Prepare for the fabric of reality to change when HAIM opens for Red Hot Chili Peppers next summer.

Speaking with ABC Audio, Alana Haim reveals that she’s a “huge” fan of the “Under the Bridge” rockers. What she’s most looking forward to, though, is seeing her older sister and HAIM bassist Este Haim meet RHCP bass extraordinaire Flea for the first time.

“I feel like the Earth is gonna open up and, like, flames of basses are just gonna fall through the sky,” Alana says.

“I don’t think the world will ever be the same when Este meets Flea,” she continues. “I’m gonna hire a camera crew just so I can get the first reaction. I feel like they’re both just gonna, like, do bass solos at each other for 45 minutes.”

In addition to the RHCP shows, which take place July 23 in Denver and July 27 in San Diego, HAIM will be embarking on their own headlining tour next year. The outing will mark the trio’s first full tour behind their 2020 album Women in Music Pt. III, which Alana calls their “favorite.”

“I mean, that album was made to be toured,” Alana says. “Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we couldn’t tour. But finally I can say we are touring next year, which is really exciting.”

“I’m just ready to get back on the road, I miss it so much,” she adds. “I’m dying to play.”

HAIM’s U.S. headlining tour launches in April.
