Prime Circle at Crossways this weekend

2009-03-20 00:00

Awarding-winning rock band Prime Circle begin the KZN leg of their Consider the World tour in the midlands this weekend. The show will be hosted at Crossways in Hilton and the band will be promoting their album All or Nothing.

The album received rave reviews during the Cape Town leg of the band’s tour, with a standout show being at Kirstenbosch Gardens, part of the Old Mutual Summer Sunset concert series.

When asked about his feelings about the tour, band front man Ross Learmonth joked, "We've been on tour for the past seven-and-a-half years … We’ve never stopped touring since we began, but ja, this particular tour has been on the road ever since the album hit the shelves and the response has been phenomenal.”

Learmonth said that audiences are responding positively to the album, and the reception at the band's shows is testament to this. "They sing songs off the new album — you know, stuff that we didn’t even like they like as singles!"

All or Nothing went gold about three weeks ago, making it the band's fastest-selling album. Learmonth feels that this is their best offering yet, because of how long the band has been together.

"This album is different in the sense that have we all known each other a lot longer now, and we understand each other better. So it’s improved the way we write, play and perform,” he said.

Prime Circle have certainly expanded the brand, not only have they signed a new deal with EMI Music South Africa, but they plan to release this album into key global markets later this year. They also have a DVD of the live performance of their album launch in the pipeline, which Learmonth promises will take the standard of DVD production in South Africa to a whole new level.

Tickets are available at R100, on sale at Crossways, Classic Surf at Midlands Mall and Essense Deli (café at the Wetherley Centre). Inquiries: 033 343 3267.
