Fans of the Red Hot Chili Peppers have waited patiently for news about a new North American tour since before the summer release of their 10th album, ‘I’m With You.’ Finally, the first half-dozen dates have been announced.

The band will be ‘with’ U.S. audiences starting Jan. 25 in Charlotte, N.C. Tickets for the first six shows go on sale Dec. 3 and the band will announce many more shows and on-sale dates in the coming weeks.

Red Hot Chili Peppers have made professional digital recordings of every show since their European tour kicked off Nov. 7 in London, England. All North American dates will be recorded as well and sold as MP3 and FLAC files on the band’s Web site.

Early this month, the Chili Peppers released the video for ‘Monarchy of Roses,’ which was directed by Marc Klasfeld and depicts each of the musicians as graphic novel characters performing in a swirl of whizzing black and white comic book images and color roses.

In September, the band was nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, alongside Guns N’ Roses, Beastie Boys and others. An announcement regarding the inductees should come soon.
