LA-based rockers are finally returning to home soil for their highly anticipated 4-date, country-wide tour.
Their first gig in the country will kick off at Cape Town’s Grand Arena at Grand West Casino & Entertainment World on the 15th, the band will then be performing at Johannesburg’s Standard Bank Arena on the 16th, Durban’s Wave House on the 20th, and finally the Port Elizabeth’s UPE Indoor Sports Centre on the 21st. of June 2008.
The internationally acclaimed SA-bred band, who last played here in 2006, with Metallica, Collective Soul, Simple Plan and The Rasmus, head home at the tail end of their extensive European tour, with highlight performances at Germany’s Rock am Ring Festival and England’s Download Festival.
"I love coming back to SA to play shows. I always feel so proud walking out onto a stage with SA fans in front of me. It’s a different audience. It’s very powerful. It’s very emotional performing back home. I love it," explained front-man Shaun Morgan Welgemoed.
