Stadium Arcadium Tour

Stadium Arcadium Tour

The Stadium Arcadium World Tour was a 2006-2007 concert tour by the band Red Hot Chili Peppers in support of their ninth studio album, Stadium Arcadium. The band started out with a pre-tour promotional leg of dates around the world while the world tour was composed of six legs, three in Europe, one in Australia, New Zealand and Asia, and the other two in the US and Canada.

The tour was the last to feature guitarist John Frusciante, who confirmed his departure from the band in 2009. Frusciante was replaced in the band by longtime friend and musical partner, Josh Klinghoffer, who was a backing musician for the Peppers in 2007 on the final legs of the Stadium Arcadium tour, serving as an additional guitarist, backing vocalist, and performing keyboard parts. Adding an extra guitarist for the first time to their touring lineup gave the band a chance to perform songs that they were otherwise unable to play with just one guitarist.

Famous quotes containing the words tour and/or stadium:

    Left Washington, September 6, on a tour through Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Virginia.... Absent nineteen days. Received every where heartily. The country is again one and united! I am very happy to be able to feel that the course taken has turned out so well.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    It’s no accident that of all the monuments left of the Greco- Roman culture the biggest is the ballpark, the Colosseum, the Yankee Stadium of ancient times.
