Mark Haze to open for Bon Jovi – Tues 7th May at Cape Town Stadium

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.
