Red Hot Chili Peppers are due to return to the UK for their first tour of the country in five years this December. And, it looks like the band are bringing an unexpected special guest along for the ride.
J-pop teen metallers Babymetal have been announced as the support act for the jaunt, touring behind their latest album "Metal Resistance."
Tickets for the UK shows go on general sale 10 am. On Friday, September 2, so if a Red Hot Chili Peppers/Babymetal double bill has you psyched, then mark that date down in your diary.
