The Red Hot Chili Peppers have postponed their upcoming tour to allow time for frontman Anthony Kiedis to recuperate from the recent surgery on his foot to remove a bone and repair a detached flexor tendon. The band, which was originally due at the Pepsi Center on Sunday, March 4, delivered the news this morning on their website and also noted that tickets for the March date will be honored when the rescheduled show takes place on September 27.
