Support Act: Justin Bergh
Justin Bergh is an established South African singer songwriter with three albums and a string of hits under his belt.
Justin‘s debut album Love the Sinner (2000) included the single “No Ordinary World” which featured on the South African Big Brother reality television series. It was followed with Out of My Hands (2003), which earned him a nomination for Best Rock Album at the South African Music Awards. This success brought on an opportunity for Justin to perform the South African national anthem in front of 82,000 rugby fans at Twickenham Stadium in 2006 before a test match between South Africa and England.
His soon to be released album ‘Inside Out‘ (2010) has already had success with two hit singles making their mark internationally. ‘Special‘ was used as the theme for the American cable network Showtime and his current ‘Miss America‘ was penned by Bryan Adams himself who gave Justin Bergh permission to use the track for the album.
Justin Bergh commented “This is probably the highlight of my career to be performing on the same stage as Bryan. He has been a huge influence in my style of music and I hold him in very high regard.”
