Fresh off the release of their recent album, The Getaway, Red Hot Chili Peppers have plotted the dates for a North American tour scheduled to kick off in January 2017 in San Antonio, Texas. The tour will weave throughout the map until wrapping officially in Vancouver on March 18, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and Jack Irons will serve as the band’s supporting act for all schedule dates.

Given the band’s busy and hugely successful year headlining a number of festivals, tickets for their upcoming dates are already pushing high price points on the resale market, and many of the dates are long sold out on the primary market, forcing fans to rely on whatever they can find through secondary sources. As it stands, tickets to see Red Hot Chili Peppers are averaging $222 across all of their U.S. performances, with the highest price points registering for cities like Toronto, San Diego, and New York City. The band’s priciest performance is on track to be their February 4 stop at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, where tickets are averaging an impressive $334, with the cheapest ticket priced at $154. To compare, RHCP will play their cheapest show at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on January 4, where tickets are averaging $151 with a get-in price of $62, according to data provided by ticket aggregator, TicketIQ.

For their past major tour in 2012, the ‘I’m With You’ tour, the band posted resale ticket averages of $167, with their most expensive performance—their Los Angeles stop on August 11—averaging $330 with the cheapest ticket priced at $101. If all goes according to plan, ‘The Getaway’ tour could reveal some of the priciest tickets the band has ever seen.

Red Hot Chili Peppers played major stops this year at festivals like the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Rock On The Range in Columbus, Ohio, BottleRock in Napa Valley, Chicago’s Lollapalooza, as well as a handful of international festivals.
