“But if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all” will echo through the valleys of Kirstenbosch Gardens and the parks of Emmarentia Dam in January 2014. That’s right, Bastille is coming to South Africa for the first time and will perform two live shows in Cape Town on Wednesday, 8 January 2014 and Johannesburg on Saturday, 11 January 2014.
Seed Experiences, in partnership with 5FM
, are bringing Bastille – hailed as one of Britain’s most exciting new bands. Fans will be able to listin to Bad Blood
and the chart-topping Pompeii
As well as drawing the biggest crowd ever at Glastonbury's
John Peel Stage, Bastille has drawn huge numbers at many of the UK’s summer festivals and continues to play high-profile slots at many more.
Their debut album Bad Blood
is the biggest selling debut album of 2013 with near-platinum sales, and the album is one of the top 10 biggest selling albums of 2013. It was recently voted by Guardian
readers as one of their favourite albums of 2013 and the single Pompeii
has sold over one million copies and has now gone platinum.
Bastille's tour in SA takes place on Wednesday, 8 January 2014 at Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden from 19:15. There will be no bars, so fans can bring their own picnic baskets but are reminded that Kirstenbosch is bin free - whatever is brought in must be taken out. Fans are also asked to respect the peace and cleanliness of the residential areas when leaving.
Saturday, 11 January 2014 is a day festival at Emmarentia Dam from Noon. There will be food and drinks on sale, and people can also bring their own picnic baskets.
Children are welcome at both events.
