Red Hot Chili Peppers
Bringing the heat on happy feet to OKC and Tulsa
Monday-Tuesday, Oct. 22-23
Nothing can keep the Red Hot Chili Peppers from total stage domination on their latest tour – nothing except maybe their own feet. The trifecta of rock, rap and funk is still as playfully wanton and loud as for its 1991 breakout album Blood Sugar Sex Magik, but shortly before the band was set to begin its winter tour in January, members announced they would postpone the dates (including March concerts in Oklahoma City and Tulsa) until after lead singer Anthony Kiedis fully recovered from surgery to fix his foot, specifically, a sesamoid bone and a detached flexor tendon. Now that October is here, fans who bought tickets for the original concert dates are itching to hand them over to mosh with the best of them. And although guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, who blogged late last month from San Antonio, Texas, about his broken foot, may still be hobbling in a cast, it looks like the shows will go on. Until then, take it easy, guys. The Red Hot Chili Peppers play Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave. at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22. Tickets for the Oklahoma City show are $35-$55 (fees may apply). Go to www.chesapeakearena.com to purchase and find more information. The band moves to Tulsa’s BOK Center, 200 S. Denver Ave., for its 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, appointment. Tulsa show tickets are $37.50-$57.50, available online at www.bokcenter.com.
