Cape Town – British singer-songwriter and guitarist James Morrison will perform in South Africa for the first time, early next year.  

The two-city concert tour begins at Montecasino’s Teatro on Tuesday, 22 and Wednesday, 23 January then moving to Cape Town’s Kirstenbosch Gardens for one concert only on Saturday, 26 January 2019. 

About coming to South Africa James said: “I’m super excited to be heading to South Africa for a few shows next year! It’ll be my first time playing there and my first gigs in a little while, can’t wait to play in Johannesburg and then with the mountains as the backdrop in Cape Town’s Botanical Garden.

MORE ABOUT JAMES MORRISON’S CAREER:
 
When James Morrison broke onto the scene as a soulful singer-songwriter in 2006 even he couldn’t have predicted that he would become the template that allowed a wave of like-minded musicians to enter the field. Pop gems like You Give Me Something from his first record Undiscovered, made him anything but and he won the 2007 BRIT Award for Best Male when he was just 21 years old.  

LISTEN TO YOU GIVE ME SOMETHING HERE:

  

The 34-year-old singer-songwriter has now sold 4.5 million copies of his three albums, performed four world tours including sold-out shows to thousands at London’s Hyde Park, supporting both Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder.  

NEW MUSIC JUST IN TIME FOR HIS SA TOUR:
 
This year Morrison has made a brand-new album that is his most honest and powerful set of songs yet. To be released next year (just in time for his SA tour), the album explores his relationship, being a father and his family, as well as his experiences with dark times and light. Recorded at British Grove and Metrophonic Studios and produced by Mark Taylor (Lady Gaga, Nelly Furtado, Kylie Minogue), the album sees the return of James Morrison to his soulful best.
