Red Hot Chili Peppers pull out of Billboard Music Awards performance slot

Red Hot Chili Peppers have left fans wondering if everything is okay with the band after Billboard Music Awards say the US rockers have pulled out of their performance slot this Sunday.

The band were due to perform at the award show for the first time since 1999 where they were joined by Snoop Dogg and performed 'Scar Tissue'.

Some fans are worried that Frusciante, who has just returned to the band might have left again for a third time, following his dislike of fame and success with the band in previous years.

However, this is just speculation by fans on Twitter and the BBMA's say the band looks forward to seeing fans this Summer

Red Hot Chili peppers will embark on a world tour to promote their new album Unlimited Love which was released earlier this year on April 1st.

However, the band have already started playing some shows in the states as they took the Foo Fighters slot at the New Orleans Jazz Festiva following the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins.

The band used a kit with Taylor written on it during a headline set at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Drummer Chad Smith made an impassioned speech and called for fans to celebrate Taylor’s life.
