Big Concerts and 94.5 KFM confirmed today that Mark Haze will open for Bon Jovi, alongside Elvis Blue, live at Cape Town Stadium tomorrow.
94.5 KFM ran a poll that allowed fans to vote for which local artist/band they wanted to open for Bon Jovi.
The short list was then sent to Bon Jovi’s management for approval who chose Mark Haze for the Cape Town performance.
Mark Haze is no stranger to the big stage.
He signed to Universal Music after becoming the runner up in South African Idols 2011 and went onto release his debut album ‘Where Angels Fear to Fly’.
His first single ‘Out of my Head’ went to gold status and was the most downloaded song in South Africa in 2011.
His follow up single ‘Wake Up’ went to number one on the SA charts and holds the record for the longest stay on the chart, with a massive 23 weeks on the Kia Take40 SA.
His current single ‘The best of the worst’ is currently playing on all major stations and his music video is featured on the ‘Now 64’ DVD.
With one of the greatest catalogues of songs in the history of rock n’ roll, Bon Jovi has sold more than 125 million albums and racked up a stellar resume of career accomplishments. Bringing their signature brand of rock ‘n’ roll back to the people, Bon Jovi will be performing live in South Africa in May 2013.
The band’s return to the road in 2013 will cap an incredible run which has secured Bon Jovi’s status as the essential live rock band – having performed more than 2,700 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 35 million fans, and earning the #1 grossing worldwide tour twice in just three years. “Because We Can – The Tour” will also debut brand new songs from new album What About Now, due out in Spring 2013, loading even more ammunition into the band’s huge arsenal of hits including “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “Who Says
