Why is it that artists miss a large part of Africa when they are performing live in a worldwide tour? Are we not part of the world?
When I am oversees, the amount of concerts one can go to is unbelievable. If I could I would spend a summer in London just watching live performances however I certainly don't have the financial means to make that a possibility. So I wait here, patiently, in good old South Africa for artists to come and perform their music, so that I may have the pleasure of feeling the emotional ride I experience when I listen to their music, only live.
So to bring this post back to the first line, this sucks balls!
I have to give a big ups to Skunk Anansie, I have had the pleasure to see them live. Twice. Amazing!
Now I am a fan of music, all music, and we do have amazing local things to attend. Local bands to relish in but once in a while can't the Northern Hemisphere throw us a bone and come perform the music we so delight in.
Artists I would give my left tit to see live:
Antony and the Johnsons
