A whole lot of people are planning to see Red Hot Chili Peppers and Tool in concert next year.

That’s according to the ticketing platform Gametime, which lists the two bands among the top 10 acts with the most in-demand concerts for 2022.

The Peppers, who are listed at number nine on the ranking, plan to embark on a global tour starting in June. The trek will mark the group’s first full live outing since guitarist John Frusciante rejoined in late 2019, and also boasts an eclectic batch of openers, including St. Vincent, HAIM, The Strokes and A$AP Rocky.

Tool, who grabs the number 10 spot, will launch a U.S. tour in January. Maynard James Keenan and company have been absent from the road since their 2020 outing was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other artists that make Gametime’s list include Billie Eilish, Elton John and Dead & Company collaborator John Mayer. Puerto Rican musician Bad Bunny is number one on the ranking.
