The local line-up to support British modern soul sensation John Newman, when he tours South Africa for the first time later this month, has been announced. ISO will be performing in Cape Town at the Good Hope Centre on Wednesday, 23 April and Beatenberg on Thursday, 24 April at Joburg’s Town Hall Lane in Newtown.
John Newman’s smash hit singles: Losing Sleep, Love Me Again, and Cheating have been on high rotation on 5FM and around the country, and fans are eagerly anticipating what promises to be a sizzling, roaring, swinging concert experience.
Having just released their new EP, “Passages”, ISO will perform an extra-special set, which fits the “big sound, big style” theme of the concert at the Good Hope Centre. DJ Honey Bee will complement ISO and John Newman with their electro-swing beats throughout the evening.
In Joburg, Beatenberg will bring their smooth performance along with their smash hit track, Pluto (Remember You), which has reached number one across the airwaves. These local favourites will be complemented by swing master DJ Michael Lesar who will be on the decks throughout the night playing his blend of swing-based beats for the audience to jive to.
Reviving the Good Hope Centre
Through events like John Newman Live and the forthcoming Sonar Cape Town in December this year, Seed Experiences aims to revive Cape Town’s iconic Good Hope Centre to be an epicentre of music and entertainment in the city. The venue will be transformed into what can only be described as a landscape of glitz and glamour for the concert. Newtown’s Town Hall Lane, known best for its street-culture inspired artwork, will take on a vintage flair, transporting the audience right back to the swing era, while still maintaining the edge of downtown Joburg.
