American soul and R&B singer Freddie Jackson has announced he is coming to South Africa.

As part of his You Are My Lady South Africa Tour, he is set to perform at Sun City Superbowl on September 23 and 24, Emperors Palace in Kempton Park on September 30, with the final leg of the tour at the Durban ICC on October 1. 

“I am so excited to be coming to South Africa for the very first time. I have heard so many good stories about this beautiful country and how much the people of Mzansi love my music. I cannot wait to have a good time with my South African fans. 

“I will perform all their favourite hits, and I promise to give them the best time of their lives,” he said in a statement shared with TshisaLIVE.

The singer, who has many hits under his belt, including You Are My Lady, Rock Me Tonight, All I Ever Ask, and Have You Ever Loved Somebody, will finally get to serenade his South African fans, who are set to be dressed in all white for his chosen theme.

Thabiso Mogashwa, director of Remoakantse Holdings, who recently brought another US crooner Glenn Jones to South Africa, said he was anticipating bringing another international star to South Africa. 

“We always strive to bring international artists we know to be favourites among South Africans. Recently, Glenn Jones hit our shores, and his concerts at Sun City were sold out. 

“We are, again, bringing the multi-award-winning Freddie Jackson, whose music is loved by many South Africans. We are excited to be the first ones to bring him to South Africa, and he is excited as well to be coming to our country for the first time. We encourage his fans to buy the tickets now before the shows are sold out.”

Tickets, priced from R450 to R1,150, are now available at Ticketpro, PayZone or at a Spar near you.
