Music fans across the country are set for a winter warmer in a couple of months, as US hip-hop giant Post Malone comes to South Africa for his first ever performance on our shores.
Post Malone’s album Beerbongs and Bentleys topped US, UK and various worldwide charts. The rapper, who was once seen as an unconventional artist in his genre, broke down barriers in order to become a household name.
He was nominated for four Grammy Awards this year and is best known for anthems such as Rock Star and Better Now. Over the past 12 months, South Africa has been able to bring some of the biggest names to perform here live, and thanks to Castle Lite, the trend has continued.
The beer producers revealed that Post Malone would be headlining their #CastleLiteUnlocks event in Johannesburg. The company has resolved to book at least one artist who has never played South Africa before, and they’ve pulled something epic out of the fridge here. Here’s everything you need to know about Posty’s visit:
Post Malone in SA – everything you need to know:
What dates will Post Malone be live in South Africa?
We reckon you’ve got about two-and-a-half months to get your sick days booked in from work: He’ll be performing on Tuesday 18 June only.
Where will Post Malone perform in South Africa?
He will perform live at the TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg for both dates. This is not part of Malone’s world tour, so it’s unlikely he’ll branch out to any other city. We can already hear the sound of jealousy emanating from Cape Town!
How can I book tickets?
On Thursday 4 April, WebTickets will be the place you need to visit in order to get your tickets. They went on sale at 12 noon via the website.
After a nervous wait, the page has officially gone live at the scheduled time and by visiting this link, you can now grab your chance to see Posty perform in SA! But be warned, the website is already experiencing a few technical difficulties due to high demand.
