Top SA Rock Band Prime Circle to Perform at Emnotweni on 3 May
True to its promise to bring South Africa’s biggest entertainers and bands to the Lowveld, Emnotweni announces that gracing the stage on the 3rd of May is multiple award-winning rock band Prime Circle.
Fans will no doubt be blown-away by their show which will feature songs from their latest album, Evidence, which was released in 2012 and many more of the popular hits that have made them a household name.
Evidence has seen the band confirm their staying power in a fickle industry. But more than that, it marks a progression of their sound, and a collision of several strands of dynamic tension and creativity, into a cohesive, often exhilarating whole.
Much of the impetus for the album can be traced back to Prime Circle’s movements since the release of Jekyll & Hyde in 2010. Acknowledged by the band as a “risky” album, it nonetheless achieved platinum status and picked up a Best English Rock Album SAMA in 2011 as well as an MK Award for Best International Breakthrough Act.
This album is very much geared at being played live, as Prime Circle view themselves as “nomadic” musicians who love being on the road. That’s why they’re writing material that they’ll get a kick out of playing on stage night after night, and that they can chop and change at whim – “like Lego bricks”.
“We’re not playing by the rules on this one. We’re still making music after all this time and are proudly doing our thing in South Africa, after many other rock bands have come and gone,” says Prime Circle singer and principle songwriter, Ross Learmonth.
Emnotweni Casino’s Director of Operations and Complex General Manager, Ig Olivier says a capacity crowd is expected for the show.
“We’re only two weeks away from the concert. We urge fans to book fast if they don’t want to miss this prolific rock band live right here in Nelspruit, on the new Arena’s stage for the first time.”
The show will kick off at 19:00 but the doors to the Arena will open early. Tickets cost R100 per person and are available at the Casino’s Customer Services Desk.
