The Foo Fighters will be going to Africa this year! South Africa that is. I don't know a TON about South Africa other than I can trace some family back there in the 1800's and that's where the bad guys from Lethal Weapon 2 were from. OH, and my parents just went there on vacation. They brough me back some stuff.
Have some stuff from South Africa wich was all made in China
But after dropping a couple hints over the weekend, the Foo's have officially announced plans to play two shows -- one in Cape Town on December 10th and another in Johannesburg on December 13th. The stadium gigs will also feature the Kaiser Chiefs and BLK JKS as well. But Dave Grohl says they haven't forgotten about their Stateside fans. They've also confirmed an appearance at the Life Is Beautiful Festival, which takes place October 24th through the 26th in Las Vegas.
I want to hear "Big Me" on a Vevuzela
The Foo Fighters are set to release a new album in November and will also be the subject of a new HBO docuseries. That should be cool. I'm guessing a US Tour will follow. I hope so anyway
Die Antwoord, might be the greatest invention out of South Africa since the Apartied ended and Mandella was freed, but in a completely different, perhaps absolute opposite way. If you haven't done yourself the favor of watching all their videos, put the kids to sleep and indulge on Youtube. Otherwise, scroll down and get initiated.
