NEW YORK  — There’s no rest for the spicy: Fresh off a world tour and two albums this year, Red Hot Chili Peppers are preparing for a set of stadium shows and festival stops across North America and Europe in 2023.

Live Nation said Monday the band’s 23-date global trek kicks off March 29 at BC Place in Vancouver, followed by shows in Las Vegas, San Diego, Houston, Lisbon, Madrid, Vienna and more before wrapping up on July 23 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Among the shows announced included a performance at the JMA Dome in Syracuse on Friday, April 14. Joining the band in Syracuse as opening acts will be The Strokes and King Princess. Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster. Presale tickets for the tour went on sale on Tuesday.

Joining the band on select dates will be The Strokes, Iggy Pop, The Roots, The Mars Volta, St. Vincent, City and Colour, Thundercat and King Princess.

The funk-rock band gave us not one but two albums in 2022 — October’s “Return of the Dream Canteen” and April’s “Unlimited Love.” Both spent time at No. 1 of Billboard’s top album sales chart.

The Peppers recently took home the Global Icon Award, at the MTV VMAs and their single “Black Summer” also won the award for Best Rock Video.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are known for such hit songs as “Give It Away,” “Scar Tissue,” “Californication” and “Otherside.” They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

Trade publication Pollstar put the Peppers at No. 4 on its list of most lucrative concert tours in 2022, behind Bad Bunny, Elton John and Lady Gaga, with an average box office gross per city of $5,605,217 and an average ticket price at $134.39.
