Cape Town will host two of the world’s biggest music acts on consecutive days in the new week. Rock royalty Bon Jovi will perform at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday May 7, while the world’s biggest pop star Justin Bieber will serenade his legion of fans the following day on May 8 at the same venue.
Bon Jovi’s return to the road in 2013 will cap an incredible run which has secured the group status as the essential live rock band – having performed more than 2700 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 35 million fans, and earning the #1 grossing worldwide tour twice in just three years.
With one of the greatest catalogues of songs in the history of rock n’ roll, Bon Jovi has sold more than 125 million albums and racked up a stellar resume of career accomplishments.
With worldwide album sales in excess of 15 million units, Bieber has dominated pop culture and social media for more than three years. He has more than 44 million Facebook fans, more than 23 million Twitter followers, and more than three billion YouTube views, making him the most popular YouTube artist of all time. Now Capetonian fans will get to see him live for the first time.
ChianoSky and LCNVL have been confirmed as the artists that will support Bieber when he lights up Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday. Big Concerts has also confirmed that a limited amount of general standing and seated tickets are on sale from Computicket or bigconcerts.co.za and they are expected to sell quickly.
Recently nominated for five MTN SAMA Awards (including Best Female & Record of the Year), ChianoSky was voted by Glamour Magazine 2012 as the “Next Big Thing”. With over 200000 views on her YouTube Channel, ChianoSky’s first two singles ‘Sick Sick’ and ‘Walking Away’ both achieved Top 10 positions on the National Mediaguide Airplay Chart.
The Chaplin twins (Andrew & Brian) are back in 2013 with a brand new sound, a new logo, a smash hit called ‘Closer’ which is currently number one on 5FM and a brand new album called ‘Faster Longer Mixtape’.
LCNVL (Locnville) have been South Africa’s most successful pop act of the past five years selling over 100000 physical albums; winning the SAMAs for Best Selling Album and Best Newcomer; touring the world playing alongside the likes of Taio Cruz, Mike Posner and Jason Derulo; and having their music featured on TV ads by big brands like MTN, PlayStation, Supersport and featuring on EA’s top selling FIFA game.
