Chili Peppers were scheduled to headline this weekend’s KROQ Weenie Roast, but their appearance was canceled due to Kiedis’ hospitalization. Blink-182 were tapped as a last-minute replacement.
In a statement, Chili Peppers bassist Flea said, “Anthony is on his way to the hospital right now and we’re unable to play this evening,” he said. “We are devastated about it. We’re really sad. We love you so much. We live to rock. …. But unfortunately there’s a medical thing that happened and he needed to deal with it.”
