Red Hot Chili Pepper fans we’ve got some good news for you - the boys have confirmed they are hitting our shores next year!

Pepper bassist Flea made the announcement via Twitter after responding to a tweet from a fan who asked,

“Australia tour anytime soon???”

The Melbourne-born star said in response,

"Yes, we are coming to australia early next year, can't wait to feel the connection to my birthplace once again."

Since the news broke, there has been non-stop speculation about whether the group could be tying in their trip with a performance at 2013 Big Day Out festival.

The LA based band released their 10th album ‘I'm With You’ last year and haven't toured Australia since 2007. They last played at BDO in 2000 with Blink 182 and the Foo Fighters.
