June 24, 2011

Famed funk rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers on Thursday morning announced a new tour of Latin America that includes a stop in Costa Rica. The band, known for hits like “Under the Bridge” and “Californication,” will play the National Stadium in western San José’s La Sabana Park, on Sept. 12.

The concert is listed on the band’s website and Facebook page with the introduction: “We’re coming to South America in September!!” But Costa Rica will have the band’s only tour date in Central America. The Latin America tour begins Sept. 11 in Colombia before it heads to Costa Rica, Chile, Peru, Argentina and Brazil. Costa Rica concert organizers Evenpro sent out a press release confirming the event. British alt-rock group Foals will open the concert.

The show will be the Chili Peppers’ first in Costa Rica since 2002. The band will release its 10th album, “I’m With You,” on Aug. 30.  

It had been suspected since mid-April that the Red Hot Chili Peppers would be coming to Costa Rica after the group’s bassist, Flea, posted a message on the social network Twitter, saying: “We will be in costa rica before you know it! for all the ticos and ticas!!!” (TT, April 26).
