If you didn't get a chance to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers at one of the many festivals they headlined this summer, 2017 will be the next best time to catch them live. This morning, the band announced a 24-date North American leg for The Getaway Tour. The trek will launch on January 5th at San Antonio's AT&T Center and will wrap up on March 18th in Vancouver.
A pre-sale for tickets to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers will begin Wednesday, September 21st at 10 a.m. local time. A general on-sale will follow on Friday, September 23rd. Every ticket purchased for the upcoming tour will also be accompanied with either a digital or physical copy of the band's eleventh studio album, The Getaway, which they released on June 17. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will serve as opening act for the entirety of the leg, as well as Jack Irons, the band's former drummer.
Given the band's busy and hugely successful year, tickets for their upcoming run are already pushing high price points on the resale market. RHCP have headlined a handful of major U.S. festivals this year, including the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in April, Rock on The Range in Columbus Ohio on May 22, BottleRock in Napa Valley on May 29, Chicago's Lollapalooza on July 30, as well as a handful of international festivals across the globe. With the new album to boot, it's likely that the band's upcoming 2017 trek will push some of the more expensive tickets they've seen in recent years.
