The cancer-fighting Blood Brothers are returning with the 2017 edition of their annual fund-and-awareness raising concerts.

Blood Brothers, the annual rock supergroup concert that aims to create cancer awareness among young people by “rocking their hearts out”, is happening on 30 September at the Good Luck Bar in Johannesburg. We managed to talk to Kobus de Kock Jnr, one of the ten musicians in the group, about the event, the campaign, and his experience as a third-timer.
Francois van Coke released his cover of Eagles of Death Metal’s I Love You All The Time – in a musical response to the terrible terrorist attack at a French concert last year. The attack took place at the Bataclan theater in Paris on 13 November 2015 where Eagles of Death Metal was performing, and left the band rattled, but determined to not be deterred.
As individuals, you’ve heard plently of songs from all of them. Now, the Blood Brothers released their first track and music video as a supergroup: People Gotta Know. The aim of the Blood Brothers is to spread awareness about, and raise funds for the fight against cancer. Together, they perform the major hits that made them famous plus songs from international bands that influenced their sound. They’re also finally bringing their 3 hour show to Cape Town this week.
