What Is It?

One of the world’s greatest music acts, +LIVE+, has announced they will return to South Africa as part of their 25th Anniversary Throwing Copper Tour has been postponed to November 2021. Presented by AMP Events, the show promises to feature all the highlights from the multi-platinum band’s incredible 30-year repertoire.

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.

This tour sees +LIVE+ returning to the Grand Arena in Cape Town and the Sun Arena in Pretoria almost three years to the day since they opened the Time Square venue with their SOLD-OUT Reunion Tour back in 2017.

To mark the occasion, AMP Events have chosen to keep ticket prices unchanged, so fans will be able to pick up tickets for the exact same price as the sold-out 2017 shows!

“Fans of +LIVE+ have always shown incredible support when this band tours SA” says AMP owner Andy Mac “Tickets sell-out in record time. Every time. The decision to keep ticket prices at 2017 level is our way of thanking the fans for always having our backs and supporting us in our vision for more Rock n Roll in SA. Being able to bring bands with a legacy, such as +LIVE+, is the reason I started AMP Events in the first place, and I can’t wait to see them back on stage!”

South African House Music Is Growing!

The South African House music scene keeps growing, evolving and reinventing itself. House music is consists of many sub-genres, but Gqom and Amapiano currently have party goers ‘doing the most’, as they would say. However, there are music fanatics that'll argue that the two sub-genres take their roots from kwaito.

Gqom and Amapiano are undoubtedly the most played and spoken about genres in the South African music industry. Even though the two genres come from opposite sides of the house music spectrum, they both emerged from the townships in Durban and Pretoria, respectively.

qqom & amapiano

A Little Background On The Origins of Gqom & Amapiano

iGqom was created in the backrooms of then up-and-coming house producers in Durban and found an audience in people who lived in the townships. This genre of electronic dance music emerged in the early 2010s. It developed out of South African house music, Kwaito and Hip-Hop. Gqom is typified by minimal, raw and repetitive sound with heavy bass beats. The gqom sound was popularised by artist like DJ Tira, Destruction Boyz and Babes Wodumo to name a few.

From taxi rides in Soshanguve and Mamelodi to street bashes in Mapetla and Mohlakeng, the Amapiano sound is re-forming the sound of house music in South Africa. Amapiano is a new sound which seems to have originated in Pretoria. The sound which is known as "Amapiano" is a mix of deep house, Qqom all mixed in with the jazzy, soulful sound of the piano. Pioneers in the Amapiano sound include Dj Maphorisa, Kabza de Small and Dj Sumbody.

The two genres have taken music in South Africa to another level, each sound captures the evolution of music culture that is inspired by the township life. The sounds of Gqom and Amapiano are not only locally recognised but have inspired international artists and DJs who have either drawn inspiration from the sound or dance moves associated with the genres.

Don't Miss The All Stars Qqom & Amapiano Concert!

The Gqom and Amapiano Concert, brought to you by Quaver Events, will feature the top artists and DJs representing either the 013 or 012 sound, showcasing the best that Durban and Pretoria have to offer. The lineup includes performances from DJ Tira, Naak Musiq, Vigro Deep, DJ Sumbody, Destruction Boyz, Professor, Lamiez Holworthy, Da Josh, DJ Cndo, DJ Maphorisa, Team Mosha, Dr Malinga, Kabza Da Small, Jazzi Desciples and many more. Zodwa wa Bantu and Liquid Metsi will be your hosts for the evening.
