Great news! Legendary South African rock band Wonderboom have been announced as the opening act for Guns N’ Roses (who are heading to South Africa for one show only at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on the 29th of November 2018).
Guns N’ Roses and their unstoppable and massively successful Not In This Lifetime Tour continues to dominate the rock music world in 2018 and beyond with 13 stadium shows lined up across Europe, festival headline slots at Download Festival UK, Paris and Madrid, Italy’s Firenze Rocks and Belgium’s Graspop Metal Meeting. They are also playing 7 dates across Indonesia, The Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi.
Produced by Live Nation, the first European leg of the Not In This Lifetime Tour sold over 1 million tickets in 2017 to their widespread fan base, becoming the year’s most successful tour and proving beyond a doubt that the attitude, spirit and influence of both Guns N’ Roses and the rock & roll genre are as strong as ever. Since it kicked off in 2016, the Not In This Lifetime Tour has performed an exhilarating 149 shows to over 5.2 million fans around the world.
It’s great that Wonderboom have been announced as the opening act for Guns N’ Roses…
Wonderboom have been around for 22 years and it’s no small feat to be hailed as one of South Africa’s most legendary rock bands, and still going strong. To date, they have released 9 albums, headlined many major South African festivals and have been nominated for 5 Best Rock Album awards in the South African Music Awards (SAMAs). They also won the South African leg of the 2004 Global Battle of the Bands & came second worldwide at the finals in the London Astoria!
There can be few South African music fans that aren’t familiar with their hits, like Never Ever, Jafta Rebel, Something Wrong, Green Fever, Africa, Shadows, Charlie, It’s Great to be Alive, Best Side, On The Radio, Karaoke Bar and now Ooh La La.
