Simon says Soccer!

2007-07-06 18:53
The soulful British pop brother jets in to Jozi and the Mother of all cities next week to promote his second solo album Grace at two exclusive “invitation-only” concerts. Not invited? No sweat. News just in is that he’s hooking up with a bunch of SA celebrities and having a bit of a soccer bash next week Tuesday. This time everyone’s invited!

Okay, but what if you’re stressing about the damage to your delicate pocket and wondering if it’ll even be worth going all the way to the Bedfordview Italian Club to watch an ex-boy band crooner attempt to kick a soccer ball? Well, it turns out sexy Simon knows his way around a football pitch. Yep, just like Robbie Williams and most British boy band singers Simon had aspirations of being a professional footballer when was growing up. Only difference between the two is that Simon had both Liverpool and Aston Villa scouting him at the ripe age of about 17. So why did he choose the boy band beat road to fame instead of booting a soccer ball? Turns out a ligament injury was to blame.

Oh, as far as the damage to your pocket goes: it’s FREE brokey! Catch Simon in soccer boots and working up a sweat alongside a star-studded cast of local celebrities including Watershed’s lead-singer Craig Hinds, Tuks, YFM’s Admiral, Darren ‘Wackhead’ Simpson, Loyiso Bala, Danny K, Doc Khumalo and Eric Tinkler. Diarise: Tuesday July 10. Kick off is at 7.30pm. Altogether now….”LADUUUU-MA!”
