Cape Town - Speculation abounds again about an influx of pop stars to South Africa, with superstars Beyoncé and Britney Spears in the mix.
In its most recent issue, Heat magazine reports “industry sources” as saying there are plans to bring the two to South Africa next year. However, local concert promoters are keeping mum. The magazine published no sources for its story.
People tweeted with joy at the speculation, however.
Stephanie Nicolls (@StephVNicolls): “Beyoncé and Britney in talks to tour South Africa??? That s**t cray.”
Ndumi Ndlovu (@NdumiNdlovu): “Dear @Beyoncé South Africa is waiting for you. 2014. #BeyReady”. Zhorina (@zhorinaisaacs): “Beyoncé please come to South Africa #pleaseGod.”
Asked to comment on Friday, Justin van Wyk of Big Concerts said the company was not involved in their tours, but would be announcing a “mother of a line-up” in the next two weeks. In the short term, Big Concerts gigs coming up include the Dave Matthews Band on November 30, Nickelback on December 11 and 12, and Bryan Adams on January 28.
Glen Netshipise, of Canoc Productions, said they also did not have information. “It depends on the artists’ availability. The rand is weak so it is difficult to say. It also depends on their dates. It is usually tours that come from Australia, and Beyoncé is there right now,” he said.
Canoc is bringing double Grammy-winning soul singer Maxwell to Cape Town on December 5.
Showtime Management could also hold the key to the next international blockbuster show. It is involved in bringing comedian Russell Brand’s Messiah Complex show to South Africa. Tony Feldman, a director, said they were going to make an announcement in the next week about a “really big international music act”.
He told Weekend Argus that Ultra Music Festival was heading here on February 15 – featuring DJs Tiesto, Alesso and Nicky Romero, at the Cape Town Ostrich Ranch.
