The Lumineers head to SA in April

Dec 22, 2016, Author: Hello Joburg

Not only does 2017 bring us Justin Bieber and The Vamps – now Big Concerts are bringing us  The Lumineers and their Cleopatra World Tour, and they will be performing on 28th April 2017 at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg.

Their second album Cleopatra proved Schultz and Fraites – along with cellist/vocalist Neyla Pekarek – are neither taking their fortune for granted, nor sitting back on their laurels.

With the help of producer Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers, The Avett Brothers) the band ensconced themselves in a recording in Clubhouse, a recording studio high atop a hill in rural Rhinebeck, N.Y. Influences for the album include Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. The band added “The record is our greatest hits reflecting what’s happened to use over the last three years”.

The band’s self-titled debut album sold 3 million copies worldwide and earned them 2 Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Americana Album.  The first single “Ho Hey” spent 62 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and it’s follow up, “Stubborn Love” climbed to #1 on the Alternative radio charts and was also featured on President Obama’s Summer Playlist.

With four years between their albums. The Lumineers are quite excited to get back out on the road and, as Wesley puts it “connect with the new record and have people connect with it”
