Surgeons recently put Kiedis under the knife to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot.
Although he’s expected to make a full recover, he won’t exactly be on his feet for the band’s winter tour in support of their Grammy-nominated album, I’m With You.
Here’s what the revised schedule looks like:
Jan. 20 in Sunrise, Fla., at the BankAtlantic Center moves to April 2.
Jan. 21 in Orlando at the Amway Arena moves to March 31.
Jan. 23 in Tampa at the St. Pete Times Forum moves to March 29, becoming the first date on the North American schedule.
