Stealing Love Jones take a break from making it big in the USA to rock their South African fans throughout December.
Presented by Boudoir Live Productions, EntertainmentAfrica.com and 94.7 Highveld Stereo, the Stealing Love Jones ‘Homecoming Tour' sees the fiery band heat up summer at 16 shows nationwide. Stopping off in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, the month-long tour features top local acts like Prime Circle and Cassette playing alongside the dynamic Esjay Jones and her all-new American band.
Highlights on the way include Durban's massive Rock On Summer event headlined by Prime Circle and also featuring Cassette, and an unplugged set with Farryl Purkiss and Australian singer-songwriter Lior.
With SA's biggest names like Heroes Wear Red, Voodoo Child and Starplayer also playing support, the Stealing Love Jones Homecoming Tour kicks off in Johannesburg on 4 December and ends with an even bigger bang at the Ballito New Years Eve Party with Zebra & Giraffe, DJ Fresh and more on 31 December.
It's certainly set to be a triumphant homecoming for the group with big ambitions
Since moving to San Diego in August to try a new venture in the Los Angeles music scene, Esjay and her new boys (Daniel Kurts – drums, Christian Rush Williams – guitar, Rowdy Bossard – bass) have opened for Sprung Monkey and 'Rockstar: Supernova' heroine Dilana and seen their song 'Don't Blame Britney' nominated for a Hollywood Music Award.
During the same short three months, the singles 'Hospital' and 'Dont Blame Britney', from the 'Bleed Too Bloom' album, have been playlisted on San Diego radio station 94.9, mirroring the rapid rise Stealing Love Jones made in South Africa.
The country's most promising pop-rock act since forever, the group managed to make their mark on the local music, fashion and surf scene in the short space of just four years, boasting six Top 10 radio singles, headline status at SA's major music festivals and sharing the stage with the likes of One Republic and Maroon5.
But that wasn't enough. At the beginning of 2008 Stealing Love Jones embarked on a three-month self-financed tour of North America that included performances in New York City and showcases for major labels at LA's famed Viper Room. A little over a year later Esjay made the move back – permanently.
Now she's brought home by dynamic promoters Boudoir Live Productions, EntertainmentAfrica.com (South Africa's leading entertainment portal) and 94.7 Highveld Stereo, Joburg’s No.1 Hit Music Station.
