Cape Town – SOLD OUT – Saturday 10 November
Johannesburg – Sunday 11 November
Platinum selling singer/songwriter and Britain’s Got Talent finalist, Calum Scott last month announced the South African dates for his ‘Only Human’ Tour in November with performances in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Following an overwhelming response from Durban fans via social media, Calum Scott has felt the love from KZN and has added 9 November at the Durban Botanic Gardens to the SA tour.
“I love announcing news and watching it spread like wildfire! When I announced my shows in South Africa, the response to my first ever shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town was incredible, but I kept seeing how much people wanted me to play in Durban too… The fans spoke, I listened! That is the reason I have added a show in Durban – I live to please my fans, so I cannot WAIT to play to such amazing and supportive fans! Counting down the days already,” said an ecstatic Calum Scott.
Tickets for the Durban show go on sale today, Monday 20 August, at 9am from https://sheer.nutickets.co.za/.
Tickets for the Cape Town show have SOLD OUT already, so Durban fans should be ready to grab their tickets quickly as well.
Scott’s heart-warming appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 shot him to instant global stardom, and when he officially released his audition song ‘Dancing On My Own’ as the lead single from his debut album Only Human, it took the world by storm. ‘Dancing On My Own’ quickly charted in over 34 countries on Spotify, peaking at No. 1 on the Viral chart in six, including the U.S. Now certified Platinum in four countries, 3 X PLATINUM in South Africa, it was the best-selling U.K. single of 2016 by a British solo artist and was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single. The song has over 550 million streams worldwide, while views of the video are approaching 225 million.
Watch Calum Scott’s incredible live performance of his hit singles ‘You Are The Reason’ and ‘Dancing On My Own’.
Only Human is the result of a long, cathartic songwriting journey. The album has already gone GOLD in South Africa, with single ‘You Are The Reason’ reaching 3 X PLATINUM in SA. Filled with deeply personal material, Scott’s ability to transform pain into beauty is undeniable, whether he is addressing coming out to his father, unrequited longing, adolescent isolation, or the gratitude he feels toward his sister Jade, who pushed him to sing on stage for the first time and auditioned alongside him on Britain’s Got Talent.
Scott’s elegantly sculpted pop centres on his soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, exemplified in gently uplifting single ‘You Are The Reason, aching piano ballad ‘Hotel Room’ and hit single ‘Rhythm Inside’. The singer’s ability to consistently build on his gift for poignant, emotionally charged performances is a sure sign of the lasting impact the Englishman will continue to have on all who hear his voice. To experience it in the flesh is unmissable.
‘Scott’s stunningly pure voice is affecting enough in itself, but his lyrics on every one of the [album’s] tracks are vulnerable and raw.’ – Billboard
‘[‘No Matter What’] left concert goers captivated as Scott’s voice radiated throughout a silent crowd. Upon finishing the song, Scott couldn’t hold his emotions back and walked to the back of the stage to dry his eyes as he received one of the biggest ovations of the night.’ – The Courier Online
