Please note: this event has been postponed to November 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

Have you heard? The legendary British-Irish band, The Waterboys, are heading to South Africa this April to perform live at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in Cape Town and Casalinga in Muldersdrift. 

The Waterboys Are Coming To SA!

Breakout Events is excited to announce The Waterboys live in South Africa. Catch them live in Cape Town at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens on Friday 03 April 2020, and in Johannesburg at Casalinga on Sunday 05 April 2020.

Few bands have as great a live reputation as The Waterboys. From their mid-1980s “big music” period through the influential mix of Celtic, gospel and country on their classic Fisherman’s Blues and Room to Roam tours, to the hundreds of brilliant shows accompanying the rootsy, soulful triptych of albums This is the Sea, A Pagan Place and Fisherman’s Blues – The Waterboys have consistently blended tightness, inspiration and improvisation to reach heights of performance few other acts can.

The 2020 version of the band features the established core of Mike Scott (vocals, guitar, piano), Steve Wickham (electric fiddle), Memphis keyboard great “Brother” Paul Brown, ace British drummer Ralph Salmins and funky Irish bassman Aongus Ralston.

The Waterboys Live at Casalinga

Meanwhile, the relevance and popular reach of The Waterboys has never been greater. Their songs have been used in key shows such as Ray Donovan and The Affair, as well as being performed by artists as varied as U2, War on Drugs and Ellie Goulding, who scored a top 3 UK hit with “How Long Will I Love You”; Prince and U2, who sang The Whole Of The Moon onstage; Fiona Apple, who recorded it last year and classic singers Tom Jones and Rod Stewart. Irish magazine, Hot Press also listed The Waterboys as the best rock ‘n’ roll band in the world.

The Waterboys’ music shows no sign of fading, and the very best place to experience it is live.
