I am getting so excited, it’s not too long now until British crooner James Morrison lands on SA shores for his concerts – and it has just been announced that due to popular demand an extra concert on Thursday, 24th January 2019 at Montecasino’s Teatro has been added.
Adding local talent to the evening of soulful music is the multi-cultural band, the “Stone Jets” who are touring with James Morrison as his supporting act for this singer-songwriter’s first-time performances in this country.
Cape Town’s Stone Jets is the result of a musical partnership between bassist and vocalist Given Nkanyane and guitarist Manfred Klose. Five years on, the duo has become a trio with the addition of drummer Eduan Joubert. Known for their original sound Stone Jets create toe-tapping music, wrapped in soul and traditional elements.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the Stone Jets and to touring with these local lads. I am super excited to be playing my first gigs in a while in South Africa. I can’t wait to be on stage in Johannesburg and Cape Town, not long to go now!” says James Morrison who previously supported both Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder.
The 34-year-old singer-songwriter has sold 7 million copies of his four albums and performed five world tours. This year Morrison is releasing a brand-new album, recorded at British Grove and Metrophonic Studios and produced by Mark Taylor (Lady Gaga, Nelly Furtado, Kylie Minogue). The album sees the return of James Morrison to his soulful best.
The three-city concert tour begins at Montecasino’s Teatro with 20h00 concerts on Tuesday, 22 January, Wednesday, 23 January and now Thursday, 24 January thereafter moving to Cape Town’s Kirstenbosch Garden for one concert only at 19h00 on Saturday, 26 January 2019.
