PRIME CIRCLE add a third show to their sold out Johannesburg LET THE NIGHT IN Arena Tour
Prime Circle have added a third show to the Johannesburg leg of their The Let the Night In Arena Tour after the first two nights on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 July have sold out. Tickets have gone on sale for the new show – a matinee on Sunday 20 July from 3pm at the Montecasino Teatro.
The two hour long show showcases the band at its spellbinding best, inspired by their recent European tour of Belgium, Spain and France. “Each concert is going to be an event, rather than just a show,” explains front man Ross Learmonth. “This is our first stand-alone arena tour, and our biggest tour of South Africa. Audiences can expect an explosion of feeling and visuals – it’s going to be totally over the top, and we’re all super-amped about it.”
Local fans will be among the first to see Prime Circle performing hot-off-the-presses tracks from their stylistically adventurous new album, Let the Night In – including the first radio single, Gone. Plus, they’ll be playing all the hits that South Africans know so well, which have helped elevate Prime Circle to the position of the country’s premier rock act in the 13 years since their inception.
Prime Circle are: Ross Learmonth (guitar and vocals); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboards) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar)

European promoters sign Prime Circle for 30-date tour
South African rock outfit Prime Circle are back with a bang and will soon be setting off on a 30-date European tour to promote their eagerly awaited new album.
The multi award-winning band have been hard at work in studio for the past several months, writing and recording their sixth album, Let the Night In. Now, they are back doing what they love best: performing for their growing army of fans around the world.
Prime Circle confirmed this week that they have been in talks with European promoters to perform a number of gigs in support of the new album, which is being released on 13 June 2014.
Their two-part European tour kicks off in Amsterdam on 27 June 2014 and continues in October. It will include several performances in leading music venues across Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Belgium – and, for the first time, concerts in France and Spain.
This strong interest from international promoters indicates that Prime Circle’s regular forays on the European live performance circuit in recent years are bearing fruit.
In addition to opening for top bands such as 3 Doors Down and Seether in the rock capitals of the world, they have been consistently gigging in countries such as Germany – making inroads into new markets while consolidating their existing fanbase.
“We’re really excited about heading back to Europe to launch the new album,” says singer-songwriter Ross Learmonth. “Securing this massive international tour means that all hard yards we have put in overseas are truly paying off. We’ve been steadily building our support base across Europe and can’t wait to introduce our brand-new songs to our fans. They’re going to be blown away!”
After 13 years of making waves as South Africa’s most successful rock act, the five-piece is back with Let the Night In, a new studio album infused with fresh creative energy.
