UK band Bastille for 'green' SA tour

2013-09-02 11:40
Cape Town - Breakout British rock band Bastille will be coming to South Africa for two shows in January 2014.

The announcement was made on Monday by 5FM, who are bringing the band to SA in partnership with Seed Experiences.

Bastille, a London-based four piece, will be performing in Cape Town at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on Wednesday, 8 January 2014, and Emmarentia Dam in Johannesburg on Saturday, 11 January.

Hailed as one of Britain’s most exciting new bands, Bastille rocked local radio this year with their breakout hit Pompeii – which has sold over a million copies. Other hits from their debut album Bad Blood, which debuted at the top of the UK album chart upon its release in March this year, include Things We Lost in the Fire, Overjoyed, Flaws and the title song Bad Blood.

The two SA shows will be held in natural locations and fans are asked to take heed of their environment when attending the concerts.

The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens Kirstenbosch is a bin-free venue – which means that whatever is brought in must be taken out. There will be no bars so fans must bring their own picnic baskets. Fans are also asked to respect the peace and cleanliness of the surrounding residential areas when leaving.

There will be food and drink on sale at the Emmarentia Dam show, and fans can also bring their own picnic baskets. Children are welcome at both events.

Tickets are already on sale for R365 via Webtickets.
