The Red Hot Chili Peppers have sealed up their spring tour itinerary, which, as previously reported, begins May 1 in St. Paul, Minn., and is scheduled to run through June 21 in Salt Lake City. Queens Of The Stone Age and the Mars Volta will open through a May 20 gig in New York; Snoop Dogg and the Mars Volta will then shoulder support duties through the tour's conclusion.

Just beforehand, all acts, excluding Snoop Dogg, will pull into Indio, Calif., for the fourth Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. The Chili Peppers will headline the second night of the April 26-27 event.

The Chili Peppers and the Mars Volta are also set for a European trek, beginning March 5 in Glasgow. Later in the summer, the Peppers will headline the U.K.'s V2003 Festival (Aug. 16-17) and multi-act events in Berlin (Aug. 19) and Duisburg, Germany (Aug. 21). All the activity comes in support of the group's latest Warner Bros. set, "By the Way," which debuted last summer at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 1.37 million units in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
