Red Hot Chili Peppers postpone NC shows

Posted January 11, 2012

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have postponed the start of their upcoming North American tour after lead singer Anthony Kiedis injured his foot, concert promoter Live Nation said Wednesday.

Kiedis recently underwent surgery to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot. He is expected to make a full recovery.

The band was supposed to perform at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte on Jan. 25, the RBC Center in Raleigh on Jan. 27 and the Greensboro Coliseum on Jan. 31.

The Raleigh show has been rescheduled for April 4. The Peppers will play Charlotte on April 6 and Greensboro on April 9. 

Tickets for postponed dates will be honored at the rescheduled dates. Tickets are on sale now through Live Nation and at the venue box offices.

    tickets were 35-55$ when they went on sale. The evil scalpers buy all of them up til the show is sold out, than they go on craigs list and sell them for $150-300 each. I wish I could meet these scalpers and .................$%$%#$^#$^3

    Bummer that they cost SO much. This will be the first time in 20 years that they travel to NC when we won't be in the audience. Boo, hiss on outrageous ticket pricing.
