Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Strokes line up 2022 Comerica Park date
It will be a stadium (arcadium) extravaganza when the two veteran bands, along with Thundercat, play Comerica Park in Aug. 2022.
Comerica Park will be Red Hot next summer.
It will be on Aug. 14, at least. That's when the Red Hot Chili Peppers will play the Detroit Tigers' home on its 2022 tour, the veteran alt-funk rockers announced Thursday.
They'll be joined by New York rockers the Strokes and L.A. bass-playing virtuoso Thundercat.
Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 15 through the Chili Peppers' website, redhotchilipeppers.com. Pre-sales begin at 10 a.m. Saturday.
The outing will mark the first-ever stadium tour for the group, which was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. The band is currently back with guitarist John Frusciante, who left the group in 2009, and is working on a new album with producer Rick Rubin, the band's first since 2016's "The Getaway."
The group, which boasts two members from Michigan — singer Anthony Kiedis is from Grand Rapids, drummer Chad Smith hails from Bloomfield Hills — last played Detroit in a February 2017 concert at Joe Louis Arena.
The Strokes, for their part, have not visited the Motor City in 15 years, since an April 2006 show at the State Theatre — back before the venue was renamed the Fillmore Detroit — in support of the group's third album, "First Impressions of Earth."
The Chili Peppers' 2022 world tour kicks off in June in Spain and wraps Sept. 18 in Arlington, Texas.
Haim, Beck, A$AP Rocky, St. Vincent and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals are among the opening acts enlisted in other cities on the tour.
The Comerica Park show is the fourth concert announced for the 2022 season following Billy Joel on July 9 and Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on July 10, both makeup concerts from 2020, as well as Elton John on July 18.
