With the renowned love-ballad singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran soon to perform in South Africa, Big Concerts has announced that English music sensation Passenger will be opening the show.

Passenger, a songwriter and musician is known for his hit singleLet her go’, which won the Ivor Novello Award for the Most Performed Work and was also nominated for a Brit award.

This is not the first time Passenger will be visiting South Africa; his first nation-wide tour took place in 2015 and was a massive hit with locals.

Fans will be happy to know that due to increased demand, additional seated tickets have been released for the second Cape Town show, which is scheduled to take place on March 28 2019.

The concert will take place at the Cape Town Stadium, and Big Concerts advises locals to purchase their tickets quickly before they sell out. Currently, there are limited standing tickets left to purchase.
