Red Hot Chili Peppers to hit cinemas

Aug. 30 perf to be screened live in 450 theaters

The Red Hot Chili Peppers will launch “I’m With You,” their first album in five years, with a release-date live presentation of the album from Cologne, Germany, on Aug. 30 that will be screened in more than 450 U.S. theaters.

High-def digital satellite presentation by National CineMedia Fathom and BY Experience will feature the L.A. quartet performing the entire album in sequence plus greatest hits from the band’s multi-platinum career. Event will be the only time the Chili Peppers will play the set in its entirety.

“I’m With You” drops via Warner Bros. Records. It’s the funk-rock unit’s first release since 2006’s two-CD “Stadium Arcadium.” That album sold more than 2.3 million copies domestically and 7.3 million worldwide. Scheduled dates on act’s 2011 tour will encompass stadium shows in South America in September and Europe in October and December.

NCM Fathom has been involved in high-profile theatrical concert events including screenings of dates by metal’s “Big Four” (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax), Phish and Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival.

Company mounted Thursday’s U.S. screenings of the “Electric Daisy Carnival Experience” pic. The AMC and Regal chains yanked the doc from their screens after a massive disturbance at last week’s Hollywood premiere (Daily Variety, Aug. 1 and July 29).
