10 Years of Fokofpolisiekar – National tour

Photo: Jaco S. Venter

In 2003 the 5 members of Fokofpolisiekar took all the money they earned as extras in a German TV advert, climbed in a van and headed off to Impala Park in Boksburg where they spent five days with Jean Paul De Stefani at his B Sharp recording studio producing the 7-track EP titled As jy met Vuur speel sal jy Brand.  That changed the lives of the five friends forever. 10 years later and the band is now one of South Africa’s biggest music exports. As a celebration of the 10 year anniversary of the EP  As jy met Vuur speel sal jy Brand they have decided to embark on a national tour as well as release a limited number of vinyl copies of their debut EP that will be sold on their tour of SA. The band will perform their popular two-set show; an acoustic set followed by a full-on rock set.   Fokofpolisiekar has been working on new material so fans can look forward to at least two unreleased songs on the set list.  The show’s duration is  120 minutes and can’t be missed.
