Red Hot Chili Peppers postpone this week's Dublin gigs

The band cited illness as the reason for rescheduling

Red Hot Chili Peppers have postponed both of their upcoming 3Arena, due to take place tomorrow and Wednesday.

A statement from the band read “We are so sorry that we cannot come to Dublin as planned for the next few days.  Anthony has been fighting off the flu all week and after the show last night it was clear that he has to stop touring and recover, hence the decision to push back the shows to next year.”

Both shows have been rescheduled to September 20th and 21st 2017 with tickets valid for the new dates as below. Tickets for Tuesday 20th December will be valid for Wednesday 20th September. Tickets for Wednesday 21st December will be valid for Thursday 21st September.

The band last played Ireland in 2012, performing at Croke Park for one night only.
