Dear Reader
Berlin - The Berlin-based alternative pop band Dear Reader will be in SA from 20 July to promote their latest album, Rivonia, and will play at venues in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Dear Reader, formerly known as Harris Tweed, was founded in 2006 by South Africans Cherilyn MacNeil and Darryl Tor, but MacNeil has been running the show by herself since 2010 in Berlin. The band won a SAMA in 2010 for Best English Adult Contemporary Album and was nominated again in 2012.

Rivonia is a collaboration between MacNeil, Earl Harvin, Konstantin Gropper and many other musicians from the indie scene. The tour will start in Cape Town at Moyo Kirstenbosch and move on to the Fugard Theatre, finishing up on 28 July in Pretoria. Visit their website for more information.
