Red Hot Chili Peppers aren’t just taking a page from Foo Fighters, they’re copying the entire book. After debuting their new LP I’m With You with a series of surprises shows across the Los Angeles metropolitan area, the band has now announced plans to perform “in a special high-definition cinematic in-theater event” on the day of the album’s release (August 30th). Sound familiar?
According to the Chili Peppers’ website, the band will perform their new album in its entirety live from from Cologne, Germany. Tickets for Red Hot Chili Peppers LIVE: Im With You go on sale starting tomorrow, Friday, August 5th at participating theater box offices at RHCPLiveHD.com, where you can also get exact theater showings and times.
Below, we have a live clip of the band performing their new album’s opening track, “Monarchy of Roses”, during one of those aforementioned surprise shows.
Im With You arrives August 30th via Warner Bros. Records.
