Anthony Kiedis

My Foot Is So JACKED UP,

I Can't Perform ... Yet

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have postponed their upcoming U.S. tour ... over a CRUSHED BONE in Anthony Kiedis's right foot ... the band has announced.

The band released a statement saying, "Anthony recently underwent surgery to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot."

For all you junior medical doctors out there -- the sesamoid bone is connected to Anthony's big toe.

Anthony is expected to make a full recovery -- and the band has posted the new tour dates on their website.

Kiedis has been dealing with foot problems since the famous Stadium Arcadium tour back in 2007 -- recently explaining, "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."

Earlier this week, Anthony went to the L.A. Lakers game ... with the help of some crutches ... but seemed to be in good spirits.

That is some sad news. I've got tix for the show in OKC. Love me some RHCP and was looking forward to seeing Josh play also. Anthony's mustache and haircut are funky looking but he is still my main man and always will be!

This dude looks like **** and can't sing for ****. People should really listen to him sing. He's horrible! The only reason the Chili Peppers were popular is because they put socks on their ***** and were all drugged up and crazy. Not cool anymore, just old and ugly.
