The Red Hot Chilli Peppers kick off the UK leg of their British tour tonight with three sold out shows at the O2 in London.
It’s in support of their 10th studio album I’m With You – which followed several years off and the induction of their new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer.
Frontman Anthony Kiedis told 6 Music getting back on the road “felt better than I could have expected.”
As for what we can expect from these arena shows, Anthony explained while the stage production isn’t the most important aspect for them, we can expect something pretty special.
“It looks like we stole Las Vegas and brought it on tour.”
Life on the road probably won’t be quite as wild as it once was now they are older and have more responsibility but they are certainly excited:
“I am really looking forward to the shows and being in different countries and showing my son the world, he is going to come out on tour with me.”
