News: George Ezra Live in SA

the perry book

UK singer-songwriter and double-platinum selling artist, George Ezra, will be joined on stage by some of our best local acts during his upcoming tour at the end of August.

Seed Experiences and 5fm are proud to announce that Beatenberg, Freshlyground, Bongeziwe Mabandla, Hot Water and BCUC have all been confirmed for various cities to support the unassuming, folk singer behind hits like “Budapest” and “Blame It On Me” during his SA Tour.

For the Durban show at the Durban Shongweni Polo Club on the 28th of August and the Cape Town show at Durbanville Racecourse on the 29th of August, Beatenberg, Hot Water and Bongeziwe Mabandla will complete the line-up. For the Johannesburg concert on the 30th of August on the Festival Lawns at Carnival City,  Freshlyground, BCUC and Bongeziwe Mabandla have been added to the mix to support George (or “Geoff” as he is known to his fans) during his set.

Ezra made headlines recently when his debut album “Wanted On Voyage” hit the one million UK sales – a mere 11 months after its release and there is no slowing down for the 22 year-old as he continues to mark a trail of sold out shows across the globe.

“Selling a million albums almost doesn’t feel real,” George told OfficialCharts.com. “I don’t actually think I’ve ever seen a million of anything. Thank you so much to anyone who has bought the album and has enjoyed it. “I always wanted to be thought of as an album artist so over everything that’s happened this means the most. Thank you.”

Wanted On Voyage has also spawned two hugely successful Top 10 singles; Budapest (Number 3) and Blame It On Me (Number 6). To date, tracks downloaded from his album total 1.31 million, have been streamed 107 million times and viewed on video streaming sites in the UK 43 million times.

With a top 10 single in 11 countries and his #1 Album, Wanted on Voyage, Ezra is already basking in world-wide success.

George was nominated for four prestigious Brit Awards, including Best Male Artist and Best British Album in 2014 and his debut album, Wanted on Voyage, has since gone double platinum in the UK and both its lead singles, “Budapest” and “Blame It On Me”, charted in the top 10.

He delighted fans with his performance at Glastonbury this year – highlights of which were shown on BBC 3 – have a look here for a small taste of what’s to come our way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1BzSmvKAVY

With over 2.5 million single sales, 105 million views on YouTube and over 235 million streams on Spotify, South African audiences will be treated to one of the biggest rising stars in music today when this massive talent hits our shores this August.
