Red Hot Chili Peppers

Live Nation is thrilled to announce that RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS will make a long-overdue and highly-anticipated return Down Under in 2019.

Event Calendar


Joining RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS on their instantly sold-out Australia 2019 tour will be the one and only Grandfather of Funk, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic.
By arrangement with the Byron Bay Bluesfest, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic will be very special guests at Red Hot Chili Peppers Australian shows this summer (**not appearing in Hobart).
Parliament Funkadelic mastermind, George Clinton’s greatest achievement has been his relentless dedication to funk, notably the unique and easily identifiable style affectionately called P-Funk.
Revolutionizing R&B during the ’70s, Clinton’s distinct sound experienced a resurgence by the end of the ’80s as a generation of rappers reared on P-Funk were beginning to name check him. Clinton has since been featured by or collaborated with numerous artists including Prince, Primal Scream, 2Pac, Outkast, Blackalicious, Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang Clan, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino. He is considered one of the most sampled artists ever.
The Chili Peppers’ love and respect for George Clinton goes back more than three decades with the P-Funk legend producing the band’s early funk period album, 1985’s Freaky Styley.
George Clinton will be saying a Funk-a-thon farewell to the land down under as he returns to play his last ever Australian tour this April. Together with Parliament Funkadelic, George Clinton will headline shows in the Enmore Theatre, Sydney on April 20 and The Forum, Melbourne on April 25 around his performance for the 30th Anniversary Bluesfest.
Live Nation has worked with Red Hot Chili Peppers’ production team in making it possible to release additional tickets for most shows.
A final 500 tickets will be released for all Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane shows, as well as 200 tickets in Hobart.
In Perth and at Hope Estate, Hunter Valley, there will also be a final release of general admission tickets.

Live Nation is thrilled to announce that RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS will make a long-overdue and highly-anticipated return Down Under in 2019.

Playing their first Australian headline tour in twelve long years, Red Hot Chili Peppers will bring their unique funk-rock sound and high-energy performances to Australia and New Zealand for arena and outdoor shows this coming February - March. Ticket pre-sales begin next week. 

After sold-out US and European tours during 2017 and 2018 the Peppers most recently undertook three massive headline shows at Lollapalooza South America.

The Peppers are one of the most successful acts in rock history, often performing in front of stadium and festival audiences in excess of 100,000. The Australian tour will start with a rare intimate show at Hobart’s Derwent Entertainment Centre - the first time the LA-based band will have travelled to Tasmania.

Following their one-off Tassie show, Red Hot Chili Peppers will play arenas in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne; open air shows at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley and at A Day on The Green at Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong, before their final Australian show at Perth’s NIB Stadium.

The band is expected to play a set comprising of a selection of tracks such as ‘Dark Necessities’ lifted from their current and eleventh studio album, The Getaway (which spent two weeks at #1 on the ARIA Chart), plus greatest hits and classic album tracks such as: ‘By the Way’, ‘Can’t Stop’, ‘Snow (Hey Oh)’, ‘Otherside’,  ‘Californication’, ‘Under The Bridge’ and ‘Give It Away’.

“We can’t wait to see all our fans in Australia and New Zealand - it has been too long. The fact that we get to play in Tassie for the first time makes this tour even more special”.
