Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are to play their first ever concerts in South Africa, nearly 30 years after his guitarist Steven Van Zandt led a campaign by rock musicians in protest against apartheid. Shows are scheduled for Cape Town on January 28 and 29 and Johannesburg on February 1 next year, according to Springsteen's website.

Rocker Lou Reed of Velvet Underground dies at 71.
