The announcement of concerts is coming hard and fast these past few months. Singapore is seeing a slew of big international acts in 2022 – including Billie Eilish, Guns N’ Roses, and Anderson Paak. Indie favourites like Last Dinosaurs and Boy Pablo are also headed our way, along with the huge stadium rock shows like Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Take a look at some of the biggest international tours heading to our sunny (or should we say gloomy?) shores the upcoming months of 2022 and early 2023.

Red Hot Chilli Peppers

The Red Hot Chilli Peppers are coming to spice up the Lion City this February 16 2023. The rockers, who are still famous around the world despite being in their 50s and 60s, recently dropped their 13th studio album, Return of the Dream Canteen, featuring their hit single Tippa My Tongue. “Return Of The Dream Canteen is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed,” the band said. RHCP’s tour marks the return of guitarist John Frusciante, who rejoined the band for a third go-round in 2019. Accordingly, Dream Canteen is populated with many lyrical and musical references to decades-old Red Hot Chilli Peppers songs. Look forward to the band’s hit songs – Californication, Other Side, Can’t Stop – alongside tracks from their new album. Tickets are available here.
