On today’s date in 2010, Roger Taylor was interviewed for a radio station in Cape Town where he said that All You Need is Now (album) would be out in January with a world tour to follow.
This, of course was one of the interviews Roger did for promo as they announced their (then) upcoming five dates in South Africa. Unfortunately, the dates were canceled by the band just a week prior to their beginning date, citing the promoter had “defaulted on the contract”.
The South African dates were not rescheduled as hoped, leaving many South African very disappointed. Perhaps this next tour will have them visiting South Africa and making good on their return.
