“Lets go do a show in Brazil,” Bieber’s manager said. “It will be so relaxing,” he said. Well, after what has been a very hectic week in Brazil, it doesn’t look like JB will be going back any time soon. First, he attempts to leave a brothel under a bed sheet, but gets caught anyway. And now this. It feels as if, by some divine mercy, some sort of deity has heard the worlds’ anti-Bieber sentiments,and has answered them oh so swiftly.
That’s right, Bruce Springsteen is making a trip across the Atlantic for two shows in South Africa. The Boss has sold 120 million albums, won 20 Grammy’s, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award – so it’s fair to say that him coming here is big news, even if you weren’t born when he had his first hit single.

Pop-rock diva Bonnie Tyler will be performing at the Cape Town Convention Centre on 6 and 7 September 2013. This will be Tyler’s first return to the country after 20 years. Tyler’s famously husky voice led to her being called “the female Rod Stewart”. Fun fact! Tyler was born with the name ‘Gaynor Hopkins’. Good move, on the change, Bonnie.
One doesn’t always expect a wardrobe malfunction on stage when an international singer is performing. But very rarely does one hear of a singer’s hair being caught in a fan. That is what happened to Beyonce while performing at her concert in Montreal.
Footage of Justin Bieber’s Cape Town concert is starting to hit the net. We’ve gathered some very cool pics and video of the performance.

It’s hard to believe that one can be driven close to breakdown over the chance of seeing another human being in the flesh. Such is the power of Justin Bieber. Please witness this local 15-year-old completely losing it. They call this “Bieber Fever.”
Aah yes, who can forget The Usual’s live gigs in the mid to late 90s, in venues like Taboo in Claremont. God, it was glorious. And so were you, before you pushed out two kids and developed a boep. All the more reason to take a break from the mundane and relive your glory days! Click for details.

A Big Concerts representative let slip yesterday that Justin Bieber would perform two shows in South Africa next year. Then a radio station gave away the first tickets this morning leaving little to the imagination.
Cape Town was visited by some distant cousin of hurricane Sandy yesterday, with 50km/h+ winds. Sadly for some concert goers, a massive advertising tower was blown over at Cape Town stadium, crashing to the ground, killing 1 and injuring some 20 others.
A few days ago Green Day was performing at the I Heart Radio Festival in Las Vegas. Everything was going swimmingly until their 45 minute set was cut in half to give Usher and Rihanna more time to perform, the band’s frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, was not impressed.

Only the coolest of hipsters will be aware of THE THUNDERBIRDS. People like Passion from The Dirty Skirts – he will know most of these names. And if you aren’t aware of these guys, then please ask anyone over 45 who spent time in Cape Town in the 70s and 80s. Your parents probably made [...]
Everybody loves a celebrity humiliating him or herself. And, even though Lady Gaga humiliate herself frequently, here she is, falling off her piano stool during a recent concert in Houston, Texas. She doesn’t just fall, she rolls around a bit and then ends up under the piano. Bravo for carrying on singing though.
Witnessing U2 in concert was a big deal for a lot of people, but spotting Ryan Reynolds (in town shooting a film with Denzel Washington) at the concert may well have increased the blood pressure of a few young ladies! We managed to get hold of a few pics of Ryan Reynolds at Friday’s concert. [...]
One of the classic moments during last night’s U2 concert at Cape Town stadium was when Bono and Yvonne Chaka Chaka covered the classic Ben E. King hit, “Stand by me.” The whole also sang along. We managed to catch the moment on video camera. Follow the link to check it out!
Everybody is talking about the start of U2′s concert, which had Bono waxing lyrical about Cape Town and South Africa. But then he went for a pretty cool vibe and compared each band member to a wild animal. “What manner of exotic creature do we have here” was hilarious (for The Edge)! Then Bono called [...]
