Red Hot Chili Peppers
Five years after the release of I’m With You which hit #1 in 18 countries, The Getaway (through Warner Music Australia) is the band’s sixth ARIA #1 album.
It follows in the footsteps of earlier #1s: Stadium Arcadium (2006), By The Way (2002), Californication (1999), One Hot Minute (1995) and one of the biggest albums of the ’90s – Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1992) – which Rolling Stone rated in the top 20 of the “100 Best Albums of the ’90s”.
Red Hot Chili Peppers – singer Anthony Kiedis, Melbourne-born bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer – have sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs, and won six Grammy Awards.
These include “Best Rock Album” for Stadium Arcadium, “Best Rock Performance By a Duo or Group” for ‘Dani California’, “Best Rock Song” for ‘Scar Tissue’, and “Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocal” for ‘Give It Away’.
The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2012.
Red Hot Chili Peppers last played a headline tour of Australia in April 2007, performing nine sold-out shows to a total attendance in excess of 140,000. The band last returned to Australia to headline at Big Day Out 2013.
