Knebworth tickets are priced at £50 (plus £7.50 fees), while Sunderland Stadium of Light tickets will be available for £45 (plus £6.75 fees).

The group recently released their tenth studio album ‘I’m With You’ earlier this year.

When asked if they’re looking forward to these headline shows, Red Hot Chili Peppers front man Anthony Keidis commented: “Our philosophy is we’ll play any day, any time and we’re coming to do Knebworth and Sunderland.”

Outspoken bass player Flea also added: “Hell yeah! I just wanna explode.”

Despite festival rumours, Isle Of Wight Festival 2012 organiser John Giddings confirmed on Twitter that the Red Hot Chili Peppers aren’t playing the event this year.
