American rock group live have a massive fan base here in Mzansi so it’s no surprise that the group will be heading back to the country this November for two shows where they will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of their game-changing album ‘Throwing Copper’.
As one of the most successful and enduring alternative bands of the last thirty years, +LIVE+ has a catalogue featuring some of alternative rock’s most iconic hits, including “Lightning Crashes”, “I Alone”, “Selling the Drama”, “The Dolphin’s Cry”, “Overcome” and “Heaven” many of which have been responsible for shaping the musical landscape for alternative rock around the globe.
“Fans of +LIVE+ have always shown incredible support when this band tours SA” says AMP owner Andy Mac “Tickets sell-out in record time. Every time. The decision to keep ticket prices at 2017 level is our way of thanking the fans for always having our backs and supporting us in our vision for more Rock n Roll in SA. Being able to bring bands with a legacy, such as +LIVE+, is the reason I started AMP Events in the first place, and I can’t wait to see them back on stage!”.
The multi-platinum band from Pennsylvania have sold over 22 million albums worldwide and earned two number one albums (Throwing Copper, Secret Samadhi). Their catalog is filled with such gems as “Lightning Crashes,” “I Alone,” “All Over You,” and “Lakini’s Juice,” which live on today as classics at rock radio.
