I’m a real twat. I forgot to inform you a while ago that Sacramento, California based post-hardcore protagonists Dance Gavin Dance have revealed dates for their first South African tour which will take place early 2020.
The tour is proudly brought to you by JamPacked Productions. This is the fifth and final tour they promised last year to help raise R1 million in aid of wildlife conservation and anti-poaching efforts in South Africa.
Dance Gavin Dance commented on the upcoming tour
“We are extremely excited about coming to beautiful South Africa to play some amazing shows. Looking forward to meeting all the fans and touring in a place that we have never visited before.”
Jampacked Productions got a little cheeky with their announcement video
“The team wanted to try something new and the shock factor approach is something we hadn’t tried yet. We take our marketing super seriously – as you can see (LOL) – and love trying new things to bring more “gees” to our audiences. Craig wanted a new tattoo. We wanted a strong marketing campaign. Our fans wanted Dance Gavin Dance. Voila! (And besides, we thought it would be hilarious.)”
