Passenger heads to South Africa in 2019

“I had the most incredible time opening up for Ed in South Africa. I couldn’t believe how lovely the crowd were and the response online has been completely insane! I really can’t wait to come back and play my own shows in November!!”

After an exceptional response from his support slot at Ed Sheeran, Passenger has confirmed a solo tour in South Africa for his fans.

There have always been two sides to Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger: the epic, radio-friendly sound represented by his international number one single, ‘Let Her Go’, and his UK number one album, ‘Young as the Morning, Old as the Sea’, and the more introverted, singer-songwriter side heard, for instance on ‘Whispers II’ and ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’.

The new album, ‘Runaway’, finds Passenger embracing the epic once again: the melodies are unforgettable, the choruses colossal. The album, Rosenberg’s tenth in 11 years, was recorded between the UK and Australia with his co-producer, Chris Vallejo, but its aesthetic is North American. Some of the lyrics refer to specific locations, such as Detroit or Yellowstone.

Passenger has come a long way since the release of his first album back in 2007. The initial incarnation, in which Rosenberg was backed by a full band, was followed by his reinvention as a solo artist and a period of busking, largely in Australia and New Zealand. Then came a year touring the world in support of Ed Sheeran. And then ‘Let Her Go’ – followed. Rosenberg smiles, by ‘two years running around the world after that song’. He had to run fast: the song, for which Rosenberg won an Ivor Novello, is approaching two billion plays on YouTube.
