The Red Hot Chili Peppers will return to Europe in 2016 with a brand-new album. The guys have sold more than 80 million records worldwide. They have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and won seven Grammies. No wonder fans have been eagerly anticipating the return of L.A.’s very own Red Hot Chili Peppers. Next year will see the release of their new album and their return to Roskilde in Denmark, nine years after their last visit and a full twenty years after their Roskilde Festival debut in 1996. The band also confirmed Dutch Pinkpop Festival, Nova Rock in Austria, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park in Germany and Open’er Festival in Poland.
Having formed in 1983, the band released a series of albums that quickly gained them a loyal audience. Their groundbreaking fusion of funk, hard-rock and hip hop eventually catapulted them onto the world stage with the release of their landmark Blood Sugar Sex Magik in 1991.
Loved for hits such as ‘Give It Away’, ‘Scar Tissue’, ‘Under the Bridge’ and ‘Californication’, the band is known as a both tight and acrobatic live act.
There have been persistent rumours about the return of RHCP for a long, long time. We’re thrilled that they finally turned out to be true. We’ve been told that they can’t wait to come back to play, living up to – and underlining – their status as a legendary rock act. We have great expectations and are looking forward to a show that will offer both new songs and all their hits.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are hard at work on their 11th studio album, their first since I’m With You from 2011. The band has enlisted super producer Danger Mouse for the new album, which will be released in 2016.
