Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis recently underwent surgery for multiple foot injuries, forcing the band to postpone their upcoming U.S. tour dates.

Kiedis is expected to make a full recovery after undergoing the surgeries to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot.

The tour which was originally slated to launch Jan. 20 in Sunrise, Fla., will now take place over two legs. A spring jaunt will kick off March 31 in Orlando, Fla., and run through an April 12 gig in Memphis, Tenn. After that, a summer/fall jaunt will start Aug. 14 in Oakland, Calif., and wrap up Oct. 25 in Little Rock, Ark.

Here’s wishing Kiedis a full recovery. See the Chili Peppers’ revised itinerary below:
