Red Hot Chili Peppers - Red Hot Chili Peppers Delay Tour After Kiedis Suffers Foot Injury

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been forced to put back their forthcoming US tour in support of their 10th studio album 'I'm With You.' The much loved funk-rock band haven't shirked any touring responsibilities in the last year or so despite their members approaching 50 years of age, however a year spent touring Europe and South America last year with English group Foals in tow has wreaked havoc on vocalist Anthony Kiedis' foot. Now the 49 year-old has had to undergo surgery on it to remove the "crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon," according to the group's official website.
The official statement read, "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." What this means is that the tour, originally set to begin on January 20th in Florida, will now be pushed back to March 29th.
'I'm With You' was released late August of 2011 and went into the US Billboard Charts at Number Two as well as topping the charts in the UK, among other countries.
