Gig Information

Live Nation is thrilled to announce RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS will make a long-overdue and highly-anticipated return Down Under in 2019.

Playing their first headline tour in more than six years, Red Hot Chili Peppers will bring their unique, funk rock signature sound and high-energy performances to New Zealand (and Australia), performing at Spark Arena on Friday, March 8. Ticket pre-sales begin next week.

After sold-out US and European tours during 2017 and 2018 the Peppers most recently undertook three massive headline shows at Lollapalooza South America.

The Peppers are one of the most successful acts in rock history, often performing in front of stadium and festival audiences in excess of 100,000.

The band is expected to play a set comprising of a selection of tracks such as ‘Dark Necessities’ lifted from their current and eleventh studio album, The Getaway (which debuted at #1 on the RIANZ Chart), greatest hits and classic album tracks as such as: ‘By the Way’, ‘Can’t Stop’, ‘Snow (Hey Oh)’, ‘Otherside’, ‘Californication’, ‘Under The Bridge’ and ‘Give It Away’.

“We can’t wait to see all our fans in Australia and New Zealand - it has been too long.” Red Hot Chili Peppers


Five years after the release of I’m With You which hit #1 in 18 countries including New Zealand, The Getaway (through Warner Music New Zealand) is the band’s seventh RIANZ #1 album.


It follows in the footsteps of earlier #1s: Stadium Arcadium (2006), By The Way (2002), Californication (1999), One Hot Minute (1995) and arguably one of the biggest albums of the ’90s - Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1992) - which Rolling Stone rated in the top 20 of the “100 Best Albums of the ’90s”.


Red Hot Chili Peppers - singer Anthony Kiedis, Melbourne-born bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer - have sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs, and won six Grammy Awards.


These include "Best Rock Album" for Stadium Arcadium, "Best Rock Performance By a Duo or Group" for ‘Dani California’, "Best Rock Song" for ‘Scar Tissue’, and "Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocal" for ‘Give It Away’.


The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2012.


Red Hot Chili Peppers last played two sold-out headline shows in Auckland in January 2013.


Fans would be wise to secure their tickets early – this tour will be red hot.
