2007 Grammy Award-winning rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers have canceled a handful of shows in the Japanese metropolises of Osaka and Tokyo due to singer Anthony Kiedis’ sudden illness. The fiery frontman has been diagnosed with bronchial pneumonia and has been advised by doctors not to fly for at least 10 days. Although the canceled gigs have not yet been rescheduled, RHCP are expected to slate the shows for this fall during their currently-in-the-works world tour.
