Red Hot Chili Peppers band kicked off a month long promotional tour in August 2011 starting in Asia. On August 30, 2011, the band appeared on movie screens throughout the world via-satellite from Cologne, Germany performing the entire new album in sequence minus "Even You Brutus" along with "Give It Away" and "Me and My Friends". The band officially kicked off the I'm with You tour on September 11, 2011. The tour is expected to last into 2013 and be one of the band's biggest to date. All shows from the upcoming world tour will be made available to purchase as downloads through LiveChiliPeppers.com.

The band was nominated for two MTV Europe Music Awards awards for Best Rock Band and Best Live Artist and nominated for Best Group at the 2012 People's Choice Award I'm with You was also nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album.

"Monarchy of Roses" was announced as the album's second single on September 17, 2011 during a interview with Anthony and Chad on BBC Radio 2. Host, Justin Lee Collins broke the news of the single. The single was released October 7, 2011 while the music video, directed by Marc Klasfeld was released November 14, 2011. The single became a minor hit however it has failed to reach the top of the charts like the album's previous single. It was announced in December 2011 that the third single from the album would be "Look Around" and the Robert Hales directed music video will be released January 25, 2012. In Brazil, fans voted for "Did I Let You Know" to be the next single and it will be exclusively released only in that country. The song was already getting heavy airplay at the time despite not being a single. This was also the first time ever the fans were allowed to select a single.

After being named a finalist in September 2011 and failing to make the final cut the previous two years, on December 7, 2011 the Red Hot Chili Peppers were announced as part of the Class of 2012 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. The awards ceremony will be held in April 2012. Kiedis was asked if John Frusciante would attend the induction ceremony and said he didn't know and assumed he wouldn't attend. He said he hasn't talked to Frusciante in a while so he doesn't know his feelings about the induction however he's more than welcome to attend and will be embraced if he does. Kiedis said he assumes both Cliff Martinez and Jack Irons will attend. Dave Navarro congratulated the band on their induction however said he has no plans to perform with them and it is unknown if he will attend.

The band was the main performer at a invitation only New Year's Eve party on December 31, 2011 which was held in St. Barts by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. The band performed for an hour and were joined by Toots Hibbert for a performance of Louie Louie to end the set. Around 300 guests including George Lucas, Martha Stewart, Marc Jacobs and Jimmy Buffett were invited to the party at Abramovich's $90 million estate.

On January 11, 2012, the band made the announcement that they were being forced to postpone the start of their U.S. tour, which was expected to begin on January 19, 2012. The tour has been postponed due to multiple foot injuries Kiedis has suffered through since the Stadium Arcadium tour. During a recent break for the band, Kiedis had surgery on his foot and is expected to make a full recovery. The first U.S. leg of the tour, including dates in Canada, will now kick off on March 29, 2012 and last into June 2012 with the rest of the already scheduled U.S. dates being made in August through October 2012. Dates in Australia and Asia, which were expected in 2012, have yet to be scheduled.
