The group released their 11th studio album on June 17. The album’s first single, “Dark Necessities,” became the band’s 13th No. 1 single on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. The band has already been touring throughout Europe but the North American leg of the tour will be their first North American tour since 2014.
Earlier this year, lead singer Anthony Kiedis suffered a health scare and was forced to cancel one of the band’s shows after complications from intestinal flu. “I’d rather play deathly ill than not play at all but in this particular instance, I was starting to go down, as into the ground, so I got rushed to the hospital, got some help, and now I get to figure things out,” he told ET Canada.
