Red Hot Chilli Peppers have released their eleventh studio album, entitled “The Getaway”, and are already promoting it with a massive “The Getaway World Tour” which also includes performances at Leeds & Reading and other summer festivals. In November, they are set to play a few German dates (Munich, Berlin, Cologne) including a show at Munich’s Olympiahalle on November 1, 2016. Tickets will be on sale from Wednesday July 6, 2016 and you can by yours from Muenchenticket.de.
“The Getaway” was produced by Danger Mouse, who replaced Rick Rubin after twenty-five years and six albums as the band's producer, making it the first non-Rubin produced album since 1989's Mother's Milk. The album was preceded by the first single "Dark Necessities" on May 5, 2016. "Dark Necessities" (video below) became the band's 25th top-ten single on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, a record they hold over U2 who currently have 23 top-ten singles.
“The Getaway” made its debut at number one in ten different countries while reaching number two in the United States along with the United Kingdom and Canada.The headlining tour to support the album will begin in Europe in September 2016 and last until the end of the year with the North American tour expected to begin in January 2017. Like the previous two tours, Chris Warren will serve as a backing keyboard player while Nate Walcott joined the tour as a pianist and the band's assistant tour manager Sam Banuelos provides additional bass on "Go Robot"
