Red Hot Chili Peppers

Funk-rock legends the Red Hot Chili Peppers will play four nights at Earl's Court in mid-July. The band is touring Europe in support of the upcoming release of its 9th studio album, Stadium Arcadium. The double album is said to revisit the band's funk, punk, psychedelic, and metal roots. Last year the band released their first ever live album, Live in Hyde Park, which was recorded during their 2004 London performance. The concert became one of the most profitable single event concerts by a single band in history.- Pat Allegri
