+LIVE+ ANNOUNCE NEW 2021 TOUR DATES
US Rock band will now be performing in Cape Town on 2 November and in Pretoria on 5 & 6 November 2021.
All tickets purchased for the 2020 concerts are valid for the new 2021 dates.
“While we’re disappointed at not being able to produce the concerts for this year, we’re thrilled not to have to cancel them and look forward to having +LIVE+ back in South Africa in 2021” says Andy Mac, owner of AMP Events. “The safety of our fans and customers comes first, and along with +LIVE+, we wanted to make sure the shows were a premium event in-line with the realities of Covid19.”
As one of the most successful and enduring alternative bands of the last thirty years, +LIVE+ has a catalogue featuring some of alternative rock’s most iconic hits, including “Lightning Crashes”, “I Alone”, “Selling the Drama”, “The Dolphin’s Cry”, “Overcome” and “Heaven” many of which have been responsible for shaping the musical landscape for alternative rock around the globe.
“There is a silver lining to this cloud,” says Mac. “We’ll keep the ticket prices for 2021 at the current low prices they were selling for to ensure the experience is fair for all fans. The dates have shifted, but the venues remain the same.”
This 2021 tour sees +LIVE+ returning to the Grand Arena in Cape Town and the Sun Arena in Pretoria almost 4 yrs. to the day since they opened the Time Square venue with their SOLD-OUT Reunion Tour back in 2017.

The multi-platinum band from Pennsylvania have sold over 22 million albums worldwide and earned two number one albums (Throwing Copper, Secret Samadhi). Their catalog is filled with such gems as “Lightning Crashes,” “I Alone,” “All Over You,” and “Lakini’s Juice,” which live on today as classics at rock radio. Throwing Copper produced the band’s biggest single, “Lightning Crashes,” which was #1 at Modern Rock radio for 10 consecutive weeks. Throwing Copper reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually surpassed sales of 10 million albums sold with Rolling Stone honoring the album with placement on their “1994: The 40 Best Records From Mainstream Alternative’s Greatest Year.” Secret Samadhi (1997) immediately shot to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went double platinum. The release of the platinum-selling The Distance to Here (1999) turned +LIVE+ into an international powerhouse and moved the band from arenas into stadiums. +LIVE+ has been and remains today a global concert juggernaut.
