As Red Hot Chili Peppers gear up to release their forthcoming album. The band has announced they will perform at a benefit concert for presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. Special guests have yet to be announced.
Band member Flea gleefully shared the news on Instagram and Twitter stating, “So excited to be playing this concert for Bernie Sanders next week. Feels great to support someone I believe in. The Rhcp offered to give him the money to pay for the theater that night but he wouldn’t accept, he only accepts small donations from individuals. Every other politician greedily grabs every cent they can get from any scumbag lobbyist. This is a man with integrity. If you can please buy the expensive seats to help out the campaign. Thank you so much. Bernie sanders for president.”

Tickets, ranging from $40 to $2,700, will go on sale day of show at 10 a.m. PST via AXS.
Sanders is widely embraced by other musical artists. Members of Vampire Weekend will join Killer Mike, Foster the People, Josh Hutcherson and more at “Students for Bernie,” a Sanders rally scheduled for Saturday, January 30th at University of Iowa Field House. The event is free and open to the public.
