Red Hot Chili Peppers Announce Their First Aussie Headline Tour in Over a Decade

Next year, they'll be singing songs to you (but probably not beneath marquees).

It's been 12 years since the Red Hot Chili Peppers last made a headline tour of Australia. And they're finally on their way back down under. In February and March 2019, the LA-based rockers will play all over the country, including a one-off A Day on the Green and their first-ever show in Tassie.

To catch them on the Green, get yourself to Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong, on Saturday, March 2. You can expect to hear tunes from the Peppers' new (and eleventh) studio album, The Getaway, as well as old hits, like 'Californication', 'By The Way' and 'Under The Bridge'. Since making their first release — a self-titled EP — in 1984, the band has sold more than 60 million albums, won five Grammys and entered the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

Outside of its one-off A Day on the Green appearance — an Aussie-wide festival that is also playing host to our own Kyle Minogue — the Peppers will also be playing headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth and a smaller show out on Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley.

If you fancy a trip down south, or are maybe hanging around after Mona Foma, the Peppers are heading to Tasmania for the first time ever, to perform at a rare intimate show — with a capacity of just 1290.

Supports acts for all shows will be announced soon.


Tasmania — Derwent Entertainment Centre, February 17
Sydney — Qudos Bank Arena, February 19
Hunter Valley — Hope Estate, February 23
Brisbane — Brisbane Entertainment Centre, February 25
Melbourne — Rod Laver Arena, February 28
Geelong — A Day on the Green, Mt Duneed Estate, March 2
Perth — NIB Stadium, March 5

Pre-sale tickets for A Day on the Green will be released at 10am on Wednesday, November 22, with all other Live Nation pre-sales going live at midday on Thursday, November 23. All shows go on sale to the public at midday on Monday, November 26.
