Multi-platinum recording artist KONGOS have added a couple regional tour dates to their recently announced headline appearance at the Oppikoppi festival in August.
Two additional KONGOS shows will take place at the Durban Botanic Gardens on the 3rd of August and at The Hillcrest Quarry for One Night in Cape Town on the 5th of August.
Great South African Local support will be on the line up in both Durban and Cape Town.
KONGOS is a South African-born American alternative rock band consisting of four brothers: Johnny (accordion, keyboards, vocals), Jesse (drums, percussion, vocals), Daniel (guitar, vocals),and Dylan KONGOS (bass guitar, lap slide guitar, vocals). They spent their childhoods in London and in South Africa. They compose and record in Phoenix, Arizona, where they have lived since 1996.*
KONGOS’ new album, Egomaniac, is set to be released on the 10th June 2016 via Just Music. Take It From Me, the first single off Egomaniac has already hit the U.S. charts. The band will be performing several songs from the new album as well as select cuts from their previous release.
The band’s album Lunatic (2012) was chock full of hits, including I’m Only Joking and Come with Me Now. Come with Me Now reached double platinum status in both the United States and Canada.
A limited number of tickets will be made available for each evening’s performance. With tickets for the 2015 One Night in Cape Town selling out weeks before the concert date, fans are encouraged to not wait to buy their tickets.
