Cape Town - Big Concerts announced on Wednesday that OneRepublic will be coming to South Africa touring in support of their latest album, Native.

They will be performing in Johannesburg on the 19 June 2015 at The Dome (get tickets here) and Cape Town on 21 June 2015 at the Grand Arena, GrandWest (get tickets here).

OneRepublic have achieved huge international success throughout their career. Their first album Dreaming Out Loud (2007) was certified as platinum earning them a Grammy nomination and went straight to number 1 in 16 countries. Their first single Apologize remixed by Timbaland ranks in the top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100’s All-Time Top Songs list and became a worldwide smash hit and their second single Stop and Stare followed with the same success. Their second album Waking Up (2009) spawned hit singles  All The Right Moves and Good Life.  

In creating their third full-length album Native (2013), OneRepublic travelled to Paris, Greece, London, New York, Seattle, and Vancouver to write and record describing it as a 'bold and boundary-pushing follow-up to 2009’s Waking Up, offering up a surge of stadium-sized rock that’s fiercely beat-driven yet ethereal and intimate'. Native debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 and their hit single Counting Stars reached number 2 on the Billboard Top 100, their highest charting single since Apologize, as well as the top 10 of the Kia Top 40 on 947.

OneRepublic’s Native Tour is their largest to date playing over 185 sold out dates around the world and South African fans are encouraged to get their tickets early to avoid disappointment.
