Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced their first tour since guitarist John Frusciante returned to the group. They announced the tour in a silly video from the fictional news station KHOT. In the clip, Anthony Kiedis (as Johnson Hammerswaddle) and Flea (as Todd the Squirrel) welcome Frusciante, who reveals that the world tour starts in June 2022, with U.S. dates beginning the next month. Exact dates have not yet been revealed. Watch the video, also featuring drummer Chad Smith as weatherman Randy Raindrops, below.

Red Hot Chili Peppers announced Frusciante’s return in December 2019. A couple of months later, Frusciante performed with the band at a memorial concert for Andrew Burkle put on by the Tony Hawk Foundation.

Frusciante was a member of the Chili Peppers for their 1989 LP Mother’s Milk and 1991’s Blood Sugar Sex Magik. He left the group but returned in 1998, appearing on Californication, By the Way, and Stadium Arcadium before departing again in 2009.
