Red Hot Chili Peppers at New Orleans Jazz Festival 2016
According to ABC 7 News, Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis was rushed to the hospital Saturday night for an undisclosed medical issue.
The Chilis were scheduled to headline the KROQ Weenie Roast last night, but they canceled due to Kiedis’ hospitalization. Blink-182 filled the bill last minute.
Chili Peppers bassist Flea made a statement:
“Anthony is on his way to the hospital right now and we’re unable to play this evening,” he said. “We are devastated about it. We’re really sad. We love you so much. We live to rock. …. But unfortunately there’s a medical thing that happened and he needed to deal with it.”
