Life seems to be returning to normal slowly but surely with yet another international act announced to tour South Africa later this year.
On Monday morning, Big Concerts announced Grammy-nominated OneRepublic will be performing live in South Africa on Tuesday 15 November at the Grand Arena in Cape Town, and on Friday 18 November at the SunBet Arena at Time Square in Pretoria.
The group also took to their official Instagram account and announced dates for their world tour, saying how thrilled they are to share the details.
The band – comprising of singer/songwriter and lead vocalist Ryan Tedder, guitarists Zach Filkins and Drew Brown, bassist and cellist Brent Kutzle, keys Brian Willett and drummer Eddie Fisher – released several hits since their debut set Dreaming Out Loud in 2007.
The 2007 release included the smash single Apologize, which shattered digital sales and airplay records worldwide and received a Grammy nomination.
Their 2013 album, Native, featured the No.1 hit and 41 million-selling single Counting Stars.
OneRepublic also released their single I Ain’t worried, featured in the Box office Blockbuster, Top Gun: Maverick in May 2022.
The song received rave reviews from listeners who watched the movie as well.
