Legendary rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers return to New Zealand 2023. The band will perform at Mt Smart Stadium on 21 January before heading south to Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium on 26 January.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers commenced their global stadium tour last month in Spain following the release of acclaimed new album Unlimited Love, with stops in London, Paris, Dublin, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and many more.
The tour marks the return of guitarist and all-round cosmic musician John Frusciante to the group, as they perform their career-spanning hits alongside tracks from their new album.
Joining the New Zealand tour is multiplatinum selling superstar Post Malone. Among the best-selling music artists globally with over 80 million records sold across four career albums, Stoney (2016), Beerbongs & Bentleys (2018), Hollywood's Bleeding (2019) and Twelve Carat Toothache (2022), Malone has won 10 Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, one MTV Video Music Award, and has received six Grammy Award nominations.
He holds several Billboard chart records: he is the first solo artist to top the Rap Airplay and Adult Contemporary charts, while Circles set the record for longest climb to number one (41 weeks) on the Adult Contemporary chart by a solo artist. His current single I Like You (A Happier Song) featuring Doja Cat is tearing up the New Zealand airplay and NZ Music singles chart.
