As they head into the new year with two new album releases under their belts - 2022's Unlimited Love and Return of the Dream Canteen - the Red Hot Chili Peppers appear to be set on making 2023 just as productive with the announcement of a 23- date world tour.

The trek will kick off on March 29 at BC Place in Vancouver, BC, and will see the Californian funk rockers' play stadium shows and festivals across North America and Europe. 

They'll be making stops in Las Vegas, San Diego, Houston, Lisbon, Madrid, Vienna and more before signing off on the tour with a show at Glasgow's Hampden Park on July 23. 

Supporting the band on the road for various dates are a long-list of special guests, including The Strokes, Iggy Pop, The Roots, The Mars Volta, St. Vincent, City and Colour, Thundercat, and King Princess.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, December 9 at 10am local time from Live Nation: those seeking to attend the UK dates should visit Ticketmaster.

On top of their two new albums, featuring newly-returned guitarist John Frusciante, the Red Hot Chili Peppers recently took home the Global Icon Award at the MTV VMAs. Black Summer also won the award for Best Rock Video, and they scored three American Music Awards nominations for Favourite Rock Artist, Favourite Rock Album for Unlimited Love and Favourite Rock Single for Black Summer.
