Powderfinger in South Africa!
By Ms Fanclub
Powderfinger recently stopped over in South Africa on the way home from their last ever UK tour. While they were there they did play their own headline show in Cape Town, but in a fortuitous twist of fate, the World Cup also happened to be taking place. The band took in the Australia vs Germany game in Durban (let's not speak of that) as well as the Italy vs Paraguay game. Here's a few of Darren's pics!

Great photos, looks like you had an awesome time. Wish you would play one last show in New Zealand for all your kiwi fans we don't want to be left out.

Great photos Darren. It looks like you had a great time over there. Good to have you home again though.

ahhhh how I love Fashions In The Field! *cough*
I'm not convinced Hoggy's wincing at the vuvuzelas. He's got a look on his face that says 'Oh no! I've been busted with the black clothes/brown shoes combo again, and this time the shoes have white soles!'

What do you mean new drummer?!?!

You boys look like you had a great time in our little country! I'm really gutted i missed your show in Cape Town, and hope you guys will be back sometime so I can get to see you guys live again. Saw you perform in London at Shepards Bush a few years ago... One of the best gigs I've been to! If you are out here again, play a few shows up country too! Big live music scene in Jo'burg!
