Foo Fighters set monster year-long tour beginning with South Africa dates

Rockers the Foo Fighters have announced a massive Beat The Bots world tour, which will begin with dates in South Africa next month (Dec14).

Dave Grohl and his bandmates will hit the road for concerts Chile, Argentina, Brazil, New Zealand, Australia, Britain, Germany and Norway, among other countries, before touring through North America next summer. The world trek won't end until October (15), with a final gig in Memphis, Tennessee.

Royal Blood and Mission of Burma will join the Foo Fighters for selective dates.

The concerts will be the band's first major trek since frontman Grohl sent fans into a spin when he hinted the band would not play together again after its last world tour came to an end in 2012.

He later set the record straight, insisting the Foo Fighters splitting up is "not gonna happen".
