John Newman’s international success continues with the UK modern soul sensation’s first highly anticipated tour to South Africa. Always happy to give South Africans great music, presenting partner Virgin Mobile, radio powerhouse 5FM and Seed Experiences have announced that John Newman will now perform live in concert on Thursday 24 April at Joburg’s Town Hall Lane, Newtown. Due to unforeseen global tour rescheduling, the Joburg show set to take place at Sowing the Seeds Music Festival, has been moved to a one-night performance in Joburg.

“Working together with John Newman’s management and booking agency to find a solution that best suits everyone especially the fans, John Newman will now perform a day earlier in Joburg. We believe he is perfectly suited to an urban concert experience and along with Virgin Mobile our presenting partner, we look forward to bringing his fans a night to remember,” says Brian Little, Seed Experiences managing director. “True to our brand heritage, Virgin Mobile loves music – it’s in our DNA. That’s why we’re excited to be bringing the latest music to eager fans, by being involved in urban concert events such as the John Newman SA tour.

Through our partnership with Seed Experiences we aim to give concert goers a unique Virgin Mobile experience to remember,” says Jason Hair, Virgin Mobile Chief Operating Officer. “Along with our partners Virgin Mobile and 5FM, we can now give our South African fans the opportunity to enjoy one of two great John Newman experiences in Cape Town and Joburg. Fresh from the recent successes of a sold-out Bastille SA tour and the highly praised Olmeca presents Mad Decent Block Party, Seed Experiences continues their momentum by producing a John Newman concert event like no other.

Be ready for a sizzling, swinging, roaring music experience; with décor, lighting and production to match. It’s the return of the era of big sound and big style. As one British music review put it: “Hearing John Newman live, you’re truly in the presence of something big. It’s as mesmerising as it is memorable”. The UK “blue-eyed boy” has burst onto the international music scene and critics and fans alike are calling John Newman the new voice of modern soul.

His breakthrough sound, catchy lyrics and unique voice are filling the airwaves from London to Los Angeles. The four-time Brit award nominee – including for Best British Male Solo Artist and Best British Single – is best known for his infectious tracks ‘Losing Sleep’, ‘Love Me Again’ and ‘Cheating’. ‘Love Me Again’ has already sold over two million singles worldwide, peaked at no. 1 on iTunes and charts in several countries, and has racked up a whopping one hundred million views on YouTube.

This is not a music event you want to miss. So dress the part, get your swing on and prepare to be mesmerised by John Newman live in concert, presented by Virgin Mobile, powered by 5FM. A stellar local supporting lineup will be announced soon; stay close to Seed Experiences on Facebook and Twitter for all the news and tune into 5FM for updates and chances to win tickets.
