Big Concerts has confirmed that South Africa’s number one acoustic rock band, Watershed, will support Roxette on the South African leg of their celebrated world tour ‘XXX – The 30th Anniversary Tour’.
Since their breakthrough in 2000 with their single, ‘Indigo Girl,’ South African rock icons Watershed have solidified their reputation as one of the most respected and decorated bands to come out of the southern tip of Africa. Their distinctive melodic guitar sounds blend with the sultry tones of lead singer and songwriter, Craig Hinds, voice to create a soothing and classic rock sound that is easily recognisable and yet utterly unique. Their albums and singles have consistently been rewarded with gold and platinum status both locally and abroad.
Roxette’s on-going world tour will lead up to the celebration of the band’s 30th anniversary in 2016. “XXX – The 30th Anniversary Tour” has been celebrated by critics and fans all over the world, and the band has sold out several legendary arenas such as The O2 Arena in London, Olympia in Paris and Olympiahalle in Munich. The ultimate Roxette collection ”Roxette XXX – the 30 biggest hits” is on sale now in support of the tour.
2016 sees Roxette kicking off their 30th Anniversary Year and the South African tour dates, in Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, mark the start of this very special year in Roxette’s record breaking history.
