Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently on the European leg of their Unlimited Love tour, and though Flea may get wild onstage, offstage he's usually got his nose in a book. Over the weekend, the bassist shared his tour reading list on Instagram.

"Tour reading on this magic euro leg," he wrote, "finished the Labatut, it was f**king stunning and I was barely smart enough to understand it, the duality of the universe!!! I’m 3/4 way through the Kiese Laymon and hypnotized by his story, the depth and vulnerability of his insight, the love in it, learning, learning, so happy I got it out of my wife’s suitcase. Next I’m going right into the jane austin [sic] I just picked up in a little used book shop in Amsterdam and I’m psyched about it!!!"

See his post below.

RHCP will continue playing through Europe before heading to North America in July. See a full list of remaining tour date below.
