By now most of you know that Bullet for My Valentine is coming to South Africa in August 2012. In case you forgot, they’ll be playing at Oppikoppi Sweet Thing and One Night Only in Cape Town. Their fans are getting really psyched up about this.
Some of their fans are also concerned that they might cancel before they even get here and I fully understand why. The band cancelled their show 2 days before they were bound to perform at Cokefest one year. If you ask me, I don’t think they’ll be cancelling this time around. Their last cancellation was due to them working on an a new album and as far as I know, that’s not the case this time.
I must admit that I’m not a huge fan of their music, but I do respect them as a band. And I think they’ll be delivering a kick ass performance at Oppikoppi Sweet Thing this year. Bullet for my Valentine have become renowned for their vibrant live performances over the years. Just do a YouTube search and you’ll see what I mean. I wouldn’t mind seeing them live just to see what the hype is about. I’m damn curious and I wanna see what the fuss is about.
Like I said, everyone is getting psyched up about it… This even includes the people from 7de Laan.
If you don’t believe me, watch Bullet For My Valentine rocking it out on the TV show:

If you haven’t bought tickets for Oppikoppi this year yet: Don’t forget to book your tickets to this festival early – tickets are bound to sell out (like they have in 2010 and 2011). To get your ticket to South Africa‘s premier music festival, head on over to the Standard Bank youth portal for your discounted R600 tickets.
