Read Tom Morello’s fascinating South African Diary

Tom Morello compiled a photo diary from the recent South African tour with Bruce & The E Street Band, shared with us here! Check out his photos below and visit Facebook to read more from Tom’s travels through Cape Town and Johannesburg.


I’ve been trying to get to South Africa for a long time. As a teenager I wrote a letter to the anti-apartheid African National Congress trying to volunteer for Umkhonto we Sizwe, or “Spear Of The Nation”, the ANC’s military wing. I didn’t hear back. So it was with great excitement that I answered the call to join Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band on their first ever trip to South Africa. It was an incredible and very moving musical and personal journey. And I took a few photos along the way which you will see below. Just hold the mouse over the individual photo to read the caption. A great big thanks to Bruce and the band for having me along and looking forward to more adventures to come.

In solidarity,
Tom Morello
