UK super-group Rudimental was due to head back to South Africa in April 2019 on their Toast To Our Differences world tour, but sadly it has been cancelled.
Organizers are in the process of securing dates for a tour later in the year. Ticket holders have been contacted and will be refunded in full.
The splash would have celebrated the release of their new album which dropped in January 2019.
The tour would have seen the band play across Europe, before heading to Pretoria’s Sun Arena @ Time Square in Pretoria on 3 April, and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in Cape Town on 5 April 2019.
The genre-defying, multi-cultural collective boast world-conquering stats: over 1.4 billion global streams, 20 million single sales, 40 platinum awards, 700 million YouTube views and a global audience of 1.5 million+ across their social platforms.
Their 2018 smash hit, These Days, featuring Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen, has racked up more than 2.4 million sales worldwide, making it the UK’s biggest-selling single of 2018. It’s also been nominated as a contender for Best British Single and Best British Video at the upcoming 2019 BRIT Awards.
South Africa has a special place in our hearts,” enthuses the band. “We’re so excited to come back in April. Let’s have a party!”
Last year, Rudimental, Major Lazer, Anne-Marie and Mr Eazi were in Johannesburg to film the music video for Let Me Live, which also featured additional vocals from the five-time Grammy-winning Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
Shot across Jozi and London, the striking music video brims with local flavour, featuring shots of Pantsula dancers directed by South African filmmaker Chris Saunders.
