American musical act +LIVE+ is set to visit South Africa once again in November 2020 as part of their 25th Anniversary Throwing Copper Tour. 

The tour will be presented by AMP Events and +LIVE+ fans can expect to experience all the highlights from the multi-platinum band’s amazing 30-year repertoire.

The band’s impressive catalogue features some of alternative rock’s most iconic hits such as Lightning Crashes, I Alone, Selling the Drama and The Dolphin’s Cry.

+LIVE+ concerts in Cape Town, Pretoria

+LIVE+ will perform at the Grand Arena in Cape Town and the Sun Arena in Pretoria, nearly three years since they opened the Time Square venue with their sold out Reunion Tour back in 2017.

Tickets will officially go on sale via Computicket on 13 February at the same prices as 2017’s sold out shows. Prices start from R495.

In a statement, AMP events owner Andy Marc said, “Fans of +LIVE+ have always shown incredible support when this band tours SA.

“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.”

+LIVE+ original lineup

The original lineup of +LIVE+ is Ed Kowalczyk (vocals, guitar), Chad Taylor (guitar, backing vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass) and Chad Gracey (drums, percussion).

The bank hails from Pennsylvania and has sold more than 22 million albums worldwide so far.

It has also recorded two number one albums – Throwing Copper and Secret Samadhi. They have become firm favourites the world over.

Throwing Copper in particular reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and exceeded sales of 10 million albums.

The single Lightning Crashes, from the album Throwing Copper, is particularly successful, holding the number one spot at Modern Rock radio for 10 consecutive weeks.

The release of the platinum-selling The Distance to Here (1999) turned +LIVE+ into an international powerhouse and moved the band from arenas into stadiums.
