One of the last remaining torchbearers of ’90s alt-rock, the Foo Fighters have an album coming out in November and in getting ready to tour the world to promote it they just announced their first series of shows for next year in South America. The band is currently set to pay the Life is Beautiful Festival in Vegas on October 26, followed by an appearance at the Voodoo Experience in New Orleans on November 2. After that, it’s on to a couple shows in South Africa: one in Cape Town on December 10 and another in Johannesburg on December 13. They’ll kick things off in this hemisphere on January 15 in Santiago, Chile, followed by a show in Buenos Aires, Argentina on January 18. They’ll then move on to a series of shows in Brazil, playing Porto Alegre on January 21, Sao Paulo on January 23 and Rio de Janerio on January 25. They’ll close out their leg south of the border on January 31 in Bogota, Colombia. Details on the venues for the South American shows will be announced later.

They’ve since become a mainstay of American rock, releasing six more studio albums, four of which went on to certified platinum status (the other two were gold). Their newest album is entitled Sonic Highways and is set for November 10 release. The album features eight tracks recorded in eight different US cities with local legends.
