LOOK WHO’S COMING TO SOUTH AFRICA…. It’s The Fray!!! Whoop. Details below:

Big Concerts confirmed today that smash hit American rock band The Fray have confirmed 2 South African tour dates performing live in Johannesburg on 19th September 2014 at the Coca-Cola Dome and 20th September 2014 at the Grand Arena, GrandWest Cape Town. Presented by 94.7 Highveld Stereo and M-Net.

Tickets go on sale for Johannesburg and Cape Town on Friday 28th March 2014 from www.bigconcerts.co.za and Computicket.

The Fray is Isaac Slade, Joe King (guitar and vocals), Dave Welsh (guitar) and Ben Wysocki (drums). The Denver based foursome formed in 2002 after high school friends Slade and King bumped into each other at the local guitar shop. The band achieved national success with their first single ‘Over My Head’, which became a top ten hit in the U.S but the release of their second single ‘How To Save A Life’ brought them into the worldwide spotlight going double platinum and earning a 2010 Grammy nomination for their self titled release.

 

The recently released fourth album ‘Helios’, was produced by Stuart Price (The Killers, Madonna, Keane) and Ryan Tedder  (Adele and One Republic). The latest single ‘Love Don’t Die’, received critical acclaim from Billboard Magazine and is currently on the KIA Top 40 on 94.7 Highveld Stereo and 94.5 KFM.

 

Helios follows the band’s 2012 release ‘Scars and Stories’ which garnered widespread praise and was produced by Brenden O’Brian who has worked with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and Rage Against the Machine.

 

This will be the first time The Fray has performed in South Africa and fans will be treated to a concert of all their hits and more.
