Music’s Greatest Stars Headed for Cape Town in 2014
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Music is my life, #lovecapetown, and in 2014, the Mother City is going to rock with a variety of Grammy-winning artists!
Reading like a Hall of Fame inductee list, our rhythm loving hometown is set to play host to the likes of rap sensation Eminem, rock ballad singer Bryan Adams, guitar maestro Carlos Santana and the legendary Bruce Springsteen from January to February 2014.
Adams, adored for his hits “Summer of 69“ and “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You”, will bring his Bare Bones tour to the Grand West Casino and Entertainment World’s Grand Arena on Tuesday 28 January, 2014 while Springsteen, famous for chart-toppers “Born To Run” and “Thunder Road” will set his fans’ hearts racing at the Bellville Velodrome on Sunday 26, Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 January, 2014.
Eminem was the hero of my youth, friends, so you can only imagine how insanely excited I am to lose myself with the real Slim Shady at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday 26 February, 2014. Then, it’s time to jam and get our Latin rock music love on with Carlos Santana and his band, who’ve been since around the 1960s, at the Grand Arena on Tuesday 25, Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 February, 2014.
Here’s a taste of what to expect from the awesome foursome in 2014:
