American folk rock stars The Lumineers are to make their South African debut when they perform at Cape Town’s Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on 4 December and at Joburg’s Emmarentia Dam for a daytime concert on 6 December, 2014.
The Lumineers became a success story in their native US with their 2011 eponymous debut album, which gave the band international recognition, selling over 3 million copies, and over 5.5 million single downloads of their debut single – and arguably the band’s most famous song to date: Ho Hey. The music video for Ho Hey has already gained over 109 million YouTube views alone. The band was nominated for both Best New Artist and Best Americana Album at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Their music has been described as classic and genuine, raw and unique. They mix flavours of folk, alternative rock, Americana and indie, cutting them with a rustic charm.
Their second single, Stubborn Love, is a live favourite of the band’s and will be sure to get their South African fans singing along to the powerful chorus.
The supporting line-up will be announced soon, so stay close to Seed Experiences, Virgin Mobile SA and 5FM on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
