    red hot chili peppers Sleigh Bells, Santigold, Little Dragon to open for Red Hot Chili Peppers

    Red Hot Chili Peppers have tapped quite the trio of openers for their upcoming U.S. tour. As Pitchfork points out, Sleigh Bells, Santigold, and Little Dragon will all take turns supporting the famed rock band. Check out their updated tour docket below.

    Per guitarist Derek Miller’s recent interview with The Daily, here’s how Sleigh Bells earned their spot:

    Flea came to a show of ours at Webster Hall. I was just hanging out and someone’s like, “Hey Derek, this is Flea.” And I was like, “Oh, nice to meet you, Flea. I’ve heard of you.” And he was an extremely sweet dude. He was like, “Hey, do you want to play shows with my band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers?” And I said, “Yeah, I’ll play shows with your band. Sure. Amazing.” So we just shook hands and he was like, “All right, you’ll hear from us.” And sure enough, a couple days later it came through.

    Seems like everything comes easy for this band.
