Anthony Kiedis set to recover from health alert, say Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers say frontman Anthony Kiedis will recover fully from the stomach problem that cancelled show at short notice

Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has been diagnosed with intestinal flu after a hospital dash, and he’s set to make a full recovery, the band say.

They were forced to cancel a California show at short notice over the weekend when the singer suffered serious stomach pain, leaving bassist Flea to tell the waiting audience that they couldn’t play.

They’ve now called off their next date, set for Tuesday (May 17) in California, but all other commitments remain on the calendar.

A statement says: “The Red Hot Chili Peppers regretfully must postpone their concert for iHeart Radio on May 17. They would like to extend their gratitude to fans for the outpouring of well-wishes. Anthony is expected to make a full recovery soon.”

RHCP release 11th album The Getaway on June 17, and they streamed lead track Dark Necessities earlier this month.
