James Blunt Press Session 2013

If you’ll pardon the pun, but I’m not particularly ‘over the moon’ about this tour announcement, but many people will be. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a nice dude. His music just doesn’t appeal to me anymore. #NoHate. Big Concerts has announced that James Blunt will be heading back to South Africa next February. His Moon Landing tour drops by Mzansi on the 12th, 14th and 15th of February. The tour kicks off in Cape Town, followed by two gigs at Carnival City. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am.

Watch: James Blunt performs in Johannesburg

UK singer/ songwriter James Blunt performed to over 10 000 fans at the Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg at the weekend. This marked his second tour to the country in three years. Look, I’ll be honest I was a James Blunt fan for about as long as the hit single “You’re Beautiful” was on radio (before being overplayed). So I wasn’t totally excited to see him again, but I respect the fans who do still like him and judging by their response, they were stoked to see him too. Did you go? Who in Cape Town is going to the show tomorrow night? Give me and others reading this your thoughts.
