    Would have been great to go, Unfortunately I've spent all my money on RHCP and LP tickets. Why squash all these artists into one month: LP, Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert. Hope the attendance isn't poor because everyone is broke after buying all the other tickets...

    I think I could burst with excitement - have been a fan of his ever since AI I will eat bread for the rest of the month but I am SO GOING!!!!!

    Well done on turning me into the world's worst parent. Due to Linkin Park performing the week before in JHB and the fact that we have to drive / fly up from JHB, I won't be able to take my 10-year old Adam Lambert fanatic. :( This sucks.

    Absolutely Fantastic. Liked him from when he started Americal Idols. Such a pity he did not win.

  • estelle.swart.31 - 2012-09-13 09:05

    Absolutely fantastic. Such a pity he did not win Americal Idol. He deserved winning. Would love to see him.

  • Genesistt - 2012-09-13 09:22

    My poor credit card! But I gotta go! I'm going to be concerted out after doing LP, Adam and Lady Gaga.

  • russellblack.cowan - 2012-09-13 09:23

    Can't they bring somebody decent like Rick Ross,Meek Mill,Jay-Z,Kanye West or Lil Wayne instead of brining all these stupid commercial pop "stars".

      russellblack.cowan - 2012-09-13 10:47

      All you people that gave me thumbs down are ignorant as hell about rap music and you ain't know notin about it. Rapping is about expressing yourself and this, is just rubbish Grow up.

      charmaine.louw.104 - 2012-09-13 15:15

      To all you haters... WTF? Someone who's music I really enjoy is coming to South Africa and that makes me happy - just be happy for me and stop hating, so you don't like that is fine, don't go but you don't have to put such horrible remarks on here, if Kanye West comes I would never lash out I would be happy for you 'cos it is something you like but would never call the music you like stupid.

      chaze.damonze - 2012-09-14 02:01

      Rap music made of poo...

      lynnmoore1234 - 2012-09-14 21:30

      Paperrosie - 2012-09-13 15:21

      Then nobody has to worry about seeing you there!

      hamish.drake1 - 2012-09-13 15:23

  • Owen Samuel - 2012-09-22 21:20

    i love it (better than i know my self)

  • kbanzon - 2012-10-16 14:24

    Got my tickets. I am flying from Durbs. After driving two hours from the south coast. Lots of effort but it will be worth it. I am missing Gaga and LP because of this. He's an awesome entertainer and I bet he'll put on a great live show.

  • joan.jerram.1 - 2012-11-12 08:32

    My beautiful daughter bought tickets for me to see him in Cape Town. One more sleep - can't wait to see this amazingly talented fabulous guy!!
