2017-05-24 08:00

Cape Town - One of the world’s greatest music acts, +LIVE+ has announced they will play South Africa as part of their reunion tour in November 2017. 

Presented by AMP Events, the show promises to feature all the highlights from +LIVE+’s incredible 25-year repertoire. 

+LIVE+ will be the first international musical act to grace the brand-new stage at the opening of Sun International’s Sun Arena at Time Square, Menlyn Maine, Pretoria.  They’ll perform there on 10 November 2017 and in Cape Town’s Grand Arena at GrandWest on 7 November 2017. 

Tickets go on sale on Thursday 25 May at 09:00 via Computicket.

"Fans of +LIVE+ have always shown incredible support when this band tours SA," says AMP CEO Andy Mac. "We saw all tickets sell-out in record time when their lead singer Ed Kowalczyk toured Joburg and Cape Town in 2015 for the Throwing Copper Anniversary Tour. We expect the same to happen for this reunion tour. Bands with a great legacy, such as +LIVE+, are the reason I started AMP Events and I can’t wait to see these guys rock out on stage."

The original line-up of +LIVE+ - Ed Kowalczyk (vocals, guitar), Chad Taylor (guitar, backing vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer(bass) and Chad Gracey (drums, percussion) recently reunited for this worldwide tour.  

2017 will mark the 25th anniversary of their debut album Mental Jewelry (released December 31, 1991). The multi-platinum band from Pennsylvania have sold over 22 million albums worldwide and earned two number one albums (Throwing Copper, Secret Samadhi). Their catalogue is filled with such gems as Lightning Crashes, I Alone, All Over You, and Lakini’s Juice, which +LIVE+ on today as classics at rock radio.

The original line-up of +LIVE+ performed their last show in July 2009 before going off in different directions. Rediscovering their friendship has healed old differences, setting the stage for the four members to come together to make music again.
