Frontman Anthony Kiedis' health condition forced Red Hot Chili Peppers to postpone the gigs in Japan.
Two venues in Japan will not see Red Hot Chili Peppers performing on the scheduled dates. The band has postponed the three gigs in Osaka and Tokyo due to vocalist Anthony Kiedis' recovery term from bronchial pneumonia.
The band's official website announced on March 17 that the lead singer is under doctor's command to lay down for 10 days. The concerts are initially intended at Osaka's Kyocera Dome on March 19 and at the Tokyo Dome on March 22 and 23. Besides apologizing for the inconvenience, the website also said that rescheduling will be announced soon and the make up dates are aimed approximately this fall.
Meanwhile, the band has been scheduled to play at Reading and Leeds on August 25th and Leeds Festival on August 26th. Tickets are already on sale starting from March 19.
