So we heard a little something something this morning…. Lamb of God will be performing two shows in early 2014. Once again, Durban and the other centres lose out, but Cape Town and Johannesburg will each have a show.
The details are still a bit sketchy, the dates don’t seem finalized but what we have heard is 24 January 2014 is one of the dates.
The venue set for Cape Town is Hillcrest Quarry – Hillcrest Wine Estate, in the Western Cape. No further info has been posted for JHB as yet, we will keep you posted if we hear anything.
Ticket prices set to be around R450-R550 looks like ticket sales will start on 25 July, according to computicket page. We are however starting to wonder if this didn’t go online a little too early by mistake, only time will tell.
Support artists listed are Mind Assault and The Drift
Event Type: Music, Hard Rock And Metal
Heavy Metal supporters in the Republic of South Africa have held their breath since early in 2012 when rumours first emerged that a local appearance by USA metal titans Lamb Of God was imminent. Hopes were dashed later that year when the remainder of the bands tour was cancelled in mid-2012 and activity curbed to within United States borders up until June this year. In fulfilling an old promise, Lamb Of God are finally on the road and catching up on a major back log of shows across the globe. The great news for South Africa is that two dates have been squeezed into the bands cram-packed touring schedule for early 2014. “With only two dates available, we`ll be touring them to Cape Town and Johannesburg,“ said Dawid Fourie of RAM Touring, “and we`re expecting that by playing those two cities, the maximum number of fans will get an opportunity to begin planning early for a trip to one of the larger centres.“ Lamb Of God, from the State of Virginia in the USA, were formed in 1990 with current members John Campbell on bass, Mark Morton on Guitar, and the legendary Chris Adler on Drums. Vocalist Randy Blythe joined in 1995 and drummer Chris`s brother Willie Adler replaced Abe Spear on guitar in 1999, resulting in the current line-up which spans more than a decade; and introducing the electrifying chemistry which has launched a successful career for the band we see today.
