Los Angeles-based funk/rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers will play KeyArena Friday, March 17. Tickets, which cost $49-$99, will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 23, via Ticketmaster.com.

The band is touring in support of its 11th studio album, “The Getaway,” which Rolling Stone gave 3 1/2 stars and said in a review: “the Peppers’ 11th LP is a bold attempt to jibe their past party-dog selves with their present-day artistic ambitions – not always a perfect fit but a compelling one.” The album, released on June 17, debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s U.S. Top Rock Albums chart.

But it seems not everyone is a fan.

Upon the release of the album, Fox News host Greg Gutfeld mocked the band. “Worst band on the planet. Red Hot Chili Peppers — poor man’s Faith No More, don’t ever forget it,” said Gutfeld.

The band’s bassist Flea, speaking to NME, took the high road and responded: “I don’t care, they are all welcome to hate us and God bless ’em.”

The band will be joined by openers Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.
