Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis has been felled by a case of bronchial pneumonia, according to NME. The singer's doctor has ordered him not to fly for 10 days, forcing the band to cancel two Japanese stadium shows in Osaka and Tokyo on March 22nd and 23rd. The band plans to reschedule the dates as part of a larger world tour likely to take place this fall. A message at the official Chili Peppers web site offered the band's "deepest apologies" to Japanese fans.

The Chili Peppers' next U.S. show will be at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 28th in Indio, California.

The band has invited fans to create a video for the band's next single, "Charlie," as part of a new contest. The winner will receive $5,000 in cash and a trip to Paris to see the band perform on July 6th. Fans can enter the competition at warnerbrothers.com/rhcp.

The latest video from the Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium album, for the song "Hump De Bump," was directed by comedian Chris Rock, who also appears in the clip.

Wow... I know a lot of other people dont care.
And Im sure some hope they drop out, to get another headliner.
But I sure The Chili Peppers can make it!

Thier new single is Charlie though!?!?! Ugh! That is one of my least favorite songs on that entire album.

He will make it. Thom Yorke had a nasty throat infection DAYS before and made it to the festival.

Chris Rock goes from directing a shitty movie to directing a music video for a shitty band. Now that's what I call progress. Anyway, couldn't the title of this thread simply have read "Anthony Kiedis felled with pneumonia"? Are we not pop-culture savvy around these parts? Specifically when it comes to music, and even more specifically when it comes to bands whose popularity and/or quality reached its zenith sometime during the 90s?

quite seriously, if you don't dig a band, what's even the point of reading a thread about them?

congradulations, you've managed to regurgitate the same shite every other artsy douche on this board as already stated. Would you like a medal?
