Red Hot Chili Peppers have revealed more about the band member injury that caused the group to withdraw from their scheduled performance at the 32nd Annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas concert that took place this past Saturday (Dec. 9) in Los Angeles.

When the Chili Peppers first announced their withdrawal on Dec. 5, they said only that a member was injured without further clarification. Now, in a Dec. 10 video to KROQ listeners, Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis shares insider knowledge about the who and what of the injury, and in a way that only he can — by singing it.

See Kiedis' musical apology clip below.

Anthony Kiedis Video Message - Dec. 10

"Our guitarist John Frusciante broke a finger / Yes, it's true," Kiedis sings in a low croon in the video. "My apologies to you / And you and you."

Red Hot Chili Peppers Member Injured

In their Dec. 5 statement, the Peppers promised to make up their cancellation when they instead play the Almost Acoustic Christmas Encore concert on March 2, 2024, at the Forum in Los Angeles.

"It is with deep regret that we will not be able to perform this weekend at [KROQ Almost Acoustic]," the band explained at the time. "A band member was injured, preventing us from being able to perform for at least 6 weeks. However, RHCP and ​KROQ are excited to make it up to you. … Have a great time this weekend and hang on to your ticket."

Last year, Chili Peppers released Unlimited Love and Return of the Dream Canteen, their first albums with a returning Frusciante in over a decade. The Peppers will continue to tour behind them on the road in 2024.
