Johannesburg, South Africa: Swiss melodic metal/metalcore band Dreamshade is returning to South Africa for three shows following it’s first visit in 2014. Hosted by Plug Music Agency and PureGrainAudio, the tour marks an entry into the South African live entertainment market for the two brands.
“We’ve been wanting to get to play South Africa since our past tour in 2014. Now the time has finally come. Me and the guys really can’t wait to meet all our fans and friends to finally party together big time! Help us spread the word about the tour and prepare to have a great time!” ~ Fernando “Fella” Di Cicco (guitar/vocals, Dreamshade)
The band’s earlier tour was hosted in 2014 by Favour The Brave, the founder of which is now teamed up with Plug Music Agency.
“I decided to get back into tour booking and hooked up with Plug Music Agency. It made total sense to immediately invite Dreamshade back to SA and well, yeah, here we are. Today we announced a really special tour for 2019.” ~ Ashley De Beer
Dreamshade‘s 2014 visit followed on the release of its highly acclaimed The Gift of Life album. The band has since released another album with Vibrant in 2016, and is reported to be working on new material for a fourth offering in the not-too-distant future.
