For the first time in over a decade, South African rock legends Lithium will be performing live and loud up north at Johannesburg’s premier live music venue, Rumours Rock City! Joining them on the night will be Deadline, Jasper Dan, Dirty Moonshine, The Blacktop Rebels, and The Tainted.
The iconic Lithium are South Africa’s rock royalty and part of the select few bands that broke out in the 90’s opening the door for South African rock music to be noticed around the world. The band were one of the first to have their music video featured on MTV globally, as well as opening for Iron Maiden on their 1995 X Factor tour. With hit songs such as ‘Schizoid’, ‘Bite It’, and ‘Soul Trip’ which tore up radio charts, Lithium laid the way for South African rock to be taken notice of on a global scale. Dave Owens, frontman for Lithium, is ecstatic about the band’s return to Gauteng. “We can’t express how excited we are to be playing our first show in Johannesburg in over 10 years. The Brochella shows have a great reputation, and they have pulled together an insane line up of bands. This is going to be one hell of a show! We will be performing a wide set of tracks from all our releases as well as some reworked ‘old/new’ stuff. We hope to see a lot of our old fans at Rumours Rock City on 26 January. Spread the word, we are coming!” says Owens.
Joining them on the night will be Deadline, who will be opening for Judas Priest in Johannesburg in March 2019. Jasper Dan who also performed alongside Iron Maiden. Dirty Moonshine make their triumphant return to Rumours Rock City joined by Johannesburg’s hottest new rock act, The Blacktop Rebels. To top it all off, The Tainted will be opening the evening with their touch of elegant hard rock.
