The RHCP is coming off along four-year hiatus, and the latest tour news is creating excitement for fans. The I'm With You Tour" will last most of the year and cover all of North America and much of Europe. The set list is reported to cover many of the original classic hits that helped launch the unique and talented band into the mainstream as well as new songs from their latest release in which the tour supports.
The band was originally formed back in 1983 with founding members Anthony Kiedis, Hillel Slovak, Michael "Flea" Balzary, and Jack Irons. They became an underground hit for their unique fusion of funk and punk sounds, which were yet to be explored by any band. They began playing smaller shows, which were more or less "improved" on the spot. Though unorganized at the time the record label EMI saw much potential and signed the band. The band added Cliff Martinez and Jake Sherman to replace Irons and Slovak and released their first self-titled album to mild success and radio play. The band continued to grow and underground base of fans. Slovak and Irons would return to the RHCP, but the band began to run into rough times battling drug addiction. Kiedis would leave the band to clean up in rehab, and Slovak passed way from a related drug overdose. The death of Slovak greatly affected the entire band; Irons would leave the RHCP and later join Pearl Jam.
Through all the minor success and major problems for the early years of the band, they could triumph through. Flea and Kiedis stayed persistent on their vision and hired John Frusciante and Chad Smith. The second line-up would quickly record "Mother's Milk" and break into the mainstream with a hit album. The RHCP then left EMI and signed with Warner Bros. Records. The band could work under legendary producer Rick Rubin. The collaboration would lead to the 1991 release of "Blood Sugar Sex Magik," which launched the band into superstars almost overnight. The band continued to struggle with drug addiction and internal problems between its members. Eventually, Frusciante would leave the band and be replaced with "Jane's Addiction" guitarist Dave Navarro. The new addition would prove not to work musically for the band, and Flea approached and convinced Frusciante to return. The move would lead to the huge success of "Californication." The RHCP then released two more less successful albums "By the Way," and "Stadium Arcade." After almost nine full years of recording and supporting tours the ban took a four-year break. The release of "I'm With You" and the many concert dates scheduled for 2012 proves that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are far from calling it quits.
