Fokofpolisiekar are celebrating 10 years in the South Africa Music Industry with a tour of South Africa. The tour which is fittingly named “En Nou’s Dit Tien Jaar later” kicks off this week Wednesday in Klerksdorp.
Fokofpolisiekar burst onto the SA Music scene in 2003 and has had a massive impact on the industry of the past decade. To date the band have released 3 studio albums and 3 EPs: The As Jy Met Vuur Speel Sal Jy Brand EP (in 2003), the Lugsteuring album (in 2004), the Monoloog In Stereo EP (in 2005), the Brand Suid-Afrika Single (in 2006), the Swanesang album (in 2006) and the Antiobiotika EP (in 2008). The band also released a Best of album in late 2012. The Best Of album features 22 of their best songs and a Bonus DVD with ALL of their music videos (some of which have not been played on MK).
“En Nou’s Dit Tien Jaar later” promises to be one of the most epic tours of 2013. Get your butt down to one of these shows in February and March. Support South African Music, it’s the right thing to do.
