It's no secret the Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline Tokyo and Osaka's Summer Sonic in August, but the even-better news is that the legendary Los Angeles funk-rock band are all but confirmed for Hong Kong. No, we don't know the venue, and, um, we don't have a date - but it's a fair bet they'll be playing one of the big arenas, likely AsiaWorld-Arena, in August on their way to or from Japan. A Hong Kong concert by the Chili Peppers (fronted by Anthony Kiedis, above) would not be before time. They were due to drop by in 1997, when they were scheduled to play the Convention and Exhibition Centre on the way back to the US after headlining Japan's Fuji Rock Festival. That show, incidentally, turned out to be the band's last outing with drummer Dave Navarro, who went on to join Jane's Addiction. However, they cancelled that tour, ostensibly to focus on a new album (though rampant drug use might also have had something to do with it). This new tour comes after the Chilis reignited their career after a three-year hiatus following the success of 2007's Stadium Arcadium, which won them five Grammys. Conveniently, the band's appearance in Hong Kong will come at about the same time as their new album - No 10 - is about to drop.
