Breakout Events announced the debut South African tour of British singer and songwriter JP Cooper is set for August.

Known for his global hit "September Song“ off his debut album ”Raised Under Grey Skies“, Cooper has a huge fan base in Mzansi with followers beaming with excitement at the news of his visit.

The announcement of his first world tour comes on the brink of his new music release project coming soon. Cooper recently shared the refreshing news, hinting at a string of collaborations he will be working on in 2023 and 2024.

Among the list of excited fans were Season 11 Idols SA finalist Lloyiso Gijana, who said: “Yess bro! Excited to see you live🤞🏾”

The singer sets foot at The Old Biscuit Mill in Cape Town on Thursday, August 24, as the first leg of the tour and then performs at this year’s Parklive Festival in Joburg, which marks it’s 10th year anniversary.

The event is being held at the Marks Park in Emmarentia, Johannesburg on August 26.

Durban fans get their live experience at the Parklive Festival at the Durban Botanical Garden at uMphafa Field on Sunday August 27.

Those attending the Parklive Festival sessions are in for a treat with an extra added line-up including Matthew Mole and the band GoodLuck co-headlining the Joburg and Durban festivals.

In a statement released by Breakout Events, Cooper said: "Being on stage has never been a comfortable place for me. The time, energy and mental preparation it has taken me in the past to get out on tour has sometimes been overwhelming, but coming out of lockdown and getting back out on the road over the past few months has reminded me how special it was being in a room with you all.

“Seeing people smile, cry and sing along again has really helped to change my perspective on live performance, so I’m super happy to announce my South African tour. Album three is currently under construction so we might have to leak some for you so you can sing along to these new songs.. 😃”

Amped fans took to Cooper’s Instagram announcement post to share their excitement
