard physical or standard digital copy of The Getaway.”

Watch the video for “Dark Necessities”, and check out all the RHCP dates after the jump.
