Werner Bekker has been confirmed as the official opening act for Jeremy Loops at The Barnyard Theatre Rivonia on 12 July 2019, which forms part of the looping artist’s Golden Waves Tour.
Jeremy Loops is currently on a nationwide tour in celebration of his singles ‘Gold’ and ‘Waves’ receiving gold certification in South Africa.
This comes as an enormous honour for folk singer-songwriter Werner Bekker, who similarly has been making waves locally with his recent single ‘Open Spoken’ – which reached #2 on the Jacaranda FM SA Top 20 last month.
The local musician has been hard at work for the last eight years building his brand and career and garnering the attention of industry heavyweights. Having performed at top major festivals in the country and with the release of his professionally recorded EP ‘Parts of a Broken Man’, Werner is well on his way to finally breaking the glass ceiling. With the hopes of taking his music global in 2020, the performer is excited to be linking up with Jeremy on this performance.
He says, “As a child I watched my heroes on TV perform in front of captivated audiences. Thanks to this spectacular turn of events and Jeremy Loops, I will finally get to share the stage with a true legend. This guy is such an inspiration to every young artist in South Africa and abroad. I remember seeing his BalconyTV video a couple of years back and feeling inspired. To me, this was proof that a singer-songwriter could succeed in South Africa. A few years on and he has proven to me that South African artists can not only make it here but also worldwide. I am honoured and excited to be joining this show and cannot express my gratitude enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
