Red Hot Chili Peppers heat up Americanairlines Arena for the first time with a sold-out, one-night-only con­cert.

With over 80 mil­lion records sold, six Grammy Awards, and a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, one might not ex­pect the Red Hot Chili Peppers to sud­denly start singing a dif­fer­ent tune. But after more than three decades of suc­cess, the band has done just that with its lat­est al­bum, The Get­away, which lucky Miamians will hear live when the Chili Peppers play at Americanairlines Arena for the very first time on April 29.

Re­leased last June, the 13-track stu­dio al­bum was pro­duced by Brian “Dan­ger Mouse” Bur­ton, who in­tro­duced a new cre­ative process in­volv­ing writ­ing to­gether in the stu­dio and play­ing to a click track, ac­cord­ing to an

En­ter­tain­ment Weekly interview with lead singer An­thony Kiedis.

The new ap­proach worked, with the al­bum de­but­ing at num­ber two on the Bill­board 200 and num­ber one on

Bill­board’s Top Rock Al­bums chart, while the first sin­gle, “Dark Ne­ces­si­ties,” be­came the band’s 13th num­ber-one on the Al­ter­na­tive Songs chart.

Still, there’s noth­ing like hear­ing Kiedis kill it on­stage. Along with other new tracks, like “Sick Love” (fea­tur­ing El­ton John on the keys), there’s no doubt you’ll hear clas­sics like “Scar Tis­sue” and “Cal­i­for­ni­ca­tion” when the Chili Peppers take the Magic City. Mi­ami just got a whole lot hot­ter.
