Top SA bands to open for Bastille

British band Bastille will soon land in South Africa for a three-city tour. The band that wowed the world with the smash album Bad Blood and the massive global hit Pompeii won’t be the only top act entertaining Cape Town, Joburg and Durban; several top local bands will be blasting out their hits as opening acts.

Singer songwriter Matthew Mole will be performing at all three concerts. Mole has been nothing short of a sensation on the local music scene since his “arrival” in 2012. Adding to the line-up in Cape Town and Johannesburg is Opposite The Other. The young band has quickly risen to musical fame with their first ever single ‘Ride Away’ charting at No. 8 on the Spotify Global Viral Charts. The band most recently opened for The Lumineers (USA) on the SA leg of their Cleopatra World Tour and have shared the stage with artists such as Jeremy Loops, Matthew Mole, Beatenberg, Al Bairre & Gangs of Ballet.

Durban will be a tour highlight for Bastille lead singer Dan Smith as his parents met in the coastal city. Supporting acts to open for Bastille in Durban include Tresor and Matthew Mole. Tresor, which is French for ‘treasure’, is South Africa’s very own special treasure. Formerly working as an informal car guard, Tresor shows glimpses of his own life experiences in his music, but not at the cost of happiness. His bouncy tunes are well-loved by thousands of fans, so much so that he went platinum in 2015.

Monark, a four-piece band that burst onto the South African music scene in 2013, will be delivering their stirring vocals through their signature cinematic pop tunes to fans in Johannesburg.
