Calum Scott adds Durban stop to SA tour

British singer-songwriter Calum Scott has added a Durban stop on his Only Human Tour of South Africa and will perform at the Durban Botanic Gardens on 9 November 2018. Scott's other stops in SA include the Cape Town International Convention Centre on 10 November 2018 and the Marks Park in Johannesburg on 11 November 2018.
“I love announcing news and watching it spread like wildfire. When I announced my shows in South Africa, the response to my first ever shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town was incredible, but I kept seeing how much people wanted me to play in Durban too. The fans spoke, I listened. That is the reason I have added a show in Durban - I live to please my fans, so I cannot wait to play to such amazing and supportive fans. Counting down the days already,” said Scott.

His heartwarming appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 shot him to instant global stardom, and when he officially released his audition song Dancing On My Own as the lead single from his debut album Only Human, it took the world by storm. Dancing On My Own quickly charted in over 34 countries on Spotify, peaking at number one on the viral chart in six countries, including the US. Now certified platinum in four countries, three times platinum in South Africa, it was the best-selling UK single of 2016 by a British solo artist and was nominated for a Brit Award for best single. The song has over 550 million streams worldwide, while views of the video are approaching 225 million.  

Calum Scott's Only Human SA tour dates announced

Only Human is the result of a long, cathartic songwriting journey. The album has already gone gold in South Africa, with single You Are The Reason reaching three times platinum in SA. Filled with deeply personal material, Scott’s ability to transform pain into beauty is undeniable, whether he is addressing coming out to his father, unrequited longing, adolescent isolation, or the gratitude he feels toward his sister Jade, who pushed him to sing on stage for the first time and auditioned alongside him on Britain’s Got Talent.

Scott’s elegantly sculpted pop centres on his soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, exemplified in gently uplifting single You Are The Reason, aching piano ballad Hotel Room and hit single Rhythm Inside. The singer’s ability to consistently build on his gift for poignant, emotionally charged performances is a sure sign of the lasting impact the Englishman will continue to have on all who hear his voice.
