Big Concerts yesterday confirmed that much celebrated group, The Lumineers will be coming to South Africa to make a bit of fuss around their latest album release, Cleopatra. They will be performing in Cape Town on 26th April 2017 at Green Point Park and 28th April 2017 at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg. Presented by 5FM and Channel 24 this is another Big Concerts Experience.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow Friday 9th September at 9am. Go to www.bigconcerts.com for all the information. 

It took four years for The Lumineers to follow up their platinum-plus, self-titled debut – which spent 46 weeks on The Billboard 200 and peaked at number 2 – but Cleopatra is well worth the wait. The band’s self-titled debut album sold 3 million copies worldwide and earned them 2 Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Americana Album.  The first single “Ho Hey” spent 62 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and it’s follow up, “Stubborn Love” climbed to #1 on the Alternative radio charts and was also featured on President Obama’s Summer Playlist.

Continuing the success story from their two-time Grammy nominated, platinum-selling debut in 2012, The Lumineers’ Cleopatra has been an international hit album – not only achieving No.1 status in the UK, U.S & Canada Official Charts, but also charting at the top of the Billboard Top 200.

Their second album Cleopatra proved Schultz and Fraites – along with cellist/vocalist Neyla Pekarek – are neither taking their good fortune for granted, nor sitting back on their laurels. With the help of producer Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers, The Avett Brothers) the band ensconced themselves in a recording in Clubhouse, a recording studio high atop a hill in rural Rhinebeck, N.Y. Influences for the album include Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen.
