“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 our shores for the first time and will perform two live shows in Cape Town on 8 January 2014 and Johannesburg on 11 January 2014.
Seed Experiences, in partnership with 5FM, are bringing Bastille – hailed as one of Britain’s most exciting new bands. Fans will rock out to ‘Bad Blood’, ‘Overjoyed’, ‘Flaws’ and the chart-topping ‘Pompeii’ in the magnificent surrounds of SA’s greenest festival locations.
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 the year with near-platinum sales, and the album is one of the top 10 biggest selling albums of the year. It was recently voted by Guardian readers as one of their favourite albums of 2013 and the single ‘Pompeii’ has sold over 1,000,000 copies and has now gone platinum.
Entertainment powerhouse 5FM is synonymous for bringing the best in music entertainment to their fans and has been at the forefront of supporting Bastille since breaking their single in 2012. It’s also no surprise that award-winning experiential marketing agency, Seed Experiences, would choose a groundbreaking act like Bastille to grow and diversify its portfolio of music events.
About the tour venues and dates:
