Red Hot Chili Peppers rescheduled their 2012 tour dates in North America.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been forced to reschedule their 2012 tour after frontman Anthony Kiedis injured his foot and underwent surgery to remove a “crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon.” Ouch…makes me cringe just reading it.

Tickets to the old dates will still be honored for the new shows. They’ll also be recording these performances for their tour archive, which we had mixed feelings about last month.

Below is their updated schedule, with the old dates listed before the rescheduled dates.

Old — New

01/20 — 04/02 – Sunrise, FL – Bank Atlantic Center*
01/21 — 03/31 – Orlando, FL – Amway Arena*
01/23 — 03/29 – St. Petersburg, FL – St. Pete Times Forum

Rodrigo y Gabriela will go back on the road to support their new album, Area 52, due out January 23rd, 2012. The album represents the first time the couple with the dueling guitars has enlisted the help of other musicians for their records – C.U.B.A., a 13-piece Cuban orchestra, features on the upcoming release. Says Rodrigo:

“The album is called Area 52 because we felt like Mulder and Scully approaching this—it was just a crazy idea, to see if a big Cuban band could play our music, a step in the dark. We knew it was out there, everyone has heard of Area 51, but we wanted to take it a little further.”

Rodrigo y Gabriela’s 2012 tour dates (buy tickets):

4/03 – Seattle, WA – The Paramount Theatre
4/04 – Portland, OR – Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

Van Halen Tour Dates 2012

It’s official, Van Halen and David Lee Roth will begin their 45-stop 2012 tour in support of their new album, A Different Kind of Truth,   on February 18th in Louisville, Kentucky. This the first album the duo have recorded since 1984, though they’ve toured together in 2007 and 2008. With Roth and Hagar reunited, the final missing link, bassist Michael Anthony, isn’t expected to return thanks to the prowess of his replacement , Wolfgang Van Halen, better known as Halen’s son. According to the press release, the group will play several new songs accompanied by favorable tunes like “Eruption,” “Running With the Devil,” “Hot for Teacher,” and more.

And if the combo of Halen and Roth didn’t get you hot and bothered enough, Kool & the Gang will be opening for the band on select dates. Now let’s get a celebration for partying like it’s the 80s all…
