Hilltop Live has announced the British rock band, Mumford & Sons, will be performing in South Africa in February next year. The group, known for their hits “Little Lion Man” and “I Will Wait”, will play in Cape Town on 29 January 2016 at the Grand Parade, in Durban on 3 February 2016 at the Durban Botanic Gardens and in Pretoria on 6 February at the Monument Amphitheatre.
In a statement, the band says its visit to South Africa has been a long time coming. “The last eight years have taken us to some incredible parts of the World, from Goa to Tasmania… Orkney to Walla Walla. The fact that we get to visit these places, meet fascinating and inspiring people, and play our songs everywhere we go is pretty much the whole reason we started this band in the first place – you guys know how much we love touring, we’ve mentioned it enough times!
Well, it is with great excitement, that we can announce one of our most anticipated adventures yet, South Africa! Many times we’ve tried to make it work, but this coming February, it’s happening and we couldn’t be happier about it. We’ve got a handful of shows across the country, some really great artists sharing those stages with us”.
Tickets start from R499 from Computicket, and sales open on 3 September.
