American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, whose concerts in Israel have been repeatedly postponed due to the global pandemic, appear to have confirmed on Monday that they will not play shows in the Jewish state until at least until 2023.
The legendary group was scheduled to perform in Israel in June 2020, but postponed the concert due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Last week, the group announced their 2022 world tour in a social media post. The post included a list of countries across Europe and the United States. Israel, however, has been omitted from this list.
The Israeli production company shared the announcement on Facebook, writing: “We’ll see you in 2023.” The official Red-Hot Chili Peppers page replied, “See you guys!” and added an Israeli flag.
This is the band’s first tour to include former band member John Frusciante, who announced his official return to the band in 2019, following his departure in 2009.
The Israeli production company said tickets purchased for the original concert will be valid for the 2023 concert. “Those who wish to request a refund can do so through the box office, please note that the future ticket price may change,” leaving to hear that next year’s tickets may be more expensive.
