"AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH SEETHER” TOUR IN SOUTH AFRICA AND THE 2ND PARKLIFE FESTIVAL
"We are really excited to present our second Parklife, a unique urban event that is a full bodied entertainment option. We have an exceptional mix of the best local bands, headliners and some exciting newcomers, that we are really proud to have play at our event. Don’t waste a day, get out this summer, and have fun," comments Damon Forbes, Head of Breakout Management.
SEETHER embarked on a unique, semi-acoustic tour, “An Intimate Evening With Seether”, performing in Cape Town and Durban, and then headlining the next PARKLIFE FESTIVAL in Johannesburg. These 3 shows provided Seether fans with the ultimate backdrop to experience seeing the band with a storytellers-type atmosphere
Local acts that joined SEETHER on all 3 of the shows for the PARKLIFE FESTIVAL in Johannesburg on the 24th of November, were The Dirty Skirts, ISO and Shortstraw,
Jeremy Loops, Graeme Watkins Project, Matthew Mole, Farryl Purkiss, Beatenberg, Taxi Violence, Shortstraw and ISO. The BOS Ice Tea Music Stage hosted names such as Nakhane Toure, Michael Lowman, December Streets, Shaun Jacobs and the Electronic Stage hosted Johnny Neon and The Frown.
In support of the tour, Seether released a career retrospective "Greatest Hits" double CD which will include a collection of their greatest songs along with three new tracks, rare b-sides and live tracks.
Seether has sold millions of albums and singles worldwide, has over 63 million YouTube views and are mainstays in the touring circuit averaging more than 275 performances per year. They have had 11 #1 singles and 17 Top 5 hits across multiple formats at radio. Formed in Jo'Burg by Shaun Morgan and Dale Stewart, Seether made its initial impact on U.S. hearts and eardrums with the Gold album Disclaimer (2002).
The album's first single, "Fine Again" was a pensive ballad that resonated with fans worldwide. Seether gained nationwide live exposure with a spot on that year's Ozzfest tour. Seether rerecorded the acoustic track "Broken" as an electric version featuring Evanescence vocalist Amy Lee. "Broken" became a massive international hit for the group.
In 2004, Seether remixed and remastered Disclaimer, adding eight new songs and new cover art to create the two-disc set Disclaimer II, which is now twice Platinum. In 2005, Seether released Karma & Effect, which is certified Gold, approaching Platinum and followed that release up in 2006 with a live, acoustic CD/DVD, One Cold Night, which is now approaching Gold.
In 2007 Seether released the Platinum Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces. The album was reissued in 2009 with a cover of George Michael's "Careless Whisper," and became another Platinum single release for the band. In 2011 Seether released Holding onto Strings Better Left to Fray. That album is approaching Gold status.
