Red Hot Chili Peppers will return to Omaha in October.
The popular funk-rock quartet will perform here for the first time in several years when it plays the CenturyLink Center Omaha on Oct. 28.
Tickets, $57.50 and $37.50, go on sale April 21 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster retail outlets, the CenturyLink Center box office or by phone at 800-745-3000.
The tour comes on heels of the band's 10th album, "I'm With You." With songs such as "under the Bridge" and "Californication," the band rose to popularity in the '90s.
It's been a big week for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In addition to more tour announcements, the band announced a headlining spot at this year's Lollapalooza music festival and the band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday.
"It's funny," said singer Anthony Kiedis. "People have asked me, `Did you ever think you would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?' It's a funny question because the answer is, `Of course not.' When we started, we thought maybe in periods of 24 hours at a time. The most we would ever think is a week at a time: `Oh, we have a gig next Thursday. We should write a song.'"
If not for a foot injury, the band may have been in Omaha sooner. Kiedis broke his foot while on vacation in St. Barts and the band had to postpone its tour.
