10 of South Africa’s biggest music heroes. One stage. 3 Hours of non-stop power hits.  Blood Brothers is ready to fight for their rightful rock legacy as South Africa’s first ever super-group.

South Africa has a legion of rock legends and local talent who participate in the fight against cancer in support of the Vrede Foundation – and we’ve picked the top ten to take us to war. As one band, they’ll unite to conquer one of the biggest struggles to date. The army of Blood Brothers will perform the major hits that brought them each to fame, plus taking you on a journey through the songs that influenced their sound.

Each Super Group band member has been cherry picked from our country’s premier crop of musicians and bands. The choices are bold, the talent undeniable, the result – unforgettable. Raw, razor sharp and ready for battle are 5 vicious vocalists: Arno Carstens, Albert Frost, Francois Van Coke, George van der Spuy and Kobus De Kock jnr. Bare-knuckled and armed with the ultimate artillery of guitars and bass, are Hunter Kennedy, Rian Zietsman and Loedi Van Reenen while Jason Hinch and Isaac Klawansky dirty up the drums as they lead their comrades into combat.

This ten-strong Super Group is a fearless and formidable force to be reckoned with as Blood Brothers blows up at the Big Top Arena, Carnival City on the 18th July 2015.  Cape Town, don’t fear – you are set to be hit by the Blood Brothers too.  So far the venue, Grand West Casino, and the date, 23 September 2015, have been confirmed.

Tickets to the Johannesburg show are available through WebTickets.

Vrede Foundation is an initiative that aims to educate young people about cancer. By combining the toughest of the tough, this Super Group stands shoulder-to-shoulder in a sheer show of talent and rock glory for an excellent cause.

As Blood Brothers become brutes, may the chaos commence.

  1. Attended the Carnival City Concert on 18 July. This concert was absolutly mind blowing. It should be a yearly event. I am Even a fan of arno carstens now .

  2. I agree with Sharon, it was mind-blowing – both in a positive and in a negative way. It was also eardrum blowing. The sound “engineer” at the back of the Big Top arena let the guys down big time. Did they not do a dry run prior to the show? Or, were was the lone sound “engineer” at the back of the arena completely out of his depth? How can SUCH a talented crew rely on one individual at the back of the arena? Or is it unfair to put the blame squarely on 1 “wet behind the ears” sound “engineer” when the collective should have prepped him beforehand?
