It’s been a bumper year for concerts in South Africa and there’s more on the way. Josh Groban is the next big international star who’ll be visiting our shores. Cape Town fans can see the popular singer live in concert at the GrandWest Arena on 29 and 30 November 2011. He’ll also be performing at Sun City on 26 and 27 November 2011.
With worldwide sales of over 25 million albums, including 750,000 in South Africa, Josh Groban is one of the biggest stars on the music scene today. In his ten year career, he has racked up over a dozen awards nominations and he has performed with superstars like Barbra Streisand, Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion. The latest album ‘Illuminations’ which features the tracks ‘Hidden Away’, ‘Bells of New York City’ and ‘Higher Window’ has already reached platinum status in South Africa.
But it’s not all about the music for Josh Groban. In 2004, he was appointed by Nelson Mandela as an official ambassador for Madiba’s Project 46664. Through his own foundation, Groban has continued working with other charity organisations in South Africa as well.
Tickets for the concerts are available from Computicket. Prices for the Cape Town shows start at R350 each, while tickets for the Sun City concerts range from R400 each. The Josh Groban South African tour is brought to you by Big Concerts, M-Net, 567 CapeTalk and Talk Radio 702.
