Cape Town - The Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in Johannesburg on 2 February 2013 is not 100% confirmed, reports Business Day.

According to an article on BDLive, the Confederation of African Football (Caf) has not yet granted permission for the use of the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg for the Red Hot Chili Peppers' performance.

The African Cup of Nations soccer tournament will be held in South Africa from 19 January to 10 February. The final match of the tournament is set to take place at the FNB Stadium a mere eight days after the scheduled rock concert.

Local organising committee CEO Mvuzo Mbebe told Business Day that he did not expect Caf to hinder the concert, and that FNB Stadium as well as other venues had established contracts that wouldn't easily be nullified due to being set up prior to the Afcon contract.

Big Concerts has prepared a comment in response to the news, saying: "We have an agreement with the stadiums for these events and as a consequence we don't foresee any problems with concert dates."

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are scheduled to perform at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on 2 February 2013 and at the Cape Town Stadium on 5 February 2013.
