Red Hot Chili Peppers are postponing the start of their U.S. tour so that frontman Anthony Kiedis can recover from foot surgery.
The singer went under the knife for multiple procedures recently: he had a crushed sesamoid bone removed and a flexor tendon in his foot treated. He is expected to make a full recovery.
The trek was due to kick off on Jan. 20 in Sunrise, Florida. That show has been moved to April 2. See the complete list of rescheduled dates on the band’s official site.
Earlier this week, Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith tweeted, “AK had surgery on Monday on his foot so he’s out for 8 weeks. Our sincere apologies for the inconvience. All US dates have been rescheduled.”
The band’s latest album, I’m With You, was released in August 2011.
