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.

Bummer. He's got a bum foot. Docs can fix almost anything these days ... they seem to in the NFL. He should be good as new before long.

Eddie Van Halen got hand surgery and hip surgery and he's doing good these days.

Get well soon Anthony! I want to see them get a "Uplift Mofo Party Plan" going for 2012. I want to see them spread some more of that "Blood Sugar Sex Magic" all around the world again. :)

Everyone that took to this post to criticize AK/RHCP's voice/musical talent are a joke. You don't to have to have a huge voice with a crazy range to be good. Just shut it and go watch the music video for Snow(not saying it is their best song)but it shows you exactly how great and loved they are! Young, old, black, white, rich or poor people love them!

TMZ-it should read "agonizing pain" (with a Z), not agonising.. We're in the US, not England. Check your spelling.

I hope Anthony gets well soon.
