Just as The Red Hot Chili Peppers were gearing up for a major world tour, their website announced today that they've been forced to postpone a large chunk of their tour due to an injury sustained by front-man Anthony Kiedis. He was recently spotted in LA hobbling about and now we get word that they're rescheduling some CA, TX and FLA dates due to foot surgery on Kiedis. The official release is both apologetic and filled with doctor's jargon:

Red Hot Chili Peppers regret to announce that they must postpone the start of their upcoming U.S. tour due to multiple foot injuries sustained by Anthony Kiedis. Anthony recently underwent surgery to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot and is expected to make a full recovery.

Basically, he's sustained an injury that very common in dancers, the sesamoid bone is a bone embedded in your tendon. If you've ever seen a RCHP show, you know Anthony does A LOT of jumping around, so it's no surprise that he's incurred such an injury. The tour schedule doesn't include a Midwest stop. the closest to St. Cloud they'll get is Denver on September 27th.
