Foo Fighters will perform in South Africa for the first time ever


It isn’t often an American rock band tours South Africa, but Foo Fighters will be hitting the continent in support of their forthcoming eighth studio album. The band has announced stadium shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg for this December, featuring Kaiser Chiefs and BLK JKS in support. The dates mark the band’s first ever shows in South Africa.

Foo Fighters’ new album, the follow-up to 2011’s excellent Wasting Light, is due out in November.
