Second Red Hot Chili Peppers show added

Nothing like “overwhelming demand” to put the wind in your sails – the Red Hot Chili Peppers turn out to be so huge in Edmonton that a second show has been added on Thursday, Nov. 22 at Rexall Place. The first on Nov. 21 has sold out.

Minus John Frusciante, the legendary Californicating band is touring behind its latest, Grammy-nominated album, I’m With You, and riding high as a fresh inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Isn’t there some sort of frosh initiation ritual here?

Tickets for the new show are $39.50 or $69.50 and will go on sale Friday, May 4 at 10 a.m., with “pre-sale” starting May 2.
