    The Red Hot Chili Peppers have rescheduled a bunch of concerts on its upcoming U.S. tour, including their Dallas date, after lead singer Anthony Kiedis underwent foot surgery.

    "Anthony recently underwent surgery to remove a crushed sesamoid bone and correct a detached flexor tendon in his foot and he's expected to make a full recovery," the band said on its website.

    The sesamoid bone is the bone embedded within the tendon of the big toe.

    The injury isn't new, TMZ reports Kiedis has apparently been dealing with the foot problems since 2007's Stadium Arcadium tour when he jumped off the bass drum and injured his foot.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers rescheduled more than 20 concerts between now and March have been moved to April through October. The band was scheduled to play the American Airlines Center on March 9, but the concert has been moved to October 2.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers will take a break in their U.S. tour in Cleveland where the band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with Guns N' Roses and the Beastie boys on April 14.
