Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman, Anthony Kiedis, has suffered a crushed sesamoid bone attached to his right big toe. As such, the band has been forced to delay their U.S. tour set to start in January to March
Anthony Kiedis, lead singer of the group, Red Hot Chili Peppers, suffered an injury to the sesamoid bone in his right foot, reports TMZ. The sesamoid bone - which is located where a tendon passes over a joint in a hand, knee or foot - is connected to Kiedis' big toe and was crushed, thus forcing the band to postpone the American stretch of their tour.
According to Billboard, the 49-year-old Kiedis is expected to make a full recovery and the group expects to be back on their feet - pun not intended - come March 29 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The Chili Peppers frontman was seen with a cast at a Los Angelos Lakers game on January 8, however the actual cause of the injured sesamoid is not entirely known. Kiedis did tell the Los Angeles Times back in August that he had performed despite injuries in the past.
"I stayed out on tour with broken bones in my feet from jumping off the bass drum, which is kind of agonizing," he said, recalling the last Chili Peppers' tour.
