[pullquote quote=”Red Hot Chili Peppers regret to announce that they must postpone the start of their upcoming U.S. tour.”]Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait just a little longer to see our guys play Staples Center.

The shows originally scheduled for February 26-27 will be postponed to August 11-12. In fact, the band has rescheduled a few dozen dates of their nearly sold-out U.S. tour.

What happened? Why the postponement?

From RedHotChiliPeppers.com:

Red Hot Chili Peppers regret to announce that they must postpone the start of their upcoming U.S. tour due to multiple foot injuries sustained by Anthony Kiedis. Anthony 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.

Tickets for the postponed dates will be honored at the rescheduled dates.
