Red Hot Chilli Peppers fans have waited a LONG time for this moment, with the band heading on their first tour since 2016.
They’ve picked a huge venue to play here in Manchester, taking over the Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground for the night.
The Californiacation singers will be performing on Wednesday 22 June as part of their 2022 world tour.
The tour from bandmates Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith and John Frusciante comes in support of their 12th studio album, Unlimited Love.
It’s the final big gig of the summer at the venue, following shows from Harry Styles and The Killers.
Here’s what you need to know.

His biggest hits include Praise the Lord (Da Shine) with Skepta, F**kin’ Problems featuring Drake, and Wild For the Night.
Fellow Los Angelan rapper Thundercat will also be supporting the group.
The two-time Grammy winner has five studio albums to his name.

How do I get to the Emirate Old Trafford cricket ground?
TfGM has issued some travel advice for those heading to the cricket ground to see Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
Trams on the Altrincham line operate to Old Trafford, which is directly next to the stadium, or you can try to beat the crowds a bit by using one of the other tram lines and stops that are within walking distance.
Firswood, Wharfside and Exchange Quay are all between a 10 minute and a 20 minute walk away.
Tram services are expected to be very busy, so those who live within walking distance of the venue are encouraged to head there on foot.
Road closures will be in place around the cricket ground – visit TfGM for details.
What will the setlist be?
This is what they went for on their most recent gig in Budapest, but the setlist has changed slightly as the tour goes on.
