Local artists set to rock Jozi and Cape Town - see Zahara, Toya Delazy, MiCasa plus more to join international artist in the spotlight.

International musician Ed Roland of Collective Soul fame, will not only be accompanied by a 65-piece symphonic orchestra, but will also be joined on stage by local artists MiCasa and Zahara, Tumi and the Volume, Freshly Ground’s Zolani Mahola and Ard Matthews, as well as the soulful Chiano Sky and electro-pop singing sensation, Toya Delazy; and finally, popular rock hit-makers, aKing.

Andy Mac, the event’s creator, says that Collective Soul were the natural choice for the event. “We wanted to really raise the bar for this year’s show, and while we’ve always had only top quality musicians in our lineup, having international rock royalty like Ed Roland on the bill just adds that extra something special this year,” explains Mac.

“Collective Soul are no strangers to performing with symphonic backing, having done a live concert DVD with the Atlanta Youth Symphony Orchestra in 2005. This mind-blowing performance, coupled with the simple fact of Ed’s pure musical genius, meant that he was undoubtedly my first choice and I’m over the moon to have him on board.”

HEINEKEN Symphonic Rocks 2012 is a world class, cross-genre live music show ranging from rock to pop, adult contemporary, R&B, hip hop, electro and soul, all set against the breath-taking onstage backing of a 65-piece symphonic orchestra.
