With a killer Glastonbury set under his belt and only two weeks to go before his first ever South African Tour, double Brit Award winner and platinum selling artist, Ben Howard’s tour to our country just got even better with two incredible local support acts now confirmed.

The one-time journalist, avid surfer and incredible musician will be joined on stage by Bye Beneco for both cities and Farryl Purkiss during his Johannesburg show.

Limited seating for both Cape Town shows are available to all ticket holders and ticket purchasers.  The opportunity to switch a general admission (standing) ticket to a specifically allocated seating ticket is offered on a first come, first served basis, while seating is still available. Current ticket holders will have until the 13th July 2015 at 16:00 to take up this opportunity. For an easy “how to guide” Cape Town ticket holders who wish to change their tickets to seated ones, can go to here or contact Webtickets.

All tickets (including seated tickets for the Cape Town shows) are on sale through Webtickets and www.seedtickets.co.za

Johannesburg ticket holders will be delighted to know that we have partnered with Park and Ride SA (Pty) Ltd to make transportation to the Zoo Lake show safe, quick and super convenient. Fans are encouraged to make use of this option as there will be many advantages, including a separate entrance at the show to avoid long queues. Tickets on sale now right here.
