The Red Hot Chili Peppers will be back on the road next year. The legendary band announced it will tour North America in the summer of 2024 and is bringing some famous friends for the journey.

RHCP is touring in support of their 2022 studio albums Unlimited Love and Return of the Dream Canteen. They will play a total of 16 shows, starting on May 28 in Ridgefield, Washington, and wrapping up the trip in St. Louis, Missouri, on July 30.

The band will be joined by various supporting acts for different shows, including iconic rapper Ice Cube and Grammy Award-winner Kid Cudi, as well as Ken Carson, IRONTOM, Otoboke Beaver, Seun Kuti, and Wand.

The tickets for the shows will be available for presale on December 6 with the use of code “RHCP24” and go on general sale two days later.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers initially started working on a new album, follow up to 2016’s The Getaway, with guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. However, unsatisfied with the progress, the band decided to say goodbye to Klinghoffer and bring back longtime member John Frusciante in 2019 after a decade of absence.

Sessions with Frusciante turned out to be so productive that they spanned enough material for two albums. Unlimited Love was released first in April 2022, and Return of the Dream Canteen followed six months later. 

RHCP started with the tour, their first in five years and first with Frusciante in 15 years, shortly after Unlimited Love came out. So far, the band has done two legs of North American dates and two legs of shows in Europe, alongside concerts in South America, Oceania, and Asia.
