Rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced plans to perform in Israel in 2023, after the band’s planned June 2020 and then June 2021 concerts were postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Promoters Shuki Weiss and Live Nation Israel said the exact concert date would be announced after the band’s 2023 touring schedule is set.
The American band, known for its mix of rock, funk and punk rock, is starting a world tour in 2022 that will continue for two years. Tickets are already on sale in North America, with tickets for the United Kingdom and European Union going on sale starting Wednesday.
Tickets purchased for the 2020 concert will be honored for the new concert date, and can also be refunded, according to Weiss.
The band was last in Israel in 2012, when it played to a crowd of 50,000 in Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon.
