Red Hot Chili Peppers have revealed the full details of the 2022 world tour they first announced two weeks ago.

The California funk-rock specialists will first be traversing western European stadiums from early June through mid-July, before heading to North America in late July, where they'll do an even larger run of stadium dates until mid-September. 

It's the band's first tour with electric guitar player John Frusciante since 2007, and on it, they promise to play – in addition to their many hits – "new music from their forthcoming album," according to the press release announcing the tour. Now, that's an exciting tease!

Just as they did with the tour's announcement, the band got dressed up in their finest anchor costumes to break the news – in their own, typically irreverent way – on their own "KHOT News Room."

For the dates, the quartet will be joined by an impressive carousel of openers – The Strokes, A$AP Rocky, Beck, HAIM, St. Vincent, and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals.

Tickets for the shows go on sale to the general public next Friday, October 15, at 10 a.m. local time, while fan presale begins Saturday, October 9 at 10 a.m. local time in North America, and Wednesday, October 13 at 10 a.m. local time in Europe. You can check out the full list of shows – with their corresponding openers – below.

At the Red Hot Chili Peppers' website, fans can also – starting Friday, October 8 at 10 a.m. EST – get early access to tickets by pre-ordering a copy of the band's forthcoming album, which is set for release in 2022.
