Almost five month on from their cancelled Bellahouston Park gig, rock legends Red Hot Chili Peppers have finally announced a rescheduled date – although it will now take place at a completely different venue.
The band, who pulled out of the highly anticipated show last summer, will return to Glasgow with a gig at Hampden Park as Anthony Kiedis and co. now get set to showcase their two new albums, Unlimited Love and Return of the Dream Canteen, at the national stadium.
Back in July, approximately 100,000 people were set to attend the summer event last in Glasgow, however, fans were left hugely disappointed when the band confirmed the show would be cancelled just hours before they were due to hit the stage.
On the cancelled show, the Chilis said they were “deeply disappointed” in having to cancel the event and told fans they would have an update on a new date “soon” – though little has been said about the rescheduled show until yesterday’s announcement.
Popular basis Flea later tweeted that the band were “yearning” to play Glasgow, insisting that a revised date for their cancelled July 1 show at Bellahouston Park would be announced “as soon as we can figure it out”.
And now, after weeks of waiting, it appears Chilis fans will finally get to see the ‘Under The Bridge’ and ‘All Around The World’ hit makers in the new year.
Here’s everything you need to know about the gig, including when tickets go on sale and what do if you had tickets for the original date.
