Prime Circle takes ‘PRETTY LIKE THE SUN’ on the road
The multi-award winning rock band, Prime Circle is taking to the road with a nation wide tour exciting fans across South Africa with performances in Namibia, Jo’burg, Durban, Cape Town, East London, George, Plettenberg Bay and more.
The Pretty Like The Sun Tour will include 15 shows from 8 December ‘17 to 7 January ’18. The series of concerts is named off the hot single, Pretty Like The Sun which will follow The Gift as the second most played radio tune from their latest album, If You Don’t You Never Will.
If You Don’t You Never Will is Prime Circle’s seventh studio album, and their first new recording since their acclaimed 2014 release Let the Night In, which was repackaged as a deluxe edition in 2016.
Regarded as South African rock royalty, with a string of awards and sold-out concerts to their credit, the band has spent the past couple of years ratcheting up its international profile, building a solid following in the tough-to-crack and discerning German market in particular.
Prime Circle may have secured a German agent and an international recording deal, yet their roots remain firmly lodged in South Africa – which is why they are giving local fans first dibs at hearing their new material.
For Prime Circle, though, there’s clearly no time like the present to seize the day – and make the dreams and opportunities happen for themselves.
Prime Circle’s line-up is Ross Learmonth (vocals and guitar); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboard) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar).
