Anthony Kiedis has had surgery on his right foot to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon. He arrived at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 8th, 2012 on crutches with his right foot braced in a walking boot. His girlfriend, Beth Jeans Houghton also attended the Lakers vs Memphis Grizzlies game.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers tour has been rescheduled while Anthony Kiedis takes eight weeks to allow his foot to recover. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Anthony has had ongoing problems with fractures in the metatarsals of his feet since the Stadium Arcadium Tour. Back in August of 2011 he spoke of the injury and how it originally occured, “I stayed out on tour with broken bones in my feet from jumping off the bass drum, which is kind of agonising, and it led to me being in a bad state of mind.”
Anthony was showing signs of a problem when photographed by Clara Balzary with tape on his right foot, resting on his back while on tour in Vienna, Austria on December 7th, 2011.
