Cape Town – We can’t keep up anymore! The South African leg of the Ed Kowalczyk Throwing Copper unplugged tour has sold out, once again!
A fourth show went on sale on Thursday to meet the massive demand in Johannesburg and sold out by 10:00 on Friday.
The support has seen thousands of tickets snapped up:
  - The Cape Town concert for 25 September sold out in 15 minutes.
  - Thereafter the Joburg concert for 23 September and Cape Town 26 September sold out in 48 hours.
  - This week the fourth show for 24 September in Joburg was added after fans requested it on social media. This too sold out by 10:00 today .
A handful of VIP packages are now available for all four concerts allowing fans "meet and greet" access to the show, along with other perks, like attending the sound-check and receiving an autographed Limited Edition SA Tour poster etc. These packages are extremely limited and available from Computicket.
AMP Events Director and music promotor Andy Mac says: "We are blown away by the love for Ed Kowalczyk and the memories the Throwing Copper album holds for South Africans. That record meant the world to millions around the globe when it was released in 1994. Seeing him play those songs here, in this acoustic format, will be the experience of a lifetime."
Throwing Copper was a groundbreaking rock album released by the American alternative rock band Live. Founding member, songwriter and former Lead Singer, Ed Kowalczyk, is currently touring the world to mark the 20th anniversary of the album, playing all 14 songs in track order from beginning to end, unplugged, along with some of the other chart-topping hits released by his band.
