This morning Seed Experiences were incredibly excited to be announce Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini as the new headliner for the Sowing the Seeds Music Festival in Johannesburg on the 21st of March 2015. He will also be performing two standalone shows in Cape Town at Kirstenbosch Gardens on the 18th and 19th March 2015.
Unfortunately the Ben Howard South African tour dates have been unavoidably rescheduled to July 2015. Ben Howard will now be performing in Cape Town on 22 & 23 July at the Grand Arena, Grand West and in Johannesburg on 25 July at Zoo Lake. His tour management team are sorry for any inconvenience caused but like many Ben Howard fans, they can’t wait to get out there. Patience seems to be the operative word here.

It’s always unfortunate to reschedule shows of this nature, however Seed Experiences feel very happy that they have collectively been able to make these shows happen this July. The silver lining means that they are able to welcome the outstanding Paolo Nutini to tour with us in South Africa. His shows holds great promise to wow all audiences.
As a Brit Award nominee and having topped the UK Albums Charts with his debut album, These Streets, and its follow-up, Sunny Side Up, the new album, Caustic Love, is sure to spotlight the singer’s stunning musical journey. Nutini’s incomparable voice and stage presence singles him out as, arguably, one of the greatest singers of his generation.
Just have a listen to this song, “New Shoes” and you’ll be hooked (like I was the first time I heard it +/- 7 years ago).
I have a feeling that this is going to be one of the must see shows for 2015. Mark my words.
