Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has spoken about an injury he sustained on tour in a recent interview. The Chili’s are currently in the middle of a huge world tour in support of their 2016 album ‘The Getaway’.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are without a doubt one of the most energetic live acts you’re ever likely to encounter, and their current ‘The Getaway’ world tour has included some of the band’s best performances in years.
The Chili’s released ‘The Getaway’ in March of last year. The album has so far been supported by three hit singles titled ‘Dark Necessities’, ‘Go Robot’ and ‘Sick Love’, and peaked at number one in over 10 countries worldwide. The record also gave the band their seventh consecutive Top 10 entry on the Billboard 200.
In a recent interview with ET Canada, frontman Anthony Kiedis opened up about how ‘The Getaway’ world tour has been taking its toll on the band. During the interview he explained: “I’m always getting banged up, and hurt, and repairing, and recovering, and hurting, and it’s just normal,” “At the moment, I have a torn tendon in my ankle from spinning around night after night, but it’ll heal.”
Kiedis Added “I’d be a little bit lost without the nerves. I’d want to be borderline ready to throw up from nerves, and then I’m ready to go.”
Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently mid-way through the American leg of their world tour.
