Now Or Never Tour
Fans have been yearning to see Samthing Soweto perform live for the first time in a while and it is finally happening.
Now or Never Tour will have Samthing Soweto performing some of his biggest songs coming to four different cities.
In January he asked his fans to choose songs which they think he should perform live, and many of them did.
“Thank you so much for sending the tracklist, I will announce the dates (for the tour) next week,” he said at the beginning of the year.
As it stands, Joburg and Cape Town are the first shows confirmed to be taking place, with two more coming soon.
Pretoria will be the first to kick off the tour on July 23rd.
“The Pretoria show is the Joburg show, I just decided on the State Theatre because I’ve never played there.” Says the Amagents singer.
Even though the tour will first take place in Pretoria, it is called the Joburg show, since the singer has played at the Joburg Theatre before.
Cape Town fans will get to sing along to their favourite songs by Samthing Soweto in October.
Two more Cities are to be announced, one in the Eastern Cape and hopefully Durban will also have dates announced.
Webtickets is where people can get their tickets before they sell out.
“Please don’t buy them on other sites. They cost R350 pp.” Tweeted Samthing Soweto.
