My experience at the Dome with The Killers

Okay so I’ve done a few concerts in my short career, I’ve met some really interesting and some really difficult people along the way. (Rockers are the most difficult). So last night I went off to the Coca-Cola Dome in Jozi for The Killers concert- and let me tell you it was one of the most challenging working experiences I’ve had. Let me firstly say these guys are a big deal, they’re a great band. They sing songs that will forever hold fond memories of my wild, fun varsity days- that coming from someone who doesn’t really enjoy rock. My preference is more urban style music. These guys however are cool and I really do enjoy them. When I first found of about their tour details, I was ecstatic. I ‘youtubed’ concert performances, watched interviews etc and from what I saw, we were all in for a treat.

John Legend interview ahead of his tour to SA

If you know me, then you’ll know that John Legend is one of my favourite artists of all time. I have all of his albums and a DVD. I just think his voice is so soulful, his lyrics so meaningful and I love the perfect mix of soppy ballady-type songs to uptempo R&B hits like Green Light. So when I got the news that I was given an interview with him, I was ecstatic and nervous too! So reinforcing the fact that he is only human and that I interact with other humans all the time made me feel better. The interview went well (I think) and i thoroughly enjoyed talking to him so take a listen below and let me know your thoughts. Don’t forget he, together with Keri Hilson will be touring SA as of next week, so be sure to get your tickets yeah!
